Carol and 19 other people liked Skip's review of The Guilty (Will Robie, #4):
The Guilty by David Baldacci
"The newest Will Robie novel was a little disappointing, at least for me. In killing a target, the bullet accidentally kills the target's daughter that was not supposed to be there, and he loses his edge. While home on rest leave, the Blue Man tell..." Read more of this review »

After listening to Playing with Fire by Tess Gerritsen, I wanted to share it with everyone. The beautiful violin music binds the story together and gives it deep. Starting out with a gentle waltz and ending in a sort of dark panic. There are two stor ...more

“That's why people loved stories so, I realized in that instant, because they found in them what was missing from their own lives, the things they knew, no matter how much or how hard they might hope and dream and scheme, they would never have.”
Brandy Purdy, The Queen's Pleasure

Henry Marsh
“When push comes to shove we can afford to lose an arm or a leg, but I am operating on peoples thoughts and feelings... and if something goes wrong I can destroy that persons character... forever.”
Henry Marsh

Henry Marsh
“Healthy people, I have concluded, including myself, do not understand how everything changes once you have been diagnosed with a fatal illness. How you cling to hope, however false, however slight, and how reluctant most doctors are to deprive patients of that fragile beam of light in so much darkness. Indeed, many people develop what psychiatrists call ‘dissociation’ and a doctor can find himself talking to two people – they know that they are dying and yet still hope that they will live. I had noticed the same phenomenon with my mother during the last few days of her life. When faced by people who are dying you are no longer dealing with the rational consumers assumed by economic model-builders, if they ever existed in the first place.”
Henry Marsh, Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery

Henry Marsh
“And now all those brain cells are dead – and my mother – who in a sense was the complex electrochemical interaction of all these millions of neurons – is no more. In neuroscience it is called ‘the binding problem’ – the extraordinary fact, which nobody can even begin to explain, that mere brute matter can give rise to consciousness and sensation. I had such a strong sensation, as she lay dying, that some deeper, ‘real’ person was still there behind the death mask.”
Henry Marsh, Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery

Henry Marsh
“Life without hope is hopelessly difficult but at the end hope can so easily make fools of us all.”
Henry Marsh, Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery
