There are some moments of real brilliance in this novel — the descriptions of people dying before realizing that they are dying; the deliriums that the protagonist experiences as he deals with being the last person alive, the great descriptions of na ...more

Phonogram, Vol. 1 by Kieron Gillen
" The second and third volumes are much better. Vol. 1 is pretty bad, and It think shows Gillen as a young writer. "

Vandermeer's newest novel is a fable about what it means to live in a ruined world, and what to do when things aren't going to get better. It's so difficult to abandon the notion that we can reverse climate change, that it isn't already too late to s ...more

Kim Stanley Robinson
“The intense thereness of it-haecceity Sax had called it once, when John had asked him something about his religious beliefs-I believe in haecceity, Sax had said, in thisness, in here-and-nowness, in the particular individuality of every moment. That's why I want to know what is this? what is this? what is this? Now, remembering Sax's odd word and his odd religion, John finally understood him; because he was feeling the thisness of the moment like a rock in his hand, and it felt as if his entire life had been lived only to get him to this moment.”
Kim Stanley Robinson, Red Mars

William Blake
“The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.”
William Blake

Charles Dickens
“and he glanced at the backs of the books, with an awakened curiosity that went below the binding. No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.”
Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend

George Eliot
“If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Arundhati Roy
“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
Arundhati Roy, War Talk

Jennifer I have a feeling that viewing your book list is just going to make me feel helplessly un-smart ... :)
