Snuff by Terry Pratchett
Snuff (Discworld, #39)

5 stars for the fun, the turns of phrase, the characters, and how Young Sam is turning out. Four for the plot revolving around social justice in a good yet predictable way. One needs to read Pratchett rather slowly or you miss half the fun!

A good book for teen fans of the Alex Ryder series, but somehow not quite as good. We pick up Zach in the middle of his story as an agent of The Project, and he is trained as an assassin at age 16, probably even more unbelievable than Ryder's agent s...more

Be wary reading reviews of this book--knowing too much will break the charm of puzzling out the story of Tooly and her, um, unique childhood. The book weaves together three timelines: Tooly of long past, more recent past, and present. Each character...more

Interesting premise and I definitely wanted to finish the book--a cyborg Cinderella. The characters and plot, thought are a bit wooden. I'd expect the next installment in this series might be stronger!

This did not work for me. You cannot simply insert a dragon into a realistic historical novel. Nor, for some reason, did I ever truly empathize with Chi-yen in spite of her hard start in life as the daughter of a ?Chinese prostitute. Ad a stereotyped...more

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Mark Twain
“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”
Mark Twain, The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain

Henry David Thoreau
“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”
Henry David Thoreau

Flannery O'Connor
“Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.”
Flannery O'Connor

“The purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning and inhibit clarity.”
