Doing the funny books helps one take a break from the serious ones and allows you to have a good laugh, like Douglas Adams series Hitchhiker's Guide
To The Galaxy.
Something silly, just to get that chuckle going. Something everyone needs here and there.
Hitchhikers is most certainly just there to make one grin (heck, we have two staff members here who's usernames are from the books, Zaphod and
The Stainless Steel Rat series by Harrison are pretty much the same, just something silly to be silly, but enjoyable at the same time. Harrison also
wrote some serious stuff too, like Make Room! Make Room! which was the basis for the movie Soylent Green.
Going back to serious books, with a harder look at science, you might also give some of James P. Hogan's books a try. His Inherit The Stars series was
pretty good (Imagine we go to the Moon, exploring, and find a dead human in a space suit there.......from over a hundred thousand years ago).
Thrice Upon A Time was another good one by him: imagine having a computer that is able to send messages back in time to that same computer. Future
messages coming in....because of world ending events that will be happening.
I read a lot as a kid and teen since I grew up over seas in other countries where TV was watching someone else talk in a language I didn't understand,
heh. So I read a lot, and SciFi was my favorite.
