Reviews of books I’ve read.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test; Should I have been high while reading this?

The answer is a resounding yes. Because this is one of those things that you feel like you’ll never really fully understand unless you experience it yourself. It’s like reading a book about the making of The Wizard of Oz

Lord of the Flies; the Conch is a Lie.
