This humble ebook bundle is a matter of too little or too late for bibliophiles.
Really? So any book-lover will have got/read most of the things here? I consider myself a reasonably avid reader and have no interest in any of these books - and I read a fairly varied range of genres and subjects (see my profile at http://www.shelfari.com/irglover). I realise that one data point isn't statistically significant, but niether is a sweeping generalisation.
I'm surprised that no-one responded to this more Swiftly.
I would mod ths funny if I had the points (though I do hope it is a literary joke and not a comment in support of the GP's idea)
Racism, censorship, homophobia, totalitarianism, anarchy, genocide, etc...these are really hard things to discuss with a group of high-school kids
For that reason I would add 'A Scanner Darkly' by Philip k. Dick. Themes related to drugs and identity are very relevant to today's teenagers. The book is rooted in the present, so is recognisable and there is little moralising. It is being told by someone who lived through and survived drug abuse and the final dedication to friends that didn't survive is particularly moving.
