Wonderful, descriptive book about Egypt and the English there, searching for treasure, before, during and after the discovery of King Tut's tomb. Told from the point of view of a child who witnesses all. A lovely, drowsy read, perfect fro Do

I was really looking forward to this book--of course, it got so much publicity, one couldn't help but see it at the bookstore. Maybe after the great experiences of The Bone Clocks and Station Eleven, though, it was just a huge let down. It wasn't a t ...more

One of my most favorite books ever. Lovely writing and an intimate story of survival and love. Mandel has created a post apocalyptic novel that is like NO OTHER. This i no Hunger Games, no controlling government manipulating an desperate population. ...more

Definitely a great read. If you enjoyed Cloud Atlas, you will really love this one.

Mitchell once again is able to craft an intricate web of people, places and time to create a beautiful story about the world, and about things you would never be able

E.M. Forster
“Have you ever noticed that there are people who do things which are most indelicate, and yet at the same time - beautiful?”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“She would only point out the salvation that was latent in his own soul, and in the soul of every man. Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die.”
E.M. Forster, Howards End

E.M. Forster
“But this time I'm not to blame; I want you to believe that. I simply slipped into those violets. No, I want to be really truthful. I am a little to blame. The sky, you know, was gold, and the ground all blue, and for a moment he looked like some one in a book.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

Brennan Manning
“Real freedom is freedom from the opinions of others. Above all, freedom from your opinions about yourself. ”
