Ian McEwan is a master at relaying the consequences of specific events. In this book the judge's act or failure to act to a specific behavior meant events changed one way instead of another. If you read his book or saw the movie based on his book Ato ...more

"This book is hard to rate because for about the first half, I was bored, but kept expecting something interesting to occur. Yet, it was good enough to keep reading. Then something interesting did occur and it got more interesting. And by the last..." Read more of this review »

The Girl on the Train is an entertaining book. The five main characters in the book are well drawn. The nagging question that haunts me about the book is, "What is the meaning of the train?" The train acts as a sixth main character in the story. For ...more

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

Daniel Gilbert
“My friends tell me that I have a tendency to point out problems without offering solutions, but they never tell me what I should do about it.”
Daniel Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness

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
“No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”
George Orwell, Animal Farm

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

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
