Need some good books to read, could be new or old, fiction, non-fiction, whatever, just a book I won't be able to put down until I'm finished.

I suggest Artemis Fowl. It may seem a bit childish, but its pretty good

Out of the Silent Planet by C S Lewis is a good place to start. It is the beginning of a trilogy, with Perelandra and That Hideous Strength.

If you like good hard scifi that's not too inaccessible in the language department try Ring by Stephen Baxter. Pretty much anything in the Xeelee sequence is fantastic. Vacuum Diagrams is a great place to start if you just like a collection of short stories.

The sword handle on the cover is shaped like a phallus. Pretty gay.

The novel is rather difficult to summarize, as several critics have noted (Bellour, Gerould, Hustvedt), since a large portion of it is devoted to the philosophical musings of Edison and the philosophical dialogues of Edison and Ewald on the nature of beauty, love, the soul, and being. As for what happens, the novel centers around the so-called "Wizard of Menlo Park," Thomas Alva Edison, (8) and his young friend and one-time benefactor Lord Celian Ewald. Ewald had once upon a time given Edison some money to fund a project, a gift for which Edison remains grateful. Ewald, however, has come to say farewell to Edison. He is about to blow his brains out because he has met the Ideal beauty, Alicia Clary. The problem for Ewald is that, while he finds Clary heart-wrenchingly beautiful and utterly irresistible, he finds her personality (and/or "soul") irredeemably corrupted by materialism, positivism, and above all "Reason." If only Alicia Clary existed without her present soul, he could continue to live. Upon hearing Ewald's tale, Edison makes him an offer. If Ewald will forestall killing himself for three weeks, Edison vows that he will present to Ewald a mechanical replica of Clary (which he calls an "android" and, occasionally, an automaton"), (9) indistinguishable from the "original," but without her troublesome personality. (10) Edison had already constructed the android, but he will now engage in the process of making android, named Hadaly Habal, into a copy of Alicia Clary. True to his word, Edison presents the new Alicia, "Tomorrow's Eve" (98) and fools him in the process.

What are your thoughts on The Fall by Albert Camus?

Here are some resources on it I would like to share with you:

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQCsSuj3LgA (rare BBC documentary)
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYuEwEhOzRs (a lecture about The Plague and The Fall. He starts talking about The Fall about halfway through.)
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7UiShv7a8A (continuation of the previous lecture, entirely dedicated to The Fall.)
