Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
Rate this book
Clear rating
what always amazes me about truly brilliant sci/fi is not the fact that I feel like an uber-geek reading it, but the sheer prescientness (I know, I know, not a word- but it feels right) of some of the predictions and attitudes. I'm a huge fan of Blad...more

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Oh goodness, this is a before and after book isn't it? Before you realize how complicated things can get and have no idea that you can possibly lose your innocence and just how much the world hurts.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Ah, The Little Prince. It's hard not to think of the story of The Little Prince without wondering where Exupery might have ended up. Sort of like David Bowie's The Man Who Fell to Earth- but I digress. The lessons are bittersweet, don't try to tame p...more

I can't even imagine the tremendous pressure of being the famous offspring of a famous author, but Ted Heller has a wicked and black sense of humor in the workplace. While a lot didn't work for me, it really was a book that stuck with me after the fa...more

Before it became incredibly chic to write interwoven tales of magic realism and family sagas, Allende was deftly weaving her own histories while including her riveting and terrifying take on the political climate without seeming at all preachy . Whil...more

The Courage To Start by John Bingham
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'm not a runner, though I dream of being one. In fact I'm fairly klutzy and mostly uncoordinated and know that if I ran the pavement of NYC would do a number on my knees, and yet I adore a book on running. Bingham applies his philosophy to running o...more

And a Bottle of Rum by Wayne Curtis
Rate this book
Clear rating
Hmmm. I don't think the fact that I like Wayne Curtis as a person colored the fact that I loved his book. For me it was the incredible detail that made this book come to life- it was witty, the history was meticulously researched and I was left with...more

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Rate this book
Clear rating
A masterpiece. I went through an intense Vonnegut phase in my late teens, it was cured however, when I met the man himself. That said, Vonnegut had a gift for the absurd that many emulate but can't quite emulate.
