At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

Here we see Twain on a somewhat personal level. Penniless and having just lost his wife and one of his children, Twain turns to writing about God, Christianity, and the many curious natures of man. This collection was so controversial that his daughter prohibited its publication until 52 years after his death.

a series of unconnected stories. By themselves they are interesting, as a collection it didn't work for me I have to say. most of the stories were unfinished and an editor used his notes to complete.

Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species.

But this narrative is collapsing....

A very enlightening book. I found it to have a compelling point of view. I may be biased because it heavily supports what i already felt. I backs it up with facts. A good book to open one's mind with about Human Sexuallity and Sex, why we are who we are and why it's so difficult to be monogamous & remain passionate.
