I read this to acquaint myself with Mr.Dick, and I'm so glad I have. He is a genius, and is now, I'd definitely say, one of my favorite authors. Read him if you can!

Plan B by Anne Lamott
“I have a lot of faith. But I am also afraid a lot, and have no real certainty about anything. I remembered something Father Tom had told me--that the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns.”

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“Without pain, how could we know joy?' This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.”

Shteygart has good style, but the future he depicted was not that great at covering up the lackluster plot. Sorry. I read it to the end for it's endearing characters and good writing style.

Chronic City by Jonathan Lethem
Rate this book
Clear rating
It was classic Lethem, with wonderful imagery and intelligent dialogue and concepts, but the plot fell a little flat at the end. It was pessimistic in a way you hope a novel based in real life doesn't succumb to, but beautiful nonetheless.

Myla Goldberg
“As much as I admire and value intellectualism and experimentation, I've discovered that unless a book has a throbbing heart as well as a sexy brain, I feel like the story is a specimen in a sealed glass jar and not a living, breathing creature I want to take by the hand and talk to for hours on end.”

“We don’t need a list of rights and wrongs, tables of dos and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. Thou shalt not is soon forgotten, but Once upon a time lasts forever.”
