I'm a GenX autistic person with a degree in Physics. I tend to read various books depending on my mood. Some returning topics tend to be Philosophy, Science, Writing, Art, and Mathematics for non-fiction books. For fiction, I enjoy Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Literary books. Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams are they're own beasts and I love both of them. I tend to forget most of what I read as soon as I'm done so it's hard to do reviews, but sometimes I try to give an opinion on them.

Too much religious superstition and platitudes for my taste. If any good comes out of its reading it is that you should always follow your dreams. There is nothing that separates you from fill-in-the-blank superstars/legends. Nothing.
