"From the Dust Returned" by Ray Bradbury and "Radio Free Albumuth" by Philip k. Dick, andi am trying to get a copy of "Breakfast of Champions" but my local library doesn't have it :(

Have you tried asking the librarian if he/she can get the book from one of the other libraries in the county? From what I understand, most library systems are equipped to do that these days. In my county, it usually only takes a couple of days to get whateve book I request if they have it.

JARHEAD: A Marine's Chronicle of the Gulf War
and Other Battles
by Anthony Swofford

The following review is fairly accurate and pasted here mostly because I'm too lazy to write one myself:

Quote:

"In Jarhead, Anthony Swofford has written a powerful and riveting memoir of his life, particularly his involvement as a Marine during the first Persian Gulf war. He recounts his experiences in the Marine culture, the blood lust, the alternating boredom and terror, and the absurd moments including wearing camouflage uniforms because their desert ones hadn't arrived yet. He watched the burning wells rain oil on the desert and the desecration of Iraqi corpses. At the same time he became aware that becoming a man involved more than becoming a soldier. The New York Times says, "By turns profane and lyrical, swaggering and ruminative, Jarhead -- referring to the marines' 'high-and-tight' haircuts, which make their heads look like jars -- is not only the most powerful memoir to emerge thus far from the last gulf war, but also a searing contribution to the literature of combat."

people actually go and get books signed still....

no new writers are worth the effort in my opinion but im an oldschool sci-fi/post apoc person.

im reading Sixth Column by Robert A. Heinlein, The Long Tomorrow by Leigh Brackett and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller.

You should read more fiction, like for you, Planned Pregnancy.

that book was absolutely terrible.

summed up "look at me, im a book about drug use who is over sensationalized by media and retarded teenages alike".

Big McLargehuge Jun 30th, 2004 03:08 AM

I like it, sensationalism aside.

and it is not my usual cup of tea, i tend to lean towards good science fiction (ie Bradbury, Sturgeon, Dick) and "literature".

Big McLargehuge Jul 1st, 2004 09:02 PM
