O.K.
So I have not been able to sleep properly for the past week or so, basically getting only 3-5 hours of sleep per night, and there is nothing I can do about it without resorting to sleep meds.

Since I now have all this extra time, I'd like to start reading a book and depending on how long this insomnia **** lasts, maybe more.

I am asking you for some good books that I should read.

Out of the books I have read these are the ones I have enjoyed the most:

The Road, 1984, Lord of the Flies, Halo: Fall of Reach and First Strike.

I am kind of picky, and prefer end of world stories.
Eat my dick cheese.

Im reading north and south right now
Its quite a girly plot, victorian classic love story etc....
but theres another side to it that goes on about the social change in britain/strikes/politics that is quite intresting if you are into that.
" Did You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away."

"Do they ? That must be why they're such a dominant global power."

John Dies at the End

Is that in referance to my post becuase there is a main charecter called John.
" Did You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away."

Its not an end of the world book, but im sure you would like anything writtten by Charles Bukowski also Hunter S Thompson. a really weird book (but great) is the wasp factory by iain banks

EDIT: my favourite books are the phillip pullman ''his dark materials' trilogy. absolutely incredible stuff and ends up with a war being waged upon heaven, it also has lots of underying meanings and naratives on the social state of the world beneath the great story

"Death Star" is a good book if you like Star Wars, and it ties in with what you seem to like.

Anything by Ann Coulter.

When you get to the end of it, you'll be convinced that the world is going to end based on how many people take her seriously. (No, seriously, I don't care for apocalyptic stuff usually. 1984 was good and so was Animal Farm, but the latter you should be able to read in a night.)

It took me a few seconds to remember that The Idiot is one of his writings, and that you weren't actually referring to Dostoevsky himself. I was about to majorly facepalm.
