it was amazing

I love the way Zelazny writes. Kealan Donovan has tragically lost everything. He spends his time living in a friend's spare room and walking around town, feeling sorry for himself. At a coffee shop he meets Valerie, who begins to pull him out of his slump. But Valerie's past catches up with her, and therefore catches up with Kealan. Philosophical musings and believable action. I really liked this one.

“We learn to walk when we’re babies and never forget unless we’re drunk.”

“Extinction, that’s where it’s going, that’s where we’re headed. And we’re going that way because we’re all so fucking afraid of it. We’re so afraid of dying off that we’re setting ourselves up for exactly that. Keeping away from each other, rarely making eye contact with those we don’t already know. Not helping when folks need help. Avoiding confrontation and staying away when we see anything which might instill fear. Doing our best to stay out of trouble, while in effect creating more trouble.”
Trent Zelazny, Shadowboxer
