"No, don't feed the ducks on campus! They will stalk you. It's interesting reading about American universities. My campus probably had more ibis as opposed to ducks." Aug 31, 2014 04:06AM

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
" I was born in a year made famous in literature by the great George Orwell, meaning that I've spent the 1980s either in diapers or too busy learning the secrets of navigating monkey bars and tying my own shoes (Velcro shoes have not yet made their... " Read more of this review »
Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews
" Each book in this series has been better than the last, and Magic Strikes was so excellent that it was going to be difficult just to match it. Magic Bleeds did take longer than the third book in the series to really hook me, but once it got going... " Read more of this review »

Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
" I stayed up to finish the last 200-or-so pages of this book. I think the reason why I gave it 5 stars is because of Gabaldon's research and ability to weave history and fact into the lives of her fictional - but very real - characters. Also becaus... " Read more of this review »

Charles Yu
“My father built a time machine and then he spent his whole life trying to figure out how to use it to get more time. He spent all the time he had with us thinking about how he wished he had more time, if he could only have more time.”
Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

Osamu Dazai
“It would seem that the more irresponsible and crafty one is, the more likely one is to have a talent for storytelling.”
Osamu Dazai, Blue Bamboo: Japanese Tales of Fantasy

Jhumpa Lahiri
“With the birth of Akash, in his sudden, perfect presence, Ruma had felt awe for the first time in her life. He still had the power to stagger her at times--simply the fact that he was breathing, that all his organs were in their proper places, that blood flowed quietly and effectively through his small, sturdy limbs. He was her flesh and blood, her mother had told her in the hospital the day Akash was born. Only the words her mother used were more literal, enriching the tired phrase with meaning: "He is made from your meat and bone." It had caused Ruma to acknowledge the supernatural in everyday life. But death, too, had the power to awe, she knew this now-that a human being could be alive for years and years, thinking and breathing and eating, full of a million worries and feelings and thoughts, taking up space in the world, and then, in an instant, become absent, invisible.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, Unaccustomed Earth

Delphine de Vigan
“Before I met No I thought that violence meant shouting and hitting and war and blood. Now I know that there can also be violence in silence and that it’s sometimes invisible to the naked eye. There’s violence in the time that conceals wounds, the relentless succession of days, the impossibility of turning back the clock. Violence is what
escapes us. It’s silent and hidden. Violence is what remains inexplicable, what stays forever opaque.”
Delphine de Vigan, No and Me

Joseph Campbell
“Eternity isn't some later time. Eternity isn't even a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now that all thinking in temporal terms cuts off.... the experience of eternity right here and now, in all things, whether thought of as good or as evil, is the function of life.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
