Mostly dreadful, but I read to the end. Thought it was taking forever to get there, however. There were parts that were fun and enjoyable, but also loads of crazy subplots, characters who are the opposite of their Austen selves, pistol-packing societ ...more

“History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”

Steve Martin
“It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary...but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics.

Steve Martin

Ernest Hemingway
“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
Ernest Hemingway

Norman Mailer
“The writer can grow as a person or he can shrink. ... His curiosity, his reaction to life must not diminish.

Norman Mailer
