I joined this website today, and I went around looking for people who were reading books by Daniel Quinn. And I found NONE, I am astonished. He is legendary. I've read 1 and 3/4ths of his books. And it's a goal of mine to read all of his books by the end of the year. His first book I read, Ishmael, blew me out of the water. Inviting me to think about things I've never thought of. If your interested, I find it a waste to explaining what the book is about here, but if your interested in informational/exploring/almost sci-fi novels go to amazon.com and type in Daniel Quinn, Ishmael, or The Holy. Things that will teach you about life, and explore the realm of possibilities. He teaches you, without saying so, about fate, signs, and ...life. So much to explain, and I don't want to babble on. Daniel Quinn. Go check him out.
