The alchemist- Paulo Coelho


I'm reading this right now. So far it's pretty good...It has alot of good morals and shit but it seems like it's in the form of a children's book.

Life is So Good - george dawson and richard glaubman

From Publishers Weekly
A 101-year-old retired laborer who enrolled in a literacy class near his Dallas, Tex., home at the age of 98, George Dawson now reads and writes on a third-grade level. From Dawson's eloquent words, co-writer Glaubman, a Seattle elementary school teacher, has fashioned two engrossing stories. First is the inspiring saga of how someone who was the grandson of a slave managed to navigate the brutally segregated small Texas town of Marshall, where Dawson was born, without losing his integrity or enjoyment of life. Although he worked from an early age and was never able to attend school, Dawson credits his strong family, especially his father, for giving him the skills to survive. His father told him to work hard, to do no wrong and always to avoid trouble with white people--advice that was brutally underscored the day he and his father witnessed a white mob lynching a black neighbor. The other theme running through these recollections is the institutionalized racism of the American South. Hardened to the entrenched discrimination that excluded him from good jobs and "white" restaurants and rest rooms, Dawson protested just once, when a woman for whom he was doing yard work expected him to eat with her dogs. Despite the harsh conditions of his life, he considers himself fortunate to have enjoyed food, housing, friends and family (he has outlived four wives and fathered seven children). This is an astonishing and unforgettable memoir. Agent, Harriet Wasserman. (Feb.)

East of Eden- John Steinbeck...his best book, way better then grapes, i even cried the last chapter

Nothing in this book is true but its exactly the way things are- Bob Frissell...Metaphysical book with wide array of theories connected to form an oppinion of our current reality, mind state. My post spirals runs along the same vein as this book...very spiritually awakening, at least to me, do not read this unless you are very open-minded.

merkaba,

you'd probably enjoy "god and the new physics" by paul davies. not too technical a book, written in everyday common language. not bad for a phycisist.

East of Eden is great, brilliant character construct.

I feel that everybody should read "a suitable boy" by Vikram Seth,

even though it's apparently the longest work of fiction ever written at nearly 1500 pages, it doesn't drag and feel long...actually you wish it to be longer.
Vikram Seth is an amazing author, he has a skill of describing everyday things, and injecting great life and credibility into them.

Really? It doesn't seem like that would be the longest work of fiction. Yeah, that's quite long, but it seems like surely there would be longer books out there.

"The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion." by henry darger (i believe) is 15,000 pages long. it took him something like 60 years to write it.

I suggest the following:

'The Kybalion' by THREE INITIATES (covers the 7 hermetic principles also known as universal law)

'Sanctuary of Self' by Ralph Luis
'Future Memory' by P.M.H. Atwater
'The Illuminati Papers' by Robert Anton Wilson
'Siddhartha' by Hermann Hesse

just to name a few

read it and i was so disapointed...the chracters were not developed properly thus making them seem flat and un-interesting...the book also tried too hard to scare but it couldnt cos it killed itself...it had potential but it was crap...you want a novel to scare you read mike connelly:bad men.

Thanks to ME for refferring it to you 8) lol


right now i'm reading The Greatest Miracle In The World, by Og Mandino...

has anyone else heard or read this?
it sounded like a religious book when it ws first given to me so i wasn't quite interested...but the other day had nothing to read and started it, the story is quite phenomenal...
it is a short book so i should be done soon...

it's an inspirational story about Og Mandino after becoming a best selling author and recieving a lot of praise for a book he wrote called "The Greatest Salesman in the World" he meets an old man and is interested by him...after talking and sharing stories Og realizes that this man actually lived the life of the character he wrote about in his previous book...
this is how far I am, it is quite interesting tho..
