This Book's A Trip
« on: February 18, 2007, 01:16:54 PM »
Here kids, it's in Juvenile section of you library. This  a really wierd story about 4 teenage orphans in a future Orwellian world. It sums up all thought reform programs. It is really worth reading because in a fictional context it shows things clear and gives you a lot to think about. A whole lot.

House of Stairs by William Sleator

I read this when I was like 10. Good book. It's not red or green.. it's just the color of the light.

Although I just kept thinking how easy it would be to die...

Sci-Fi, but I'm fairly sure it was found at the Young Adult section of my local library.

I love Sleator. I read Interstellar Pig around the same time I read House of Stairs, and then found a decade later, to my intense delight, that he had written a sequel to Interstellar Pig that involved most of the aliens in the first book dying horribly.

I was way into Ray Bradbury (not to be confused with the penis-pump dude).
