I am not sure who writes these reviews, but I found the book very slow in the beginning (NOT "fast-paced"). It did get very interesting, but there was no (or very little) thought (discussion) given to the rightness or wrongness of actions made by the ...more

I enjoyed the book quite a bit, although the "proofs" accepted by the characters did not see conclusive to me.

Certainly a dark and compelling book, and good in a rather awful way.

A compelling book about the horrors of capitalism and its negative effects on the lives of anyone who tried to stand in its path. The book is personal and personable, but definitely NOT cheery. It begins with a gruesome murder of a beautiful young wo ...more

“I had always thought that life was the actual thing, the natural thing, and that death was simply the end of living. Now, in this lifeless place, I saw with a terrible clarity that death was the constant, death was the base, and life was only a short, frgile dream. I was dead already. I had been born death, and what I thought was my life was just a game death let me play as it waited to take me. . .

Death has an opposite, but the opposite is not mere living. It is not courage or faith or human will. The opposite of death is love. How had I missed that? How does anyone miss that? Love is our only weapon. Only love can turn mere life into a miracle, and draw precious meaning from suffering and fear. For a brief, magical moment, all my fears lifted, and I knew that I would not let death control me. I would walk through the godforsaken country that separated me from my home with love and hope in my heart. I wouuld walk until I had walked all the life out of me, and when I fell I would die that much closer to my father.”
Nando Parrado, Miracle in the Andes

Pat Barker
“Half the world's work's done by hopeless neurotics.”
Pat Barker, The Eye in the Door

Tennessee Williams
“I don't believe anyone ever suspects how completely unsure I am of my work and myself and what tortures of self-doubting the doubt of others has always given me.”
Tennessee Williams

Mother Teresa
“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
Mother Teresa

Cynthia Lord
“Stay because you want to be here. Stay because we would miss you. And stay because you can belong in more than one place, and one of your places is with us.”
