The premise was fantastic, and I was well with the writing up until the second half of the book. Somewhere in the second half the characterization began to fall apart. I am all right reading books with unsympathetic main characters (think The Magicia ...more

Douglas Adams
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

“The progression of minor keys...they're meant to represent imperfection..."
I understand. But that is a philosophical conceit. All artists strive toward perfection or else lack fire."
Imperfections make the gods draw near. They crave to fix things. Same way some people leap in to finish other people's sentences. God loves nothing better than to break perfect things.”
Carla Speed McNeil, Finder: Mystery Date

Cormac McCarthy
“You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Mark Z. Danielewski
“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

Jonathan Carroll
“Dogs are minor angels, and I don't mean that facetiously. They love unconditionally, forgive immediately, are the truest of friends, willing to do anything that makes us happy, etcetera. If we attributed some of those qualities to a person we would say they are special. If they had ALL of them, we would call them angelic. But because it's "only" a dog, we dismiss them as sweet or funny but little more. However when you think about it, what are the things that we most like in another human being? Many times those qualities are seen in our dogs every single day-- we're just so used to them that we pay no attention.”
Jonathan Carroll
