Ivan and 6 other people liked Addie's review of House of Leaves:
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
"This book is certainly an experience.

If you read this book in public you will get weird looks and/or comments from onlookers. Just be ready with a smirk and a quick description for when they ask you what it's about. Because they will.

No Man Is An Island - Meditation XVII by John Donne
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”
John Donne

John Fowles
“Liking other people is an illusion we have to cherish in ourselves if we are to live in society.”
John Fowles, The Magus

Tana French
“There's a Spanish proverb," he said, "that's always fascinated me. "Take what you want and pay for it, says God.'" "I don't believe in God," Daniel said, "but that principle seems, to me, to have a divinity of its own; a kind of blazing purity. What could be simpler, or more crucial? You can have anything you want, as long as you accept that there is a price and that you will have to pay it.”
Tana French, The Likeness

Gavin Extence
“I knew how many zeroes there were in a quintillion, but I thought that algebra lived in ponds.”
Gavin Extence, The Universe Versus Alex Woods

John Fowles
“You wish to be liked. I wish simply to be. One day you will know what that means, perhaps. And you will smile. Not against me. But with me.”
John Fowles, The Magus

Hannah Kent
“To know what a person has done, and to know who a person is, are very different things.”
Hannah Kent, Burial Rites
