Thank goodness for this book. I was so disappointed with the last 2 books I had read, this one was a blessing.

Many people probably consider this an easy read and not that deep etc etc but it was so nice to read something that I could understand and t...more

I guess I'm just not smart enough to get this book. Almost all if the stories just ended with so many questions and no conclusions. I didn't get that an SG was a semplica girl and was Mike a drug addict? Was that an intervention? I just didn't get it...more

This book was just too long. Not that a big book intimidates me, or that I am too lazy to read it. This particular book was in need of some major editing. There were so many parts that could have been cut out, and simplified because all the extra wor...more

Neil Gaiman
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Albert Camus
“Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
Albert Camus

Albert Einstein
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”

Tori Amos
“On bad days I talk to Death constantly, not about suicide because honestly that's not dramatic enough. Most of us love the stage and suicide is definitely your last performance and being addicted to the stage, suicide was never an option - plus people get to look you over and stare at your fatty bits and you can't cross your legs to give that flattering thigh angle and that's depressing. So we talk. She says things no one else seems to come up with, like let's have a hotdog and then it's like nothing's impossible.

She told me once there is a part of her in everyone, though Neil believes I'm more Delirium than Tori, and Death taught me to accept that, you know, wear your butterflies with pride. And when I do accept that, I know Death is somewhere inside of me. She was the kind of girl all the girls wanted to be, I believe, because of her acceptance of "what is." She keeps reminding me there is change in the "what is" but change cannot be made till you accept the "what is.”
Tori Amos, Death: The High Cost of Living
