Week 5 book rew.

The Man in the High Castle was a great book. I read it in 2 days. SWB already rew. the book and all I could add, was that while I enjoyed reading it on a relaxing, get lost in a book level, it also moved me to think about politcal systems and theory. In short I started questioning a lot of assumptions I have made about things like socialism, facism etc. and how they look today. I will not be able to explain it well, which is why I need to continue in my quest to become well educated. For anyone who likes history with science fiction thrown in, this is a good book to pick up. There was some language but it wasn't unmanageable. (For those of you who are concerned about that kind of thing.)
