My sister adores that book / series of books, whatever it is.
I would urge you to read them. They are a trilogy of books written by a man named Philip Pullman. They are a soaring achievement of imagination while remaining grounded in endearing characters.
Man, I sound fruity sometimes.

I'm saving A Thousand Splendid Suns to read over winter break and I'm quite excited about it. I've heard many good things about that one.

Conan O'Brian's books are so silly LAWLZERS!
But seriously, that is a good book. It is a perfect mix between the events he witnessed and the torment he suffered in Vietnam. Also I like the part when the stoner got his head blown off.
If you like the ###### you posted I would also suggest Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! (Adventures of a Curious Character) a biography as told by Ralph Leighton.
Novel wise I like 1984 (who doesn't), A Clockwork Orange (IT HAZ A CHAPTER THE MOVIE DIDN'T PORTRAY! LULZ!), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (while the movie is good I think the book is better because I really love the "you want some heroin?!" scene; the book described it in great detail while the movie briefly touched on), Fran Lebowitz's work may be dated but it is still funny, for example Social Studies. Finally, only because he recently passed I reread Michael Crichton's book Prey. Sci fi isn't a genra I normally don't enjoy but his creativity mixed with scientific explanation is well worth it.

###### I can't believe woggie reads. He must have got those reviews online or something!
No ###### you, my reading comprehension is well above average (86% better than my graduation class) however my writing skills are only in the top 58%. And I have always loved to write, this is only on example of my contracting being. The other is that I also scored in the top 95% in science while also scoring in the top 76% in math. I love science and am horrid in math. I love reading and writing but awful in expressing myself. My IQ may be above average (no it isn't) but I just have trouble showing it.
RED = your collective thoughts.

I'm not big on it.
You should read The Rum Diaries.

That is because you are too busy conforming.
As for the Rum Diaries, I can say I have herd of it but I have not gotten around to reading it. Hunter S. is an odd fellow.
