A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
"George RR Martin is the great realist of the fantasy genre; he probably writes the best characters, and I thought his prose was consistently strong, despite some of the stuff I've been reading in other reviews. Of course, this book was pretty ligh..." Read more of this review »

This is the true story of Humankind, the one from which all religious tomes shy away. Nobody wants to admit man was created by foul-mouthed beings not of earth. Nobody wants to believe we were subjugated and filthy, exactly formed in the emotional, i ...more

Way before the show, before it was even cool to know A Song of Ice and Fire, I had a friend who was especially fervent in his adoration of these books. He implored me beseechingly, sweat beading his brow. Many times I have picked up A Game of Thrones ...more

Neil Gaiman
“Then, one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...you give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“He was still too young to know that the heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good, and that thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Neal Stephenson
“It's--my God--like you stretched a tarp across a stadium to turn it into a giant tom-tom and crashed a 747 into it.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

“Maybe instead of strings it's stories things are made of, an infinite number of tiny vibrating stories; once upon a time they all were part of one big giant superstory, except it got broken up into a jillion different pieces, that's why no story on its own makes any sense, and so what you have to do in a life is try and weave it back together, my story into your story, our stories into all the other people's we know, until you've got something that to God or whoever might look like a letter, or even a whole word....”
Paul Murray, Skippy Dies

“The labels on the little bottles and boxes do not tell you which one is the sleeping pill. Instead they have names, long strange names that slide out of shape while you are reading them. They sound like kings from history or alien planets. There are hundreds of them.”
Paul Murray
