This is an incredible and imaginative look into the mind of a child, although I must profess that the assumption, that of a child having complex cognitive thinking is ambigous at best.

Mr. Dick Cheney. Peak Oil and the Final Count Down

"Oil remains fundamentally a government business...the Middle East with two thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies" - Mr. Dick Cheney. London Institute of Petroleum Autumn lunch in 1999 when he was Chairman of Halliburton.

Well Dick, looks like you got the big prize after all!

its sad that Philip K. Dick couldnt live long enough to see his success.
Yeah, it's also sad that noone has made a quality movie adaptation of one of his novels since Blade Runner.

Here's a few more suggestions

Ray Bradbury - Fahrenheit 451
Aldous Huxley - Brave New World
Jack Kerouac - Dharma Bums
Ursula K. Leguin - The Lathe of Heaven
Joesph Heller - Catch 22
George Orwell - Animal Farm
Joy Kogawa - Obasan
H.G. Wells - The Time Machine
Eugene O'Neil - Long Days Journey Into Night
Chester Himes - If He Hollers Let Him Go
Fyodor Dostoyevsky - Notes From The Underground

Just some that stick out in my mind from over past couple years.

All fucking Classic. I might add the catcher in the rye, anything by JRR Tolkien or Vonnegut, Gullivers Travels, Hamlet, Robinson Crusoe, Moby Dick, Treasure Island, 1984, and since the movie is out read The Illiad.
