The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

hoodwinked, September 1, 2011

This is a haunting mystery, a story of loss and regret, of life and introspection, both witty and gristly. The Wind Up Bird Chronicle serves caution to anyone who reads it, be wary of change but do not run from it and do not hide from it. You too can quit your job, make spaghetti for breakfast if you want to. Accepting that you both fully control and do not at all control your own life are important revelations. Only through self reflection you will find the truth in yourself and the world around you, and it is the only way to change. This story has many parts, and the characters are illusory, they are hallucinations, they are clever tricks in your mind and shadows of themselves. The mute have no need to speak. The confused only ask questions and the wind up bird always breaks the silence. Never overlook the simple answer, no matter how much you think it's truth would break you.

Cosmic Trigger Volume 1 Final Secret of The by Robert Anton Wilson
Cosmic Trigger Volume 1 Final Secret of The

hoodwinked, June 1, 2011

The 24 divisions of "Bob" take the reader through his adventure into "chapel perilous" to the furthest reaches of mind and space. Through careful examination and re-evaluation, he drops breadcrumbs leading the way though some of the most awe-inspiring and heartbreaking reality tunnels of his time here. He talks about his communication with Sirius, Timothy Leary, the 23 enigma, Illuminati conspiracies, Aleister Crowley, 8 circuit consciousness, synchronicity, and dogs that vanish in green puffs of smoke.

Cosmic Trigger is a trip to say the least.
Highly recommended.

The Morning of the Magicians by Louis Pauwels
The Morning of the Magicians

hoodwinked, April 13, 2011

Reading the morning of the magicians is like waking into a dream. The reality it presents takes everything that is generally accepted as fact and promptly smashes it into a thousand pieces with a cool scientific or pseudo-scientific logic that left me baffled and mumbling to myself. Best, or worst, of all it makes the kind of sense that the fertile paranoid mind just latches on to. Pauwels illustrates an alternate world history that feels more cohesive, if you are willing to accept a couple leaps in logic. Any student of the occult, mysticism, or right wing political science, should read this book.

Behold a Pale Horse by William Cooper
Behold a Pale Horse

hoodwinked, April 8, 2011

This is a very personal and chilling novel. The sobering manner that this book was written is startling. It reads like a deathbed confession and is just as interesting and important. William Cooper's (sometimes dark) humor and grave ungency makes for a great read for anyone, paraniod or otherwise.

Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings by Mark Twain
Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings

hoodwinked, March 24, 2011

A collection letters from satan to the angels about the peculiarities of man, hilariously blunt and witty. This rewrote everything I thought I knew about ole' sam clemens. I discovered this browsing the blue room, after taking a 13 year hiatus from reading his work, I can't praise this enough. You've always wanted to read this, you probably didn't know it, but it's the honest-to-god truth.
