Oh, yes....very much so.
And my brother...get this...lol Is doing his Ph.D in Theoretical Quantum cosmological physics...hahahaha
Makes my Nuclear physics degree seem like a piece of flash paper..lol
Anywyas, back to the topic at hand I always read everything in sight....specially science based books.
Orwell(1984) and Aldous Huxley(Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited), (great authors both of them), and "The Gulag" from a russian author. Also, IMO the best Gulag story every written by a political prisoner: "The life of Ivan Denisovitch", written by Alexander Sholzhenitzen.
There´s a bunch more, but I they don´t interest me as much.
But those are all in English, most of my library at home is in spanish. I´ve read it all like twice over....probably around 5000 books.
