      • Utterly absurd and insightful. Lots of humor, some controversial opinion, but really some valuable life lessons.

                Finished it a few days ago. Not what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it. He is the definition of someone who is comfortable in his own skin. He certainly has some irreverent and controversial (to some) opinions, but is also extremely respectful to his fellow man (unless of course they don't deserve his respect lol).

                Really touches on some valuable life lessons about essentially doing what you love in life and finding a way to get paid for it. Very relevant to me personally at this stage in life.

                • "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman, just picked it up last week… only a couple chapters in, but looks good. I've always liked Gaiman, but up until now have only read his shorts… none of his novels.

                    I love Gaiman; I've never ready any of his books but some of my all time favorite Doctor Who episodes were written by him. His best ever episode was called "The Doctor's Wife"

                      I'll admit, I didn't know he'd written for Dr. Who until I just looked it up. He's got his hands in pretty much everything though. I know with a lot of authors, I'll just buy their books the minute I see they have a new one. With him, I have to be careful, because he also writes a lot of children's books.... suppose I could always send it to one of my nieces if I happened to buy one of those.

                      • Not really a book more like a short story (3-5 pages) but I've reading The Lottery by Shirley Jackson repeatedly right now for a 3-5 page essay I have to write.

                          I remember that story, not the type of lottery I'd want to win. What type of essay are you writing?

                            It's a literary analysis paper. My main point is discussing blindly following tradition and my secondary point is discussing the fact that the village seemed so desitised to the ritual murders. I'm making the point that we should be careful to examine the way we were raised because a lot of people do things just because their parents did it not even thinking as to why.

                            • This was his last novel before he passed away. He wrote dozens of SW novels and lots of other sci-fi novels as well as fantasy.

                              • Allston passed away? I must have missed that. That sucks, he was one of my favorites.
