Wow, this is a tough book to read. I get how this book had a profound effect on anti-war people, but that's not really why I liked it so much. Buffy St. Marie's song "The Universal Soldier" and Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" deliver the anti-war ...more

As portrayed in this book the world of the 17th century consists of the exploiters and the exploited. Pirates are English misfits sanctioned by the English king to exploit Spanish Caribbean colonists. I found these people despicable. The author attem ...more

Millie Drake recommended this book to me several years ago and I was glad when Glen Grayman chose it for our bookclub. The resilience theme in the narrative inspired me. Louie Zamperine was one Hell of a person. On each page of the book his circumst ...more

There is so much wrong with this book, I'm surprised I finished it. First, it is written as a mystery. There is no mystery. Everyone who reads this book will find the sequence of events totally predictable. Nothing is a mystery! Instead, it is a ques ...more
Dr. Lloyd E. Campbell and 8 other people liked Chris's review of Sarah's Key:
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
"Completely unsatisfying. The storyline was mere sensationalism and flat morbidity in places; and in other places completely trivial and melodramatic. Made me think that the extent of the author's comment on the horrors of the holocaust would be, "..." Read more of this review »

“The fact that we often judge the pleasure of an experience by its ending can cause us to make some curious choices.”
Daniel Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness

George Orwell
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
George Orwell, Animal Farm

George Orwell
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, 1984

George Orwell
“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
George Orwell, 1984

George Orwell
“Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.”
George Orwell, 1984
