    I dunno... seemed pretty eco-anarchist-y to me. How are you liking it?

    I agree... the diet and weightlifting plan alone are worth the price of admission.

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Oh, Mmhmm, your book reminded me of this one:



    I just picked it up on my kindle. Hoping to read it soon.

    Well, it supposedly is, but, given that one of our protagonists is described by his comrades as a sociopath, I don't know how much Abbey intended them to be representative of his views...

    It's well written, IMO, but half of it is people running away from the police. In a desert. Not exactly engaging, IMHO. But that's just me. At times, I admit it was a bit of a chore to go through, but I'm not exactly the greatest bookworm ever, so it might just be me being a halfwit.
