The Confessions of Young Nero by Margaret George

The best summary of this book's flaws come from the USA Today review of it:

In short, it’s a city you’ll believe — filled, unfortunately, with people you won’t.

Margaret George clearly did a lot of research. This book is full of window dressing about l

Stephanie added a status update: I know my reviews have been pissy lately. I'm having bad luck with books.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
"Five stars for Atwood's writing, but I can't say I really enjoyed re-reading this.

I first read The Handmaid's Tale in college. We were assigned it in an English class called Propaganda & Rhetoric. I was an advertising major, and yet I hated th..." Read more of this review »

Nora McInerny Purmort
“You won’t do it because you are Superwoman, you’ll do it because it’s your life, and there is nobody who can live it for you.”
Nora McInerny Purmort, It's Okay to Laugh

Jon Krakauer
“In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. Secrecy and silence are the perpetrator’s first line of defense. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure that no one listens. To this end, he marshals an impressive array of arguments, from the most blatant denial to the most sophisticated and elegant rationalization. After every atrocity one can expect to hear the same predictable apologies: it never happened; the victim lies; the victim exaggerates; the victim brought it upon herself; and in any case it is time to forget the past and move on. The more powerful the perpetrator, the greater is his prerogative to name and define reality, and the more completely his arguments prevail. JUDITH LEWIS HERMAN Trauma and Recovery”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Cat Winters
“But this is not the fantastical land of liberty that people portray in stories. The melting pot does nothing but scald and blister right now.”
Cat Winters, The Uninvited

Parker Peevyhouse
“He felt Quinn shift in the dirt next to him. “You’re wrong, you know,” she said. “People don’t change you. They can’t, because you’re never one thing to begin with.”

“They do. They do terrible things and you go to pieces. You can be put together again.”

She brushed a hand over this forehead, light as a falling leaf. “That’s what people are. Just all different pieces”
Parker Peevyhouse, Where Futures End

Emily St. John Mandel
“But the trouble, is she doesn’t really care. There was a time when this conversation would have reduced her to tears, but now she swivels in her chair to look out at the lake and thinks about moving trucks. She could call in sick to work, pack up her things, and be gone in a few hours. It is sometimes necessary to break everything.”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven
