    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"

    Well, I wouldnít go quite that far, but itís probably my favorite series; unfortunately with Martinís involvement in the HBO production and everything else, it looks like a long wait for the next book. Screw the HBO series, I want him to finish the books.

    Those books spurred my imagination.
    I tried to find Narnia when I was a kid, searching in closets, the attic, the basement...

    As for Narnia being Satanic, how do you even begin to respond to something like that?

    The World According to Garp by John Irving

    Wonder Boys by Micheal Chabon

    I read both of these novels during the same summer. Both opened up a world of literature that I never new about. Wonder Boys, in particular, doesn't have a false note or a boring paragraph in it.

    I can't remember if I have posted in this thread yet, but it's a good one!

    For me the big ones I can think of right now are:
    The Catcher in the Rye - JD Salinger
    The Racial Contract - Charles Mills
    The Mists of Avalon - Marion Zimmer Bradley

    Also many scholarly articles.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
