i Like to nominate the book, Anthem by Ayn Rand.
its about 100 pages and a easy read acordding to this reader [Ryan Solero]

This book bascially explains the author's philosophy about the future of mankind. Its explains of a world with no happiness or induvidualism. Everybody is the same and everyone is brothers. Well, the main theme of the story is that one man dares to be different in a world of no induvidualism. This causes some serious complications among in this lifeless society and almost leads to his death. What the author was trying to prove withthis story is that if things keep going the way they do, we might possibly have a society like this in the future. This was a really great book to read. Its very easy reading, but it still keeps you interested and thinking the entire time. You find yourself the whole time realizing how obsurd the whole situation in the story. One particular aspect I liked about the story was, instead of using induvidualistic words such as I, me, him, her, or my, they were brought up using words such as,We, ours, them they. Even if they were talking about themselves, they would use those words. Its actually very confusing and it may take a while to get accustomed to use of those words. Note: Remember, we = I. Think of it that way and it will help you.

so for a first read, this book is an awesome candidate =]

its short n it has a lot to discuss abt.
