"Christopher Moore seems to be hit/miss with me - I like a book, the next is "meh," then I like another. I'm liking this one. Some of the little snarky bits of humor in it are too perfect. "Black Smoke Follows" for example... Pokey "dead" ... Coyote's first cash machine, etc. Love it." Jul 30, 2014 09:40PM

"I was on the fence with this right up till she debunked Kitty Genovese. I seem to automatically love people who do that...but shortly after, the segment on "9 tips for personal safety" is fan-freakin-tastic. Go you, for teaching women to not blindly accept that they are meant to be victims just because they're *women" and "vulnerable." LOVE it. I would take a class by her in a heartbeat."

Fine, fuck it," Clay said, tossing the plate into the yard. The chicken parts bounced nicely, breading themselves with a light coating of sand, ants, and dried grass. "When did chicken become like plutonium anyway, for Christ's sake? You can't let it touch you or it's certain fucking death. And eggs and hamburgers kill you unless you cook them to the consistency of limestone! And if you turn on your fucking cell phone, the plane is going to plunge out of the sky in a ball of flames? And kids can't take a dump anymore but they have to have a helmet and pads on make them look like the Road Warrior. Right? Right? What the fuck happened to the world? When did everything get so goddamn deadly? Huh? I've been going to sea for thirty damned years, and nothing's killed me. I've swum with everything that can bite, sting, or eat you, and I've done every stupid thing at depth that any human can -- and I'm still alive. Fuck, Clair, I was unconscious for an hour underwater less than a week ago, and...more Christopher Moore

Nate had been born and raised in British Columbia, and Canadians hate, above all things, to offend. It was part of the national consciousness. "Be polite" was an unwritten, unspoken rule, but ingrained into the psyche of an entire country. (Of course, as with any rule, there were exceptions: parts of Quebec, where people maintained the "dismissive to the point of confrontation, with subsequent surrender" mind-set of the French; and hockey, in which any Canadian may, with impunity, slam, pummel, elbow, smack, punch, body-check, and beat the shit out of, with sticks, any other human being, punctuated by profanities, name-calling, questioning parentage, and accusations of bestiality, usually-coincidentally- in French.)Christopher Moore

I didn't realize this was part of a set and the story of side characters from the first book until I'd finished it. So that's great for fans of book 1...which I haven't got around to reading yet.

In a nutshell: it's chick lit/romance/contemporary and...more

Not my very favorite Discworld, but it had a few laugh out loud funny moments and it was good to get some backstory on Rincewind.

This seems like a great book for those recently diagnosed with Celiac's or gluten intolerance and feeling down about their food options. It's about 80% food porn, 15% memoir, and 5% cookbook. It's fairly sure to remind those who can't eat bread of al...more

Albert Einstein
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

“Sometimes the slightest things change the directions of our lives, the merest breath of a circumstance, a random moment that connects like a meteorite striking the earth. Lives have swiveled and changed direction on the strength of a chance remark.”
