Marcus Sedgwick has a knack for perfection. Frightening, unique, and well written: I fucking loved this book. It is precisely why I can't trust overall ratings.

Charles Bukowski
“there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody's asleep.
I say, I know that you're there,
so don't be
sad.
then I put him back,
but he's singing a little
in there, I haven't quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it's nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don't
weep, do
you?”
Charles Bukowski

Alice Sebold
“How to Commit the Perfect Murder" was an old game in heaven. I always chose the icicle: the weapon melts away.”
