I'm giving up on the audio at 4 parts into a 10-part book. I truly can't stand these characters and I've decided life is too short. I had the same reaction to Gone Girl so there must be something to all of the comparisons between the two books.

John Steinbeck
“But from the start I had withheld from him any information about the giant redwoods. It seemed to me that a Long Island poodle who had made his devoirs to Sequoia sempervirens or Sequoia gigantea might be set apart from other dogs--might even be like that Galahad who saw the Grail. The concept is staggering.”

“When he talked politics, it was with me, or my sister, pointing a steady and patient finger at us, saying, “I don’t care about left or right. It’s all nonsense. All I ask of you is this: Be kind. Be decent. And don’t be greedy.”
Nickolas Butler, Shotgun Lovesongs

“This is my home. This is the place that first believed in me. That still believes in me.”
Nickolas Butler, Shotgun Lovesongs

Mario Vargas Llosa
“Why did you spend your whole life working in an insurance company? You should have been a painter, a musician, well, I don't know. Why didn't you follow your calling?"

Don Rigoberto nodded and reflected a moment before answering.

"Because I was a coward, son," he finally murmured. "Because I lacked faith in myself. I never believed I had the talent to be a real artist. But maybe that was an excuse for not trying. I decided not to be a creator but only a consumer of art, a dilettante of culture. Because I was a coward is the sad truth. So now you know. Don't follow my example. Whatever your calling is, follow it as far as you can and don't do what I did, don't betray it.”
Mario Vargas Llosa
