I still think my husband is bat-shit crazy for wanting to even attempt this -- I'm not far behind for even agreeing to help him.

I thought it was a wonderfully adventurous story. Sad, dark, but interesting. I would have enjoyed more in depth description of certain scenes and more development between some of the characters, but overall, I really enjoyed the book.

Donalyn Miller
“If you don't read, I don't know how to communicate with you...I can never express who I am in my own words as powerfully as my books can.”
Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

Stephen King
“The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there...”
Stephen King

Dr. Seuss
“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
Dr. Seuss

Rosamunde Pilcher
“Beyond the pain, life continues to be sweet. The basics are still there. Beauty, food and friendship, reservoirs of love and understanding. Later, possibly not yet, you are going to need others who will encourage you to make new beginnings. Welcome them. They will help you move on, to cherish happy memories and confront the painful ones with more than bitterness and anger.”
Rosamunde Pilcher, Winter Solstice

Cornelia Funke
“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.”
Cornelia Funke, Inkspell
