Book recommendation

Straw Dogs by John Gray

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Straw-Dogs-T.../dp/1862075964

There's not a lot to do here, nobody does anything so I took up reading heavily again and saw this front page photography of this book and its summary and bought it.

I recommend you read it because it is audacious.

I read it in english (don't think it's translated) and it basically delivers a nice nihilistic punch to the enlightment follower's stomach.


Then you must quickly forget what you read because life has even lesser meaning than before.

But I enjoyed it's anti-enlightment, anti-scientific heretic way.

The heretic's book of the 21th century and it doesn't need to revert to love the earth hippiejibbyjobby

(and it's wrong. you have to say that for several self gradifying reasons as well)
