    Hi, I'm looking for books to widen my general knowledge and understanding of the world during the summer and would be eternally grateful if anyone had any recommendations on what to read. Topics such as philosophy, science, medicine are just and idea into what I'm looking for, but they are not an exclusive list at all, any book which is factual and interesting will be amazing! If it helps I'm an 18 year old guy who's just finished his a levels and the last book I read which wasn't to do with my subject learning was many, many years ago...

    even if you don't have an interest in comic books you'd probably still enjoy it, its really that good
