The UC Berkeley Summer Reading List is an annual compilation of recommended (though not required) readings suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as a welcome to incoming freshmen and transfer students.
“The Sirens of Titan is a good “firsts” novel because it’s a very sci-fi adventure. It also explores many deeper concepts. Also, it is written by Kurt Vonnegut, so its ideas aren’t so far out for Berkeley students to grasp. It is about firsts in ideas and purposes in life.”
