Ohh I got some goodies for ya, Hermann Hesse is amazing and opened me up to many books.

  1. Just buy it right now..seriously. The Book of Mirdad by Mikhail Naimy

  2. Another Classic by Herman Hesse Demian

    3)Another with a similar feel as Siddhartha The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

    So these top 3 are the "closest" to Siddartha that I've read. You will defintely like the top 3, they are amazing books with such fundamental truths told through a story. All easy to read and similiar in length.

    These next 4 are just suggested for anyone that is into these types of books, I would almost guarantee that you will love them! They are just less "story" like. The Autobiography is an amazing read, and is indeed a story but it's non-fiction. The Way of Zen is just a beautiful book, but is not a fiction along with the Bhagavad and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (The author actually suggests Siddhartha in it!)

  3. If you liked Siddhartha heavily for it's spiritual aspects and the effect it left on you, this book has changed me deeply (they all have but this book is a little different) The Autobiography of a Yogi by
    Paramahansa Yogananda

    5)And his translation of The Bhagavad Gita

    6)Good ol' Allan Watts The Way of Zen

  4. Another highly suggested book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

    Enjoy my friend!

Try Krakauer's other well known book Into Thin Air, and because there's some controversy regarding his version of events, also The Climb by Anatoli Boukreev who was a major player that day.

Krakauer's other book Under the Banner of Heaven is a good "true crime" style story about some Morman murders, but may not be enough like Into the Wild to appeal to you.

Over the Edge of the World is more of a history, covering Magellan's circumnavigation of the earth. It was facinating and definately had intrigue, machinations, and survival elements.

Another book on exploration and survival, Endurance: Shakleton's Incredible Voyage

And another one, Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson. I think this is the one I read, but I can't be certain. It doesn't seem to be as well regarded, but i thought it was still interesting.

A book on diving and survival: The Last Dive, Chowdhury

The Hot Zone could be thought of as science survival. Anyway, you'll probably love the opening bits in Africa, although it does slow way down after that.

Far away from survival, but still about travel are the wonderful Bill Bryson's travelogues. Witty and informative. In a Sunburned Country and A Walk in the Woods are particularly recommended.

I really loved The Poisonwood Bible. And she wrote The Invention of Wings too, right?

Check out The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. It's science fiction, but written beautifully and the focus is on humanity and characterization, not "beep boop robots aliens" haha. This book really stuck with me after reading it, in the same way the Kingsolver novels did.

Also check out The Hummingbird's Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea. It's a semi-fictionalized account of the life of Teresita Urrea, and is also absolutely wonderful and will stick with you.

u/GlassArrow · 1 pointr/ifyoulikeblank

I'd suggest the short novel "Post Office" by Charles Bukowski and if you love the dark humor and grittiness of that you'll love Bukowski's book "Ham on Rye."

Just a quick snapshot (attached the amazon links below as their reviews give a good description) they are both statistical thinking on sports. Pardon my lack of clarity if its confusing at all, just got out of a midterm.

Moneyball explains, through one year of one team, how the new statistical methods were being developed and started to be used more.

Soccernomics is a book with a strong amount of analysis by economists in how the market has shaped up for transfers (trades) and any trends that have been set. Essentially they are both based off of 'advanced' statistics and interpretations through sports. I'm essentially most interested in managerial decisions in sports and any books on related topics.

Agree with robot_army_mutiny on Dick.
Mcmannis is a short story writer so any book you pick up will have some gems.
For Stephenson I like his newer work. Anathem is a good, intellectual read.
Also grab Nueromancer by Williams Gibson and any of the Wooster and Jeeves series by PG Wodehouse. The first is the father of cyberpunk and the second is a British humorist that Adams cites as a big influence.

Borges is a good choice, for sure. In fact, this is a really excellent collection that should make OP happy for a while.

Roger Zelazny is one of my favorite writers in any genre, and I second your recommendation of him in general, but I wouldn't consider him a magical realist. He wrote straight-up fantasy and science fiction, he just did it differently than anyone else.

Another recommendation: Donald Barthelme might be called a magical realist, but I don't know if he would identify as that. He wrote surreal and experimental short stories set in our world.

Also Kafka and Marquez.

House of Leaves. When I first heard about the book I didn't know anything about the plot - just that people who'd read it would report feeling that the walls around them started to shift and move as they were reading it, while others claimed to have weird dreams about the house even months after they'd finished the novel. Not a scary book, necessarily - but it will give you the creeps.

The typography is also insane, but it's thankfully not used in a gimmicky way, and serves the story very well as a narrative device. So far I've never read anything like it.

If you like Fallout, you will probably like "Wool", "Shift" and "Dust" by Hugh Howey. It's a post-apocalyptic series set inside a giant underground silo.

u/EmSixTeen · 3 pointsr/ifyoulikeblank

Gang Leader for a Day. Bought this on a whim at random when getting into reading and loved it. The author is a co-author of Freakonomics.

u/malcolm_money · 2 pointsr/ifyoulikeblank

You should read Simon Reynolds’ Shock and Awe, an excellent history/critical contextualization of glam (with an appendix tracking the influence of glam from the 80s to the present)

Check out the book: We

George Orwell got his inspiration for 1984 from this book. Short read but damn good.

u/newpong · 1 pointr/ifyoulikeblank

For fiction, check out some stuff by Neal stephenson like Cryptonomicon or Anathem

For non-fiction, maybe Hyperspace by Michio Kaku or Chaos by James Gleick.

Are you into classics, or could you enjoy some modern, punchy, gritty and sometimes downright nasty fiction, by the author of Trainspotting, Irvine Welsh?

He writes with a Scottish accent in places, and is not afraid of violence and - well - adult content, but if you are ok with all that malarkey, then might I suggest The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs?

Adult content warning.

If you prefer the classics with a dark twist, then perhaps you should try Goethe's Faust and/or Matthew Lewis' The Monk.

Edit: Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is another book that I found intriguing - for being introduced to the way of life, and how to cope with sociological issues, in the 17th Century, in Boston.

u/saucykavan · 2 pointsr/ifyoulikeblank

Maybe the Silo trilogy would work? It's technically sci-fi I suppose, but it's really about the characters. 'Wool' is the first book.

Colin Meloy writes books with his wife (who does all the Decemberists illustrations too)

right hurr

u/facebones2112 · 4 pointsr/ifyoulikeblank

House of leaves, one of my favorite books in the horror genre.
