    REAL sci fi?
    how much real could it be than that?
    just because its not like 2001?

    SCifi dunn hafta be serious, or drama or just action oriented
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

      Fraudia bhai jaan

      I mean what is called "HARD" sci-fi--that is sci-fi grounded in real science...

          Khurram have u read Hemingway's "Sun Also Rises"....i like that one...

          Austin...hmmm...is too zanana ....angrezi ki bushra rehman or salma kanwali'll its better to watch 2 hr movie based on her novels than reading those lengthy novels

          Hugo's...Les miserables is a very good choice....i still have to watch the show...may be one of these days....


          X-Factor...ofcourse ....Daastan-e-Amir Hamza
          is a must read....i luved that character "Ummro Ayyaar"...and his "ZaNbeel"....

                Hey one more thing
                These things are hard to explain
                For some it seems strange... to swallow
                The frontier of our minds
                Is the last place we find
                But maybe the first place we should go

                  I haven't read illusions yet...but just ordered it
                  Naik,

                  Jonathan Livingston Seagull is a simple book with a simple message put in a very innovative way. that said, i dont find it to be a very deep or philosophical read, maybe good for one reading, maybe two..after that, its just too dry.
                  Simple ain't easy.

                    Hmm....I liked the book...but only read it twice.

                    I do recommend it every chance I get though.

                    I haven't read Illusions. The person that told me to read Seagull said Illusions wasn't as good so I didn't bother.

                    I picked up Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance but haven't had the time to start it yet. Perhaps I should find it first.......

                      abay, apna size dekho aur apni baateiN dekho:-P...
                      "i dont find it to be very deep or philosophical"...

                      bava tum ko kitni depth chaiay?? goDay goDay ya moonDay moonDay???per dhyaan rahe kahiN doob na jaomeri manoo to stick wid this giTay giTay deep book....jeans ko ooper fold kiay bina hi pani meiN se guzar jaoaqalmandi yahi hei

                      ok ok lemme be serioustry meiN kiya harj hei...

                      hmmm kher i read this book almost a yr ago after Muzna has recommended it here on the forum(read it twice)....i was fascinated by the book at the time(now i wonder why)...i bought 2 more copies one for my niece(6 yrs old) and one for my nephew(9 yrs old). My niece just turned 7 last week and she still thinks that its the best book she have ever read, even better than "Secret Garden"...which is 2nd bestMy nephew doesn't like it anymore....

                      kher i read the book for the third time couple of weeks ago and since then i am wondering that why i liked this book so much a yr ago
                      The book has nothing to offer to a mature adult reader...u r right, its a very simple book carrying a very simple message, "You can do anything u want, u can achieve anything u want, if u try hard enuff"...
                      and there is nothing philosophic about that message either....but i'll still say that it is a good book for kids....especially for teenagers

                      ...and for u queery, i'll recommend "Sidhartha" by Herman Hesse....jao bava moonDay moonDay pani meiN chubiyaaN maro:-P per dhyaan se

                            We should care for each other more than we care for ideas, or else we will end up killing each other.
