This is a very satisfactory ending for a long running series. The last few didn't advance the story much in my opinion and I thought it had run out of steam but Kitty Saves the World tied up all the loose ends in a big finish.

I have read several of Stephen Dobyns' books in the past; his "Saratoga" series and the chilling "Church of Dead Girls" so I was expecting something that would be well-written at the very least. What I wasn't expecting was a book quite as funny and e ...more

Lois McMaster Bujold
“The gods' most savage curses come upon us as answers to our own prayers. Prayer is a dangerous business.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Curse of Chalion

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Memory

Charlotte Brontë
“It is a long way to Ireland, Janet, and I am sorry to send my little friend on such weary travels: but if I can't do better, how is it to be helped? Are you anything akin to me, do you think, Jane?"

I could risk no sort of answer by this time: my heart was still.

"Because, he said, "I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you - especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land some broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, - you'd forget me.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Groucho Marx
“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
Groucho Marx

Steve Wozniak
“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.”
Steve Wozniak
