So this guy renames himself "Belion". I think that's really cool. I love how intelligent all of Netzer's characters are. This book was supposed to make you think,... umm... I'm still thinking about what to say about it.

I got this book last October to review, and I wound up stopping after the first couple of chapters. They were blah, and didn't keep me interested enough to make time to finish the book. I finally got a hold of the audiobook, though, and finished it....more

I loved it because it was adorable, and hated it because the plots were so obvious. But the title theme of having dates every weekend based on letters of the alphabet, is lovely.

Richard Dawkins
“We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Sam Harris
“It is merely an accident of history that it is considered normal in our society to believe that the Creator of the universe can hear your thoughts while it is demonstrative of mental illness to believe that he is communicating with you by having the rain tap in Morse code on your bedroom window.”
Sam Harris, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason

Sam Harris
“We read the Golden Rule and judge it to be a brilliant distillation of many of our ethical impulses. And then we come across another of God’s teachings on morality: if a man discovers on his wedding night that his bride is not a virgin, he must stone her to death on her father’s doorstep (Deuteronomy 22:13-21).”
Sam Harris

Sam Harris
“The moral truth here is obvious: anyone who feels that the interests of a blastocyst just might supersede the interests of a child with a spinal cord injury has had his moral sense blinded by religious metaphysics.”
Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation
