Going to read 1984 by George Orwell again, by the way, i grew up strictly on dr suess and ronald dahl books, thats pretty dope that it has deeper meaning, guess i never took the time to look at it that way. lewis clark makes great points about writing kids books...Alice in Wonderland <- Dope Book with alot of deep meanings


it's roald you douche.

a sick book is "all quiet on the western front" by Erich Maria Remarque. if you don't know what it's about, it's a story of a german soldier on the front lines during the first world war. it's some really hard core shit, it was written in 1928 and is a classic beyond any doubt (english translations are easy to find). you won't look at war the same again after you've read this one.

if any of you cats like 1984, two books with the same type of idea are "the giver" by Lois Lawry and "Brave New World" by aldous huxley.

Catcher in the Rye is definitely on my list of things that i must read, i've heard good things about it...

I don't know about Grapes of Wrath, i've been told it's good but i'm not too fond of Steinbeck, basically it's because Of Mice and Men didn't really strike me as too good a book, but oh well...we'll see.

Alice in wonderland was written entirely on LSD. I remember in another thread I spoke about the different effects of acid and books, and the combination of both and I got attacked by most ppl lol The fact is a lot of great books are written under the influence of hallucinogens or opiates.

The Rose That Grew From Concrete.

A collection of poetry written by the rapper between 1989 and 1991, before he became famous. The poems are passionate, sometimes angry, and often compelling. Selections are reproduced from the originals in Shakur's handwriting, personalized by distinctive spelling and the use of ideographs (a drawing of an eye for I, etc.), and complete with scratch outs and corrections. With the exception of "In the Event of My Demise," all of the pieces are accompanied by typed text, which leaves his spelling intact. Some poems are also accompanied by his drawings. A few black-and-white photographs appear throughout. A preface by Shakur's mother, a foreword by Nikki Giovanni, and an introduction by his manager, Leila Steinburg, in whose writing group the poems were written, complete this unique volume.

End Times from the Islamic point of view. We always hear about the Christian view so this looks fresh and seems like there are parallels to each other.

I want to read this one. On Amazon.com it got 5 stars average rating.
