What's island about? (just in general, if it's not too spoilerish.)


I finished revolt in 2100 and Methusalah's children (a must-read if you like anything with Lazarus long in it, or enjoy heinlein's works), so I'm looking for another book...

I'll give you a hint...

It's Huxley's vision of a perfect society.

Nothing at the moment.

Then why post?

I'm reading Trainspotting, it's fantastic. After that Franz Kafka's The Trial or Filth.

Yes, I am aware of the irony.

I just finished(partially for school) reading about a Finnish family moving into an apartment building I can almost see from my room. It's the seventies, they turn into alcoholics and almost die, and the young girl of the family gets scarred for life. Next I'm going to read "Once Were Warriors".

I'm gonna be happy.  :(

Bought Pratchett's Nation for the plane. However, considering how fast I usually get through his stuff I may have to buy something else for the way back.
