Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

You know what I want to read?

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by the commitment I made to Infinite Jest. The writing and detail of Wallace's story are extraordinary, so much so that my brain hurts and I can only take it in small doses. And right now what I want is a book, a little dystopic apocalyptic non-fiction, that I can tear through without much thought. Something that will simultaneously creep me out and amuse me. Stephen King's latest, Under the Dome, maybe? Nah. I will get to that eventually, even though a friend, a King fan with similar book tastes, panned it. Margaret Atwood's The Year of the Flood? Defintely, just not yet. I may want to read Oryx and Crake again first.

I'm thinking Tim La Haye's Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days.

My library will definitely have multiple copies.

You've got a 16 book commitment ahead of you if you go with the Left Behind series. I'd go with the equally creepy and hysterical Christ Clone Trilogy.

It's got Thetans, pseudo-science with a little of The Stand and The Omen thrown in.

It's whack-a-doo and no thinking required.
