Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew  Smith

The beginning was fresh and interesting and for some time the story stayed fresh and interesting. But at one point you just got to move, to evolve your characters... I felt that that point never happened in Grasshopper Jungle.

Another dnf with a too smooth plot. You get a couple of pages of introduction and then things start happening right on top of one another. The characters are transported from one plot point to another so fast, you hardly get to know them. They don't...more

I stopped around 25% mark and just don't want to continue. The story is too smooth and too... emaciated, I guess. The bare skeleton where every character and every detail exists just for the sole purpose of advancing the plot. I just wish for a bit m...more

A great little gem of a stand-alone fantasy novel. I especially loved how much thought went into language, naming conventions and so on. You don't see that done right often. I only wish we'd get to spend some more time with Maia and his court.

“Relius looked away. "He said that you...cried," he said softly.
"But not that he cried as well," said the queen, amused at the memory. "We were very lachrymose... would you like to hear more romance of the evening? He told me the Guard should be reduced by half, and I threw an ink jar at his head."
"Is that when he cried?"
"He ducked," said Attolia dryly.
"I had not pictured you for a fishwife."
"Lo, the transforming power of love.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

“There is one rule, above all others, for being a man. Whatever comes, face it on your feet.”

“You learn something new everyday."
"What are you learning?" Sophos asked.
"To keep my mouth shut, I hope.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Thief

“For the way loneliness is worse when you return to it after a reprieve—like the soul’s version of putting on a wet bathing suit, clammy and miserable.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.'

'Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?'

'When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone
