Masterfully written!

Seriously - You MUST read this book word for word. No skimming. It is brilliantly pieced together. Another reader made mention about "if you missed Harry Potter this is a read for you". Even if you didn't read Harry Potter, this i

The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
"Well, it's done. And it's been a long time coming...

Back in late 2009 I finally got the book to the point where I was satisfied with it. It was an okay book. It was a book that if I had to publish it, I knew it wouldn't embarrass me.

By May 2010..." Read more of this review »
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
"Well, Kvothe's journey continues, and Rothfuss doesn't disappoint. This story is proving to be quite lengthy, but that's a good thing, in my opinion. I like getting to know characters and all the mundane and prosaic bits of life. If you just want..." Read more of this review »

Desert Heat by J.A. Jance
"My only expectation for this little mystery was just that, a little mystery. Desert Heat turned out to be more. While this first in the Joanna Brady series is quite short, it's full of interesting characters and an action-packed plot. The reader s..." Read more of this review »

Joan Didion
“A single person is missing for you, and the whole world is empty.”
Joan Didion, The Year of Magical Thinking

Frederick Douglass
“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
Frederick Douglass

Diane Setterfield
“All morning I struggled with the sensation of stray wisps of one world seeping through the cracks of another. Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes -- characters even -- caught in the fibers of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you.”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

Louise Penny
“Normally death came at night, taking a person in their sleep, stopping their heart or tickling them awake, leading them to the bathroom with a splitting headache before pouncing and flooding their brain with blood. It waits in alleys and metro stops. After the sun goes down plugs are pulled by white-clad guardians and death is invited into an antiseptic room.

But in the country death comes, uninvited, during the day. It takes fishermen in their longboats. It grabs children by the ankles as they swim. In winter it calls them down a slope too steep for their budding skills, and crosses their skies at the tips. It waits along the shore where snow met ice not long ago but now, unseen by sparkling eyes, a little water touches the shore, and the skater makes a circle slightly larger than intended. Death stands in the woods with a bow and arrow at dawn and dusk. And it tugs cars off the road in broad daylight, the tires spinning furiously on ice or snow, or bright autumn leaves. ”
Louise Penny, Still Life

Douglas Preston
“You think of yourself as an "individual person", with a unique and separate mind. You think you are born and you think you die. All your life you feel separate and alone. Sometimes desperately so. You fear death because you fear the loss of individuality. All this is an illusion. You, he, she, those things around you living or not, the stars and galaxies, the empty space in between- these are not distinct, separate objects. All is fundamentally entangled.”
Douglas Preston, Blasphemy
