The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This is the only book that never ceases to make me laugh out loud every time I pick it up. The cosmos should always have at least one Douglas Adams at all times. My favorite bit -- the SEP, or Someone Else's Problem. A giant space ship lands in the middle of a famous cricket pitch but the crowd doesn't see it because it's an SEP and people don't see SEPs. And Marvin. And the Restaurant at the End …

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
OK, I finally read it. It is occasionally barely funny but mostly just dumb. It is like Harry Potter in that I am forced to wonder how this has become such a big deal. I am not reading any more of the series.      But I think I should recommend something better that no one ever heard of:      Trample an Empire Down by Mack Reynolds.      …

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
A good fast, fun read. I tend to reread Hitchhiker's every 5 years or so and recommend it as a gateway novel for people who like wacky comedy who might develop an interest in SF.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The written work is priceless, the BBC mini-series version is adequate and amusing (if somewhat dated). The newer film is my least favorite of the versions out there right now. While amusing, it felt more like a cardboard cutout of The Guide.

Classic sci-fi satire! Highly recommended! It gets funnier each time I re-read it.

The Hour I First Believed
   The Hour I First Believed is a great, big, philosophical saga of a novel, told by one Caelum Quirk, a man who hasn't so much as lost his way as never found it in the first place. As the story opens, he's living in Littleton, CO with his third wife, Maureen, and they both work at Columbine HS. The first third of the book leads up to the Columbine massacre, which changes Caelum's …

Ishmael
A highly recommended book that helps the reader to better understand modern human psychology. The method in which this message is developed is a bit strange at first, but becomes important as the novel goes on. A book that really changed the way I think about the world!

The Giver Lois Lowry
The Giver---a world full of nothingness. Think about moderating everything interesting, dangerous and stimulating...how many other books have this theme? But this one has a soft, personal perspective.

This will make you look at white mice and towels in an entirely new way. And above all..DON'T PANIC!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
A very fun read! Had me laughing the entire time. Just a random, quirky book.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This book has the spirit of Monty Python in its writing (the author worked with the comedy troupe later on in their years together). If you like Flying Circus and love science fiction then you should definitely pick up a copy. The humor is wry, witty, and completely out of this world (lame pun I know).
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This book is exhaustingly hilarious, all of them are. I picked up the combined edition of however many Hitchhiker books there are and just started reading. There was hardly a page that I wouldn't laugh out loud. The pace and cleverness of this book are beyond anything else I've read. The only problem is that I do not recommend reading them all in a row. After one book, my brain was exhausted …

Very quirky but extremely readable. Read the entire series and you will not regret it.

Annie Dillard
Dillard is an amazing writer, and is able to convey her experiences with nature so well. I love all of her books, she makes me want to go outside and explore.

Absolutely hilarious... that's really all I can say. You're not a person unless you laugh at this book.

World According To Garp
John Irving is the rare breed of a writer who began with some pretty good success critically.  His earliest works such as Setting Free the Bears, The 158 Pound Marriage and The Water Method Man actually opened up to critical success.  All of those books didn't exactly sell very well, however.  Rather they were quite unknown.  In 1978, John Irving published The World According …

Siddhartha
I just finished this book. It is great, I can relate to the main character's search for his own way in life. I really like it, but the very end, like all Hesse's books was a bit mysterious.

Grayson by Lynne Cox
A short, yet extremely satisfying read. The author writes about her experience swimming in the ocean and encountering a lost baby whale. There is a powerful  heart connection between the two swimmers, and I found the depth of the language and descriptions used to be very meaningful and deep. Throughout life we encounter connections with animals and I think this book is a wonderful example of …

This is one of those books you will remember for the rest of your life. I think I read it in fourth grade
