Joey Wow. I didn't know this was a sub-genre.


message 2: by Rachel Adiyah (new)

Rachel Adiyah Honestly, I don't believe The Circle belongs in this list. SEVERE SPOILERS! I mean, the evil corporation and their brainwashed toadies not only win in the end, but the very concept of freedom of thought and privacy is completely destroyed. It's one of the feel-bad books of the decade.


message 3: by Neetriht (last edited Jan 19, 2019 10:44AM) (new)

Neetriht Someone who has read George Perec's Life: A User's Manual should add it to this list. Heavily influenced by Oulipo, as was Italo Calvino's If On A Winter's Night A Traveler, which I did add. I just couldn't deal with Perec so I removed that book from my shelves.

Oulipo: Sort of mathematical-literary nerdism to the Nth. Founded 1960, still going.
