Who could think that a book where they cut a little girl in halves in the beginning could be so absolutely boring?! Yet it is. So disappointing :(

Another book about a guy who discovered that magic exists, and he can do it if he studies hards. It's not the worst of them, but far from the best either. Maybe I've just read too many of this kind of books by now.

Neil Gaiman
“You're always you, and that don't change, and you're always changing, and there's nothing you can do about it.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Sue Townsend
“Now I know I am an intellectual. I saw Malcolm Muggeridge on the television last night, and I understood nearly every word. It all adds up. A bad home, poor diet, not liking punk. I think I will join the library and see what happens.”
Sue Townsend

Terry Pratchett
“Anyway, if you stop tellin' people it's all sorted out afer they're dead, they might try sorting it all out while they're alive. ”
Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

Nick Hornby
“Please stop patronizing those who are reading a book - The Da Vinci Code, maybe- because they are enjoying it. For a start, none of us know what kind of an effort this represents for the individual reader. It could be his or her first full-length adult novel; it might be the book that finally reveals the purpose and joy of reading to someone who has hitherto been mystified by the attraction books exert on others. And anyway, reading for enjoyment is what we should all be doing. I don't mean we should all be reading chick lit or thrillers (although if that's what you want to read, it's fine by me, because here's something no one else will tell you: if you don't read the classics, or the novel that won this year's Booker Prize, then nothing bad will happen to you; more importantly,nothing good will happen to you if you do); I simply mean that turning pages should not be like walking through thick mud. The whole purpose of books is that we read them, and if you find you can't, it might not be your inadequacy that's to blame. "Good" books can be pretty awful sometimes.”
Nick Hornby, Housekeeping vs. the Dirt

Dodie Smith
“When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it - or rather, it is like living it. It makes reading so much more exciting, but I don't suppose many people try to do it.”
Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle
