I found this book very easy to relate to. I've always had a dysfunctional relationship with food. When I was growing up, I didn't know anything about nutritional value or portion sizes. It was always, "clean your plate." And growing up in Minnesota w ...more

Lovely little book. More like a book of poetry than a narrative. Font is very small and sometimes very difficult to read.

I hadn't really wanted to read this book as all the summaries made it sound so sad. Then it started getting such great reviews and my interest was more piqued. It was a bit sad but it is very beautifully written. I think this may very well go down as ...more

I thought this was supposed to be funny, it just seemed kind of sad to me. Perhaps I'm not privy to the joke since I've never worked in an office environment. This book just did not resonate with me.

I spent the first 60 pages, or so, very frustrated with this book because there were so many characters, all going by first and last names, and I couldn't keep them all straight. If I remember correctly, Puzo did this as well. I think that's why I ga ...more

Patrick Rothfuss
“I have an apple that thinks its a pear. And a bun that thinks it’s a cat. And a lettuce that thinks its a lettuce."
"It’s a clever lettuce, then."
"Hardly," she said with a delicate snort. "Why would anything clever think it’s a lettuce?"
"Even if it is a lettuce?" I asked.
"Especially then," she said. "Bad enough to be a lettuce. How awful to think you are a lettuce too.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

Sarah Addison Allen
“Oh, please. Everyone in this town always says that, like you have to be born here to understand things. I understand plenty. You're only as weird as you want to be.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Leo Tolstoy
“I think... if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Stephenie Meyer
“He's like a drug for you, Bella.”
Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse

A.A. Milne
“The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking."

[War With Honour, 1940]”
A.A. Milne
