I’ve talked about classics a whole lot on the blog over the last year – it is no secret that I love them. When I was looking at past posts, I realized my classic sci-fi picks were severely lacking, so today I intend to fix.
Sci-fi was always readily available in my house, but mostly the pulpy thriller kind. I’m talking Crichton and Koontz for days. When I started getting serious about reading in school, I noticed how few sci-fi books there were, and the ones that were assigned were the reading equivalent eating your broccoli. These five though, they’re delicious and literary, and simply must reads if you are into the sciency stuff.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
I, Robot by Isaac Asimov
