Book: Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
"I read somewhere that human beings are genetically predisposed to record history. We believe it will keep us from doing stupid things in the future. But even though we dutifully archived elaborate records of everything we've done, we always managed to keep on doing dumber and dumber shit."Friday 56:
"The black thing in the globe pulsed and twitched like a beating heart. It seemed to become more animated the longer we stared at it. It was almost like a gelatinous cauliflower. Here and there on its velvet surface, a mound would rise up, like a mosquito bite, a black pimple, and then burst open at its peak."My thoughts:
Well, this book should be fun, basing my judgement on these two quotes.
