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...more

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.

Frederick Buechner
“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid.”
Frederick Buechner, Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith

E.M. Forster
“A humanist has four leading characteristics - curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

E.M. Forster
“I am a Jane Austenite, and therefore slightly imbecile about Jane Austen. My fatuous expression, and airs of personal immunity—how ill they sit on the face, say, of a Stevensonian! But Jane Austen is so different. She is my favourite author! I read and reread, the mouth open and the mind closed. Shut up in measureless content, I greet her by the name of most kind hostess, while criticism slumbers.”
E.M. Forster

Charlotte Brontë
“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
