Mawgojzeta and 176 other people liked Stephen's review of Zone One:
Zone One by Colson Whitehead
" Attractive, well-dressed writing and some buxom, sexy phrase-turning make this novel’s surface shiny and pretty. However, its hollowness, lack of depth and monotone emotionlessness make the interior a soulless, vacuous fail. It’s prose porn with n... " Read more of this review »
The Knife Man by Wendy Moore
" This is a very fine biography of John Hunter, the fascinating 18th century surgeon who applied scientific methods - reason, observation and experimentation - to the field of surgery, at a time when his contemporaries were still studying the theori... " Read more of this review »
Mawgojzeta and 3 other people liked Chris's review of The Robber Bride:
The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
" The first Atwood novel I read was The Handmaid’s Tale. If I touch the book, I can remember that first reading. Devouring the book as I lay on the couch, the leather cool despite the fact that it was a sweltering Philadelphia summer, I remember bei... " Read more of this review »
Mawgojzeta and 6 other people liked Michael's review of Fragment:
Fragment by Warren Fahy
" A popcorn, thriller of a book in the vein of the work of Michael Crichton.

The crew of a reality show discovers a long lost island that harbors a unique secret--there are strains of life here that have followed a different path of development. The... " Read more of this review »

John Crowley
“Learning to decipher words had only added to the pleasures of holding spines and turning pages, measuring the journey to the end with a thumb-riffle, poring over frontispieces. Books! Opening with a crackle of old glue, releasing perfume; closing with a solid thump.”
John Crowley, Little, Big

David Wong
“John flung himself into a pseudo-karate stance, one hand poised behind him and one in front, posed like a cartoon cactus. I thought for an odd moment he had moved his limbs so fast they had made that whoosh sound through air but then I realized John was making that sound with his mouth.”
David Wong, John Dies at the End

Louise Erdrich
“I think she is confused by the way I want her, which is like nobody else. I know this deep down. I want her in a new way, a way she's never been told about.”
Louise Erdrich, The Antelope Wife

David Wong
“Tried to escape, to block out the fact that I was being eaten alive by arachnids. For some reason the only thing I could replace it with was the image of being eaten by tiny clowns.”
David Wong, This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It

Suzette Haden Elgin
“First principle: there's no such thing as reality. We make it up by perceiving stimuli from the environment - external or internal - and making statements about it. Everybody perceives stuff, everybody makes up statements about it, everybody - so far as we can tell - agrees enough to get by, so that when I say 'Hand me the coffee' you know what to hand me. And that's reality. Second principle; people get used to a certain kind of reality and come to expect it, and if what they perceive doesn't fit the set of statements everybody's agreed to, either the culture has to go through a kind of fit until it adjusts...or they just blank it out.”
Suzette Haden Elgin, Native Tongue
