Yeah, this community's been pretty quiet lately, but here I am looking for something to read and maybe you can help.

I'm in the midst of a brutal week of final exams, after which I will be going on a nice long train trip to decompress. I'm looking for a couple of good, short books to read. I'd like to get a few more banned books under my belt, so maybe you can suggest something.

I've read most of the standards: Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse Five, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, etc. But something else along those lines that isn't going to necessarily, you know, implode my brain, would be nice. Looking for something around 200 pages.

Sorry this is a little disjointed. Finals week has reduced me to a quivering mass of congealed black coffee and soggy muffins.

SERENITY NOW!!! (I need a TV.)

I don't think it was well known enough to be banned (though with its plot, it would stand a good chance), but I highly recommend Vurt by Jeff Noon. It fits in nicely with the ones you mentioned above.

Thanks for the tip! I'll see if I can pick that up a library.
