Shattered by Jonathan Allen

Parts of this book were definitely interesting, but there were also quite a few sections that got bogged down with too many names of minor players or other narrative clutter that takes up space that might have been better spent on "big picture" stuff ...more

The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck
"3.5 stars
Strictly my opinion but I thought this one was hyped up. I personally wanted to know more about the plot to kill Hitler. At times I was really bored and other times I was really into the story. Just ok for me. "

Chemistry of Magic by Patricia Rice
"This was a wonderful addition to the Unexpected Magic series and one of my favorites so far. I couldn't put it down.

Emilia and Dare are both interesting and likable characters, and I loved seeing how their marriage of confidence turned into do muc..." Read more of this review »

Howard Zinn
“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”
Howard Zinn

Abraham Lincoln
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
Abraham Lincoln

Walt Whitman
“I sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world.”
Walt Whitman

Siegfried Sassoon
“Suicide in the trenches:

I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.

* * * * *

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.”
Siegfried Sassoon, The War Poems
