I don't remember why I read this book. These things slip into my reading list somehow (for example I actually read "The Celestine Prophesy" when it was left in my mailbox). It was touching in the way of a made for TV Hallmark Special. Yes, we're all...more

On the Road by Jack Kerouac
" I've read this book several times and I'm still not uber-impressed. As a major fan of the work of the artists of the Beat Generation, I expected a world of genius from "On the Road," which was supposedly the Generation's anthem. And while there ar... " Read more of this review »

In full disclosure I will admit up front that I wrote and self-published this book. It was at a time when I was on the verge of giving up poetry forever because I couldn't write like all the "famous" poets and was having no luck getting published. Bu...more

Read it when you're young! You will never have the chance to enjoy it as much as you will when you're 16 years old. When you get older, read Franny and Zoey.

Philip Pullman
“I think it's perfectly possible to explain how the universe came about without bringing God into it, but I don't know everything, and there may well be a God somewhere, hiding away. Actually, if he is keeping out of sight, it's because he's ashamed of his followers and all the cruelty and ignorance they're responsible for promoting in his name. If I were him, I'd want nothing to do with them.”
Philip Pullman
