I'm sure I would give more stars if I were Jewish or male.
Portnoy's Complaint by Philip Roth
"Earlier today I grossly contradicted myself by stating that I'd enjoyed all the books I'd read which were written by Philip Roth. Then I realised I'd forgotten about Portnoy's Complaint.

There is a school of thought which says to write well you hav..." Read more of this review »

Stella Gibbons
“Mary, you know I hate parties. My idea of hell is a very large party in a cold room where everybody has to play hockey properly.”
Stella Gibbons, Cold Comfort Farm

Azar Nafisi
“Living in the Islamic Republic is like having sex with someone you loathe.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran

Philip Pullman
“But think of Adam and Eve like an imaginary number, like the square root of minus one: you can never see any concrete proof that it exists, but if you include it in your equations, you can calculate all manner of things that couldn't be imagined without it.”
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

Stella Gibbons
“Haven't you enough money?'
For she knew that this is what is the matter with nearly everybody over twenty-five.”
Stella Gibbons, Cold Comfort Farm

J.R.R. Tolkien
“And so Gollum found them hours later, when he returned, crawling and creeping down the path out of the gloom ahead. Sam sat propped against the stone, his head dropping sideways and his breathing heavy. In his lap lay Frodo's head, drowned in sleep; upon his white forehead lay one of Sam's brown hands, and the other lay softly upon his master's breast. Peace was in both their faces.
Gollum looked at them. A strange expression passed over his lean hungry face. The gleam faded from his eyes, and they went dim and grey, old and tired. A spasm of pain seemed to twist him, and he turned away, peering back up towards the pass, shaking his head, as if engaged in some interior debate. Then he came back, and slowly putting out a trembling hand, very cautiously he touched Frodo's knee--but almost the touch was a caress. For a fleeting moment, could one of the sleepers have seen him, they would have thought that they beheld an old weary hobbit, shrunken by the years that had carried him far beyond his time, beyond friends and kin, and the fields and streams of youth, an old starved pitiable thing.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
