Catch-22 (Vintage Classics)
2.  Catch-22 (Vintage Classics) by Joseph Heller

Beyond Fate (Massey Lectures Series)
4.  Beyond Fate (Massey Lectures Series) by Margaret Visser
The list author says:
  "No other book tackles the problem of morality, honour and shame as well as this whilst providing a sturdy intellectual defence of Christianity. Packs a lot of punch for its 180 or so pages."
12.04   Used & New from: 0.01

Island
5.  Island by Aldous Huxley
The list author says:
  "Huxley's brilliant philosophical novel describes a Utopian society threatened by external consumerism and delves into the role of religion rather than dogma in our lives. Highly recommended."
6.29   Used & New from: 1.50
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance: 25th Anniversary Edition
6.  Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance: 25th Anniversary Edition by Robert Pirsig
The list author says:
  "Half novel, half philosophical exploration of many topics, particularly the nature of 'quality'. What makes a good song good? Very readable. It's not too much to do with Zen, or motobike maintenence."
6.99   Used & New from: 0.01
