I'm glad to finally be able to tell people about these books I've read over the summer (for all of thoes who will soon be blogging with me). Heres a list of my last summers reads arranged my author:
The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey
Hayduke Lives by Edward Abbey
These are two linear books about a hob-job band of "enviromentalists" who are trying to rid the world of pesky damns and bridges. The reason for the quotation marks is because their ways of getting rid of these mega structors are not exactly enviromentally friendly. Its funny and has it's share of romance.
The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley
This book is more of a science/philosophy lesson than a book. However it still holds its place in my mind for one of the greatest books. Aldous was one of the leading researchers in the Peyote field. He induces himself with this substance and tries to explain the effects in terms that your normal Joe could understand. (The Doors got their name from this book...enough said)
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
This is a must read for everyone; woman, child, alien, alpha, beta, and of course, highschool student. It talks of the misfortunes of living in a utopia, where there is free love, but no children. Its definately a thinkers work.
Well I hope someone will read this and pick of one of these great works. There will be more to come, most definately, in due time.
