Is that the book where the layout is like social media or email or something? I tried to read it but couldn't get into it.

Inside Alcatraz - Jim Quillen.

Finished reading The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist. It's a really interesting read and very much like The Handmaids Tale, which I love, similar vein of dystopian future vibe. The book has that perfect balance of stoicness, the positives and negativeness of the new world, the way people adapt to it, how some things are even better for some than before, whilst being worse off for that very same person. All mainly from the viewpoint of one lady, the narrator. Sums up and articulates emotions really well, without it being depressing. It's somewhat lighter/less heavy than THT, perhaps because it's not all doom and gloom depiction and the terror & unknown is not there so much. Everyone is already clued in on the process and have (more) time to come to terms with it. Personally, it's not as good as THT, but ranks higher than George Orwells 1984, which I also enjoyed.

The Biocentric Worldview by Ludwig Klages

a book so inherently against current society (in that it pretty much predicted current society) that even wikipedia blacklisted it. seriously. you can't find it on wikipedia, at all. it's not even referenced in the wiki for Biocentrism (ethics), of which this book is practically a guide to. you can't even find it on the authors wiki page.

it really makes you think, what don't they want people to know?
