Top 10 Most Recommended Books from Andrew Schwab

Andrew Schwab of Project 86 was nice enough to do a few Top 10 lists for IVM. They will be released over the next week or so as we continue to support the band’s new album, Wait For The Siren, which is available now. Check out the list below.

[Previous post can be found here]

“Fear and Trembling” – See Soren Kierkegaard [in previous post].

“Mere Christianity” – See CS Lewis [in previous post].

“Brave New World” – My favorite of the dystopian novels. It’s more subtle than the others, and somehow, more believable.

“Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” – The book that the movie Blade Runner was based upon. Fantastic story.

“Cash” – Autobiography of Johnny Cash. ‘Nough said.

“Traveling Mercies” – See Anne Lamott [in previous post].

“The War of Art” – A book for any creative person…graphic novelists, musicians, writers, baristas.

“Fight Club” – Look past the nihilism and see that Tyler Durden is the guy we ALL want to be because so many of our dads weren’t.

“The Screwtape Letters” – I can only imagine what Clive went through to write this work. He probably needed a shower that lasted a year.

“The Great Gatsby” – The tragedy of Gatsby is the failure of the American Dream to satisfy our souls.

    Definitely agree with “Fight Club” and “The Great Gatsby”. “Brave New World” is good, but “1984″ is much better, in my opinion. “1984″ is actually my favourite novel of all time, and I don’t bestow that distinction lightly.

  2. Dean says:

    i love to read, good to know one of my favorite singer/songwriters has great taste!

  3. metalhunter says:

    The Great Gatsby is a great read and short too. If you havn’t read it, do it, its like less than 150 pages. Mere Christianity is something I’ve been meaning to get my hands on.

  4. Lucas says:

    I think every Christian should read The Screwtape Letters, although The Great Divorce is my favorite book of all time. Mere Christianity is absolutely fantastic as well, but maybe a little less gripping. C.S. Lewis is just incredible!

  5. I’m into this list, if only he would leave out anything to do with Johnny Cash or one-trick Palahniuk.

  6. John says:

    Why would you cut out Johnny Cash? The man is a legend.
