Do you remember finding these starfish along the beach? Now that you have the right paraphernalia with you loaded in the trunk (no pipes or open containers) you are ready to head out on a starfish adventure. What are you bringing to read after you have basked in the sun after that swim?
Would it be A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, something involved and brain teasing or would it be this? Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons will relieve your anxieties quickly when you know it can be found on the Time’s List of the 100 Best Novels. The Time’s List has been published since 1923, and that means really something. Now you are up there with George Orwell’s 1984.
You could also go for number 83 on that list, Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, most likely not with this cult original cover sold at less than a dollar.
