More on 'Requiried Reading"
    #960457 - 11/09/02 06:39 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I hope you do all visit one of my absolute must reads on a night likethis: S&P Forum. That not Standard and Poors, as I once thought....Its Spirituality and Philosophy Forum. (I believe it may have a 'new Name Now' - But pple who go, know its the same place. but, as usual, I digress.

I reccommend a 3 x weekly perusal of the Forum. I go a bit more, but its like a soap opera. which I say I hate, but just have no time to do silly shit anymore.
meh.

Well, Ive read all of Gaiman's novels. Neverwhere was my first, and is still my favorite, closely followed by American Gods. I just finished his new novel for young adults, Coraline in what sitting, and it was another excellent read. Right now im reading In Search of Captain Zero by Allan Weisbecker. Another suggestion of mine is Twelve by Nick McDonnell. Its a truly incredible book, and I recommend it to anyone, and i would make another great candidate for discussion.

Well, for all those out there who are heavily political, interested in fiction, and very interested in what I like to call "the human experience".....I'd recommend "ISHMAEL" by Daniel Quinn.......for those who don't know of the book, all I can say is that it's about a telepathic gorilla that describes what's fundamentally wrong with human civilization....need I say more?

I don't read much new fiction, cos I dislike a lot of modern authors. One "classic" book I've been wanting to read for ages is
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
But I don't know if that appeals to your guys tastes though.

One incredible recent book, though, is
The Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver.
Stunning book. I would like to read it again anyway.

Im gonna vote for any Gaiman novel, just because of the way his words flow. Ive never gotten tired of reading Gaiman. I have to space myself out a couple chapters at a time, so I dont end up staying all night reading. I'd love to go back and read Neverwhere, American Gods, Stardust, or Good Omens :cool:

I don't have much too contribute here, since I'm not a huge reader.  I enjoy reading, but most of choice of literature has been crap.  (you know the usual, Stephen King, stuff like that--nothing of real literary quality)  I'd like to expand my literary horizons, so anything you guys recommend, I'll give a shot.  You guys seem to know your shit. :smile:

the book that has had the most influence on my daily life would have to be "The Essentials of Meditation" by David Fontana. "A walk in the woods" by bill bryson is fuckin' hillarious, it's about a guy that hikes the Appalachian trail. fict. "the great and secret show" by clive barker is mostly about lucid dreaming but it's got sex, drugs and some pretty cool shit. I would definately reccomend "Ishmael" and "go ask alice" , "flowers for algernon",fict."animal dreams", "a separate reality" and the "electric kool-aid acid test", fict."the girl who loved tom gordon" are all well written journals. "out of body adventures" by rick stack is pretty mind blowing too...sorry to ramble but i'm wasted, go Rolling Rock! Whooou oh yeah i really liked "the Tao of Pooh" by benjamin hoff and everything by d.m.turner

namaste "A Walk in the Woods" is hillarious. I read it a couple of winters ago, its a good cure for cabin fever.
