Just finished reading Ubik. By Philip K. Dick
awesome read would highly
rĕkˌə-mĕnd it for any fan of sci fi or just any one looking for a great read.
finished in a day, just couldn't put it down.

Ubik is a 1969 science fiction novel by American writer Philip K. Dick. It is one of Dick's most acclaimed novels. In 2009, it was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923.

If anyone has any other books they would recommend are worth a read please tell.

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.”
― Philip K. Dick

Stoner - John Williams

A book about an English professor and the day-to-day dread found in his life, and everyone's.
One of the most depressing book I've touched.
It is as much touching as it is mundane, an examination on futility and disappointment.
But also in the glimpses of happiness that incur on us.
Overall, a must read.

A contemporary new one great classic:
9780525520610_custom-97b5f707c8a1a624920942f32c48f4b5d5be221d.jpg

Desierto Sonoro [Lost Children Archive], Valeria Luiselli’s third novel, combines the best of two great literary traditions: travel and exodus. The novel shuffles over the pavement and crosses desert horizons, it stops at highway motels and penetrates its character’s most intimate territories, offering a precise series of snapshots that portray the infinite layers in the geographic, auditory, political, and spiritual landscape that makes up contemporary reality. A moving, necessary story that shows the frailty in which family bonds are defined, questions the way we document our existence and pass our stories from one generation to the next, and wonders what it means to be human in a world increasingly devoid of humanity.


And for the sake of keep scifi goin, an old one great classic:

Lewis wrote Out of the Silent Planet during 1937 after a conversation with J. R. R. Tolkien in which both men lamented the state of contemporary fiction. They agreed that Lewis would write a space travel story and Tolkien would write a time travel story. In fact, Tolkien never completed his story, while Lewis went on to compose two others over the war years in Britain. These are now referred to as the Cosmic or Space Trilogy.
