This book stirs a flurry of thoughts and emotions without directing them, which is both refreshing and maddening. There are three main characters: Leo: a failed bookstore owner, Mark: former room-mate of Leo and now successful self-help author and Le...more

Perhaps the best audio book that I've heard to date. Full actor dramatization is the way to go. Benedict Cumberbatch, Christopher Lee, James McAvoy and Neil Gaiman himself- pure delight.

A funny and sweet tale about a young girl coming to terms to living with her newly acquired disability, a hearing loss as a side effect from meningitis. What makes the book special is that each character has idiosyncrasies, for example, Cece wears a...more

This sweeping epic American tale has moments of brilliance and clarity which unfortunately get lost in seemingly endless sections of descriptions of plants, moss and botany.

So I went into this with not the highest expectations, and without knowing much about it other than some positive comments from people I trusted who (like me) didn't particularly like Eat, Pray, Love.

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“One can be in love with several people at the same time, feel the sorrow with each, and not betray any of them.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Sam Shepard
“I believe in my mask-- The man I made up is me
I believe in my dance-- And my destiny”
Sam Shepard

Ann Brashares
“You could feel things or you could find a way to shut down. But once you were feeling things, you couldn’t decide exactly what to feel. That was the trouble with letting them in at all. They made a mess of the place.”
Ann Brashares

John Irving
“Never confuse faith, or belief—of any kind—with something even remotely intellectual.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

Ernest Hemingway
“Love is just another dirty lie. Love is ergoapiol pills to make me come around because you were afraid to have a baby. Love is quinine and quinine and quinine until I'm deaf with it. Love is that dirty aborting horror that you took me to. Love is my insides all messed up. It's half catheters and half whirling douches. I know about love. Love always hangs up behind the bathroom door. It smells like lysol. To hell with love. Love is making me happy and then going off to sleep with your mouth open while I lie awake all night afraid to say my prayers even because I know I have no right to anymore. Love is all the dirty little tricks you taught me that you probably got out of some book. All right. I'm through with you and I'm through with love.”
Ernest Hemingway
