**I expect everyone who reads this to take it into full consideration!!**
Seriously, if you're into Science fiction or, just philosophy or anything! look for the author: PHILIP K DICK.
He has written many short stories and books with movie adaptations. He is the one acclaimed for: MINORITY REPORT, BLADE RUNNER, and others i can't think of right now (cause im stoned).
However the book I will speak of today is THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE.
Please listen! Just thinking of the book is putting me in a state of nostalgia and wonderment. The book is an awesome read that steps in the lives of 5 or more characters as they seek refuge in a Germany and Japan controlled U.S.A.
Yes, you heard that right. Had Germany and Japan succeed in WWII. The horrors of the extention of the third reich as well as the humor of the culture clash of U.S. and Asian customs (which is what it seems like now "i.e. yugioh").
ALSO, the philisophical and theoretical discussions entailed in that book are enough to make George Bush's head explode. I admit it is a hard read, but its the book that make you sit and think for hours after you've finished reading.
I know it's hard to just go out and buy a book but I advise anyone who loves to read and likes a challenging book to definately check this baby out.
