I felt the need to search for this book after the first time that I watched Donnie Darko, the movie this book plays a HUGE role in and also my favorite. I've seen the movie quite a bit, 74 times exactly, and it's a very complicating movie but reading the book helped understand not only the movie but a lot of other things.

After watching the film Donnie Darko I had to check if the book the film is based around actually exists.
I found a couple entries that were supposed to be the "book", and it's so fascinating thinking of all these things involving different dimensions.

I love exploring the mind but this was something outside of my normal realm of questioning.

Definitely, recommend the film!

This is a fictional book referenced in the movie Donny Darko. The 12 chapters (approx. 850 words), each about a paragraph or so, consist mostly of nonsense. Full text of the book can be found here:
quite interesting
The most important book you will ever read. Or not.
