Anyone have.......Book suggestions?
    #4274424 - 06/09/05 02:45 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Let's start with the books I own already:
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
Slaughter House Five - Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
The Doors Of Perception - Aldous Huxley
Heaven And Hell - Aldous Huxley
Hell's Angels - Dr. Hunter S. Thompson
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test - Tom Wolfe
Fear and Loathing On The Campaign Trail '72 - Dr. HST
Hells Angels (The Life and Times Of Sonny Barger and The Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club) - Ralph "Sonny" Barger
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien (The Lord Of The Rings books are drawn out and have a habbit to suck very badly)
The Dark Tower Series - Stephen King
The Hitchhiker's Guide Series - Douglas Adams (read em years ago before they were cool :smile:)
SO, what should I add to the collection people?  :evil:

The World Is As You Dream It by John Perkins

Plants of the Gods by Richard Evan Schultes, Albert Hoffman & Christian Ratsch is a good book to have on hand.

that was actually my least favourite Rushdie book (albeit his most infamous one!). I'd recommend Grimus (his first book, very weird), Midnights Children (a freaking epic, but great), and the Jaguar Smiles (non-fiction about his living in Nicaragua during the contra times) as three interesting places to start in the Rushdie library.

but do you just want entheogenic books, or good books in general?

In terms of authors that never really go wrong - Herman Hesse, Kerouac, Aldous Huxley (read Island, not Brave New World!), Charles Bukowski (his novels are freaking hillarious!), Hemmingway (you'll either hate him or love him), ahh the list goes on and on and on... i need to finish getting stoned and get to work, but i'll post more later!

Franny & Zooey - JD Salinger
Bluebeard - Kurt Vonnegut (just about everything by him anyway)
Electric Kool Aid Acid Test - Tom Wolfe
High Priest - Timothy Leary
Breaking Open the Head - Daniel Pinchbeck (good but a bit overrated)
Empire State - Colin Bateman
