3.5 stars. I don't usually read mysteries, but I had read a lot of good reviews for Horowitz' "Moriarty" so I figured I should start with the first book in the series.

I do enjoy watching the current Sherlock television series, and I have enjoyed the

A Kindle first read. I don't know if it was the translation or the actual writing style of the author, but the writing was too simplistic and it seemed very anachronistic. Actually, a lot of the situations and characterization seemed anachronistic to ...more

I felt this story could have been interesting, if not altogether original, if not for one major thing: it takes almost 3/4 of the book to see anything interesting happen (after the initial first interesting thing). Basically everyone's just running a ...more

2.8 stars. I enjoyed this, but I felt it was trying to hard to be like the Mercy Thompson series (shapeshifter, werewolf boyfriend), which, while still popcorn fiction, I feel is a lot better than this. And, the main character's a little hard to swal ...more

Will Schwalbe
“What I suddenly understood was that a thank-you note isn't the price you pay for receiving a gift, as so many children think it is, a kind of minimum tribute or toll, but an opportunity to count your blessings. And gratitude isn't what you give in exchange for something; it's what you feel when you are blessed--blessed to have family and friends who care about you, and who want to see you happy. Hence the joy from thanking.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Erin Morgenstern
“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Thomas Hardy
“It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs.”
Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd

Will Schwalbe
“We're all in the end-of-your-life book-club, whether we acknowledge it or not; each book we read may well be the last, each conversation the final one.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Erin Morgenstern
“Only the ship is made of books, its sails thousands of overlapping pages, and the sea it floats upon is dark black ink.”
