The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
" One review, written by my GR friend Barbara Thompson, led me to THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. I've read none of the other hundreds, thousands of reviews -- who's counting? I can easily dismiss unintentional plagiarism and chance as explanations f... " Read more of this review »

I loved this book. Although we all race in the rain, some are better at it than others. "The car goes where the eyes go." We're all headed in a direction, toward a finish line. We race amid obstacles. For a rare few, the car, the driver, the crew ar...more

I liked the chapter about being lost in the woods with her mother and her sister. I thought that was great comic writing. I hope she writes a comic novel. She can do this. I liked the image of herself as a fish out of water. She also wrote a great se...more

" I'd like to say I liked this book - I did try to. And I can't deny the freaky power of Allie Brosh's crudely drawn illustrations to evoke complicated emotions and ideas.

But I'm tired of navel-gazing blogs turned into books - this one reminded me... " Read more of this review »

This will be the Chariots of Fire movie when the next Summer Olympics rolls around. Terrific social class theme underlying the narrative. Joe is a model of resiliency.

Daniel Gilbert
“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
“Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.”
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
“Big Brother is Watching You.”
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
