Best TRP novels?

I am reading “Women: A Novel” by Bukowski, and the main character is a 50 year old MGHOW banging 30 year olds. Pretty on track with TRP philosophy. Any other recommendations?

Keep The Aspidistra Flying by George Orwell - This covers the fate of a man who despises the role money has in society. Most of the critique is about our consumerist system in general, but relevant to TRP, he's sure that he'd be more attractive with more money and despises that he can't just "be himself" effectively, working a job he loves more, and still have success. He ends up effectively trapped in a not-great relationship and a slave to money.

The Snows of Kilimanjaro by Enrest Hemingway - Actually just about anything by Hemingway will do, but this short story (I have it in a collection of short stories) in particular covers interactions between a man and a woman that are reasonably TRP in nature. Oh! Also "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber".

The Odyssey by Homer. This is the Ancient Greek tale, in addition to the Iliad. Covers Odysseus, a hero who also has some darker traits, notably being quite comfortable and charismatic with lying about who he is. After a long exile, Odysseus finally returns home to find around 100 young men trying to show off and impress his wife to get her to marry them instead (Odysseus having been gone). He first demonstrates his physical prowess over them, and then kills them.

I also want to hit back a bit at that other comment:

That book is shit. Trust me when I say this there's no real TRP fiction out there. The bad boy is always the bad character and never the protagonist

This person just hasn't read enough. Read a lot, as much as you can, and more and more and great classic fiction, and you'll find plenty of TRP themes in it.

The Illiad has a lot of AWALT examples straight out of the 8th century BC

[–]DiskKiller22 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

”The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” is a story of a Red Pill transformation, pretty much. Hemingway always works in this context.

[–]obionekennedy1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don’t know why, but Aspidistra has left a deep effect on me. I get back to thinking about the book even after months of reading it. No book has ever done that for me.

[–]JesterBLB1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Hey, so I read The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber and it was very red pilled. One thing I loved about it was how it is not a "trp fantasy" like another guy here described. It's a journey (albeit short) of a man who undergoes a transformation. The things both men say and do felt very real and relatable. The internal dialogue of the hunter! Man, that was really something. Hemingway really captured an alpha's mindset through his thoughts.

All in all, a very good read. Thanks for recommending!

[–]boom_bostic0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I second anything by Hemingway.

The man came up in a time when most men and women were still naturally redpilled. So his writings exude that.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

The Count of Monte Cristo

Set in early 1800's, it's the story of an innocent man wrongly, but deliberately imprisoned and his strategy for revenge against those who betrayed him.

[–]anycolouryoulike990 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

also his fiance Mercédes married another man

[–]Irtotallynotrobot28 points29 points  (5 children) | Copy

Trp fantasy books kinda piss me off so I stick to biographies as best I can. Learning about someone's life is always enriching

[–]IndiansSmellLikePoo14 points15 points  (1 child) | Copy

Those books/red pill fiction sounds really counter intuitive and pathetic. The first rule of fight club really applies here

Why not live out your own life like a badass or learn from successful guys who have endless amounts of women around them?

[–]Irtotallynotrobot0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah exactly. It's just BP fantasies. Don't get me wrong, I have my own stupid vices so I get it. I also think that writing off fantasy as a whole is cuts you off from many great writers, so it's not worth writing off the genre as a whole

[–]oVerde0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

But what books then?

[–]Niko0p90 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Which biographies would you recommend?

[–]umizumiz2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Whoever you're interested in.

I'm sure even Madonna had a biography, so whoever you admire or want to have a better understanding of how they achieved their status.

[–]BusterVadge7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Jack Reacher novels.

[–]Immuchtooawesome3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Atlas Shrugged and Anthem are pretty decent.

[–]light-----------dark8 points9 points  (4 children) | Copy

Ayn Rand’s - The Fountainhead.

Brilliant piece of literature following the main character’s mission and purpose in life.

[–]Theguygotgame7776 points7 points  (3 children) | Copy

Except it's boring as shit.

[–]Captain_Quick 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

How about Ayn Rand's Anthem?

[–]bobmartin242 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Anthem is a short read and gets her point across more quickly than some of her other books.

[–]rolo_tony_1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It took me like three months to get through this book. It became a chore as I felt it was a lot longer than it needed to be - definitely boring at some points. The trial at the end was a good read though.

[–]Kobinks2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

After by Anne Todd, it’s poorly written one direction fan fiction that has pretty realistic portrayals of an abusive relationship.

It’s just a few hundred pages of arguements, insecurity and banging.

It’s also shit.

Would recommend.

[–]mega_kook2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is the recommendation I came here for! Also I heard Twilight is pretty rad...

[–]deathhandmachiavelli1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fools Die - Mario Puzo.

An okay book, there's some red pill stuff in there.

[–]youcantdenythat1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'll be dammed, there's a sub called redpillbooks

[–]RStonePT1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fight club...

finally some good news by delicious tacos

[–]Ravenscar72 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

That book is shit. Trust me when I say this there's no real TRP fiction out there. The bad boy is always the bad character and never the protagonist. And when he is the protagonist some boring moral point has to be made or he has to change and get give up his lifestyle of banging anyone he wants to get settled down. No writer I know has the balls to make Chad the centre of a novel. Because most writers have never been a Chad.

Regardless I can give you some close recommendations.

That honestly all I can think of.

ayn rand

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy

Not sure why you've been downvoted. Ayn Rand was an RP woman, no question:

"I do not think that a rational woman can want to be president. Observe that I did not say she would be unable to do the job; I said that she could not want it. It is not a matter of her ability, but of her values"

"The issue is primarily psychological. It involves a woman’s fundamental view of life, of herself and of her basic values. For a woman qua woman, the essence of femininity is hero-worship – the desire to look up to man"

"To act as the superior, the leader, virtually the ruler of all the men she deals with, would be an excruciating psychological torture"

I guess the downvotes came in because people saw a woman and scoffed that one could be RP in nature.

[–]Shieldless_One1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

The second quote about hero-worship I think sums up hypergamy and trp nicely. Women love up, men love down. Make yourself the hero of your life and women will want to follow.

I liked “Post Office” better than women. Both good reads.

[–]independent_rooster0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

there is an actual "the red pill" book about which I stumbled a few days ago when I was reading about a portland ANTIFA group protesting the book signing at the library. It's a new book by Blake Nelson, I didn't read it yet but seems at least interesting. here is the link withe the protest news: https://www.wweek.com/arts/books/2019/07/16/powells-employees-protested-a-reading-by-a-portland-author-last-night/

[–]Sad_Sleeper0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Bel Ami by Maupassant

[–]PhilSoprano0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Starship Troopers, Dune, LotR Anything by Yukio Mishima. I would just stick to the classics for the most part

These books are „redpill“ in the broader sense, not necessarily what you might look for though.

[–]Senior EndorsedVasiliyZaitzev0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I'm going to say the Gor novels just so the Bloopers can wet themselves and shriek "See?! I told you so!!" to each other for hours.

[–]1RainySeasonInPH0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Probably the best recommendation ITT, regardless.

[–]1RainySeasonInPH0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Forget about trying to find a TRP novel, it doesn't exist.

Pick up a couple of random women's romances some time. The racy ones. This drivel is what women flick their beans to. If you don't truly believe in RP theory yet, the sheer narcissism of what get chicks wet will open your eyes.
