**Revised Review**
The more I think about this book, the more I dislike it. The problem isn't that it's bad but that it could be so much better. I'm not changing the stars but it's more like a 2 1/2 star book.**

This had so many great parts. The charac

I read this for a class and, while it worked well for that subject, I thought it was just okay as a book I'd choose to read on my own. The book is in three sections and I like each section but I don't think they worked all that well together. Martha' ...more

I probably wouldn't have finished this if it wasn't required reading for a class. There's good material in it, particularly if you're taking a class on the difference between being British and English. If you're not taking such a class, there's also ...more

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

Ayn Rand
“A government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.”
Ayn Rand

John Steinbeck
“We all have that heritage, no matter what old land our fathers left. All colors and blends of Americans have somewhat the same tendencies. It's a breed - selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful - we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time frightened of strangers. We boast and are impressed. We're oversentimental and realistic. We are mundane and materialistic - and do you know of any other nation that acts for ideals? We eat too much. We have no taste, no sense of proportion. We throw our energy about like waste. In the old lands they say of us that we go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening culture. Can it be that our critics have not the key or the language of our culture.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

John Steinbeck
“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Ray Bradbury
“I don't believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously."

[Writer’s Digest Interview (Robert Jacobs, Writer’s Digest, February 1976)]”
Ray Bradbury
