To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Rate this book

OK, let's face it. It's a love letter to a city that exists in books almost more than it exists in real life.

It's also a marvellously (and somewhat pythonesquely) funny book, with some great twists and touches, and of course, a finale that is totally

Not much point in reviewing this book. If you've made it through the previous three series, you will love it. If you haven't, you shouldn't start here. Sorry, can't do better than that!

This was a quick and very interesting read, very cerebral, and reminded me of nothing so much as being a go-between in a long-going argument between members of a dysfunctional family, except, of course, that the father is a wizard, and the source of ...more

The Shadow in the North by Philip Pullman
Rate this book

Another brilliant bit of fiction from Philip Pullman. It's apparently young adult fiction, but it's very grown-up young adult fiction. In it are all the bits of life that matter, and all the grey moral decisions a person has to make. Too often, I fin ...more

Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty

Spoiler: Capitalism = The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Mathematically proven.

With a simple solution: tax the rich.

No, really. Worth reading for the research, and for easy lessons for an economic dilettante like myself, but really quite tha

Annie Dillard
“All the green in the planted world consists of these whole, rounded chloroplasts wending their ways in water. If you analyze a molecule of chlorophyll itself, what you get is one hundred thirty-six atoms of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen arranged in an exact and complex relationship around a central ring. At the ring's center is a single atom of magnesium. Now: If you remove the atom of magnesium and in its exact place put an atom of iron, you get a molecule of hemoglobin. The iron atom combines with all the other atoms to make red blood, the streaming red dots in the goldfish's tail.”
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Terry Pratchett
“I see evil when I look in my shaving mirror. It is, philosophically, present everywhere in the universe in order, apparently, to highlight the existence of good. I think there is more to this theory, but I tend to burst out laughing at this point.”
Terry Pratchett, Unseen Academicals

Terry Pratchett
“And that's when I first learned about evil. It is built in to the very nature of the universe. Every world spins in pain. If there is any kind of supreme being, I told myself, it is up to all of us to become his moral superior.”
Terry Pratchett, Unseen Academicals

Roméo Dallaire
“Many signs point to the fact that the youth of the Third World will no longer tolerate living in circumstances that give them no hope for the future. From the young boys I met in the demobilization camps in Sierra Leone to the suicide bombers of Palestine and Chechnya, to the young terrorists who fly planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we can no longer afford to ignore them. We have to take concrete steps to remove the causes of their rage, or we have to be prepared to suffer the consequences.”
Roméo Dallaire, Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
