a surfer dude's summer reading:

Sup guys! I'm still at Biola with my wacko relatives having a family reunion, drinking like five sodas a day. There's not a whole lot to do, so that's why I'm blogging so much. It's like one hundred degrees outside. Anyway, I decided to write a list of my summer reading recommendations (not that anyone cares). Here we go:

Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo: Incredible, incredible book. Most of you know what it's about, so I won't explain it. Give it a try before you dismiss it as retarded. It'll change your perspective on war forever. And don't listen to anything Mikey says about it 'cause he didn't even read the whole thing and he's unwilling to admit that it totally destroys all his pro-war arguments. :)

No Country For Old Men by Cyrus McCormack: A really compelling and disturbing tale of the consequences that assail a society which has forsaken morality. McCormack writes with simplistic force, creating a tale that is all the more powerful for its everyday style. It's pretty violent and kinda scary, so be careful.

C.S. Lewis' space trilogy: A really interesting sci-fi trilogy by the master of English fiction. The first installment is Out of the Silent Planet, followed by Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. They can get kinda weird, but they're worth the read.

Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson: Read this. It'll change your life. Forever.

Well, gotta go. I'm gonna go surfing this week! California waves rock!!!!!!!!

God Bless,
