Not all three star reviews are the same. Most of the time, 3 stars means "yeah, it was good. I liked it." The PB&J experience in book form, if you will. Enjoyable, satisfying, but not something you're going to recommend to someone to impress them ...more

John Scalzi
“If you want me to treat your ideas with more respect, get some better ideas.”
John Scalzi, Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded: A Decade of Whatever, 1998-2008

Neil Gaiman
“When the first living thing existed, I was there waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished. I'll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 3: Dream Country

George R.R. Martin
“I have a realistic grasp of my own strengths and weaknesses. My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind… and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. That’s why I read so much, Jon Snow.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

David Foster Wallace
“Everybody is identical in their secret unspoken belief that way deep down they are different from everyone else.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Gordon R. Dickson
“Trouble rather the tiger in his lair than the sage among his books. For to you kingdoms and their armies are things mighty and enduring, but to him they are but toys of the moment, to be overturned with the flick of a finger.”
Gordon R. Dickson, Tactics of Mistake
