Hmm...I am not entirely sure what I feel about this book. On one hand, I acknowledge how well written it is, what a brilliant page turner it is that it made me finish it in one day but on the other hand, I am left going, "But what was it all for?"

John Wyndham
“It must be, I thought, one of the race's most persistent and comforting hallucinations to trust that "it can't happen here" -- that one's own time and place is beyond cataclysm.”
John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids

Jane Austen
“It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Justin Cronin
“We live, we die. Somewhere along the way, if we're lucky, we may find someone to help lighten the load.”
Justin Cronin, The Passage

Charlotte Brontë
“I have now been married ten years. I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest - blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband's life as fully as he is mine. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am: ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. I know no weariness of my Edward's society: he knows none of mine, any more than we each do the pulsation of the heart that beats in our separate bosoms; consequently, we are ever together. To be together is for us to be at once free as in solitude, as gay as in company. We talk, I believe, all day long: to talk to each other is but more animated and an audible thinking. All my confidence is bestowed on him, all his confidence is devoted to me; we are precisely suited in character - perfect concord is the result.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

John Wyndham
“There is an inability to sustain the tragic mood, a phoenix quality of the mind. It may be helpful or harmful, it is just a part of the will to survive—yet, also, it has made it possible for us to engage in one weakening war after another. But it is a necessary part of our mechanism that we should be able to cry only for a time over even an ocean of spilt milk—the spectacular must soon become the commonplace if life is to be supportable.”
John Wyndham
