i've only read ender's game and speaker for the dead so far... but i personally thought that speaker for the dead was WAYY better, and quite possibly my favorite (fictional) book ever.

In terms of comfortable living, it's win. In terms of basically everything else, it's fail.

concentration is probably going to be something in modern ontology i.e. heidegger and the ethics thereof. but my interest really move towards heidegger/buddhism comparison, just east/west comparison in general. the similarities are vast and somewhat scary.

So, I just finished Diary by Chuck Palahniuk. Maybe I'm just a retard, but this book left me really confused, as if there were a lot of unanswered dead ends. Anyone read this?

It's about expansion of humanity into the stars by adapting people to live in different environments.

It's actually 4 novellas collected in one book and it's really good and thought provoking.

I'm reading The Fountain Head.

I barely read so I'll abstain from judging for now.

Glad to see I'm not alone haha. I had to read about ten pages of Kant and sum them up for a philosophy class. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to write 20 pages or 2 paragraphs.
