Karina Westermann and 34 other people liked Emily's review of The Martian:
The Martian by Andy Weir
"This simply wasn't the book for me - which is strange, because on the surface it was EXACTLY the book for me. I love lots of things that were included in this book, like high-stakes astronomy, life-or-death science problems, diaries of marooned tr..." Read more of this review »
Karina Westermann and 195 other people liked Thomas's review of The Martian:
The Martian by Andy Weir
"How many exclamation points can you shove into one book?

Time to start off 2015 with an unpopular opinion: I did not like how Andy Weir wrote The Martian. He writes science well, and his background in research and technical prose shows, but by page..." Read more of this review »

Lots of research went into this book and it's excellent in that way. The writing is just .. clunky and I'm a reader that notices stuff like that, unfortunately. I found this deadly dull. "And then I .. and then I.." (and then I skimmed).

Karen Armstrong
“We are meaning-seeking creatures. Dogs, as far as we know, do not agonise about the canine condition, worry about the plight of dogs in other parts of the world, or try to see their lives from a different perspective. But human beings fall easily into despair, and from the very beginning we invented stories that enabled us to place our lives in a larger setting, that revealed an underlying pattern, and gave us a sense that, against all the depressing and chaotic evidence to the contrary, life had meaning and value”
Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth

Robert Macfarlane
“As the pen rises from the page between words, so the walker's feet rise and fall between paces, and as the deer continues to run as it bounds from the earth and the dolphin continues to swim even as it leaps again and again from the sea, so writing and wayfaring are continuous activities, a running stitch, a persistence of the same seam or stream.”
Robert Macfarlane, The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot

A.C. Grayling
“To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries.”
A.C. Grayling

A.S. Byatt
“They took to silence. They touched each other without comment and without progression. A hand on a hand, a clothed arm, resting on an arm. An ankle overlapping an ankle, as they sat on a beach, and not removed. One night they fell asleep, side by side... He slept curled against her back, a dark comma against her pale elegant phrase.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession

Gilles Deleuze
“Writing has nothing to do with meaning. It has to do with landsurveying and cartography, including the mapping of countries yet to come.”
Gilles Deleuze
