I normally like this series. This one was boring and the plot made no sense. I almost stopped reading it before finishing. But managed to struggle through to the end"

The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart
"I've been thinking all day long how to write a review of this book that does not end up being a riff on all of my own piano memories that have been brought back to life while reading about Carhart's. I'll try to behave, I promise.

Charlie Huston
“Women. You tell me they're not all witches, and I'll tell you you haven't been paying attention.”
Charlie Huston

Jo Nesbø
“Bjarne Møller, my former boss, says people like me always choose the line of most resistance. It's in what he calls our 'accursed nature'. That's why we always end up on our own. I don't know. I like being alone. Perhaps I have grown to like my self-image of being a loner, too....I think you have to find something about yourself that you like in order to survive. Some people say being alone is unsociable and selfish. But you're independent and you don't drag others down with you, if that's the way you're heading. Many people are afraid of being alone. But it made me feel strong, free and invulnerable.”
Jo Nesbø, Frelseren

Dean Koontz
“Jocko likes salty, Jocko likes sweet, but never bring Jocko any hot sauce, like with jalapenos, because it makes Jocko squirt funny-smelling stuff out his ears.”
Dean Koontz, Dead and Alive

Mahatma Gandhi
“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Alan Bradley
“I remembered a piece of sisterly advice, which Feely once gave Daffy and me:
"If ever you're accosted by a man," she'd said, "kick him in the Casanovas and run like blue blazes!"
Although it had sounded at the time like a useful bit of intelligence, the only problem was that I didn't know where the Casanovas were located.
I'd have to think of something else.”
Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
