Hitchhikers....  Reply with quote  

Hell yes....Hitchhiker's is an amazing book. Have you ever seen the movie...it's mad cheesy, from the BBC I think. Entertaining, though obviously nowhere near as great as the book.

Last summer I read this awesome book on consciousness called "The User Illusion" by Torr Norretranders. It's not fiction, but it reads very nicely and it will alter all your previous notions of reality and set your cats on fire and all of that if you read it, guaranteed. If you're interested in consciousness studies, I dont know. Are you a rapper? I'm a mad scientist myself.

Ive been meaning to read a book I have called "Why I am not a Christian". Although it wont change my life because I already know why I am not a christian, but I hope it makes things clearer.

The first book I ever read that I really liked was "Hatchet" by Gary Paulson. It's what I suppose would be considered "young-adult" fiction. It really opened me up to books and reading/writing, something that changed my life in a pretty big way.

I'm gonna have to go with MessiahCarey and say that The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy changed my outlook on our existence on this planet and universe.
