This was an enjoyable story of what might happen if the animals suddenly ran amok. There was however, one structural flaw. It started out in such compelling fashion, that the ending was doomed to be a bit anticlimactic. It didn't help that in the end...more

Reviewing short story collections is a bit of a challenge because you COULD do one little review for each story. My mind, with it's compromised short term memory, isn't built for that. So I offer you this general review with a few stories picked out...more

In "On Writing", Stephen King makes reference to that moment when you read a book that some publishing house paid for and think, "I can write better than this". This was another one of those moments for me. The storyline is a cute, coming of age stor...more

I have to rate The Associate as one of my least favorite of Grisham's books. As compared to his usual work, this story took awfully long to be set up and when it finally got going, it seemed as though it was pulled from beneath us before it was actua...more

Before I began to read, I looked at the photos and immediately I found the handwriting comparisons to be VERY compelling. So I was convinced before I began to read. The more I read, the more little things I found that pulled me closer to certainty. I...more

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
" August 2007

I was riding in a cab in Bombay recently, and a bookseller on foot approached me at a traffic light with a stack of books. I did my best not to look at the boy, but I couldn't help it. He was waving several books in my face and somethin... " Read more of this review »

Robert F. Kennedy
“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their peers, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.”
Robert F. Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy
“But we can perhaps remember, if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and in happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.

Surely, this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men, and surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our own hearts brothers and countrymen once again.”

Khaled Hosseini
“Not a word passes between us, not because we have nothing to say, but because we don't have to say anything”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

Aeschylus
“Wisdom comes through suffering.
Trouble, with its memories of pain,
Drips in our hearts as we try to sleep,
So men against their will
Learn to practice moderation.
Favours come to us from gods.”
Aeschylus, Agamemnon

Stephen King
“We each owe a death, there are no exceptions, I know that, but sometimes, oh God, the Green Mile is so long.”
Stephen King, The Green Mile, Part 6: Coffey on the Mile
