The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows
" The problem isn't the length, it's the lack of quality. "
Suzanne and 25 other people liked Victoria's review of The Truth According to Us:
The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows
"This book could have used some serious editing--as in cutting at least 150 pages--and more diligent focus on characters, narrative and plot. As you’ll note from the description, the author was partly responsible for The Guernsey Literary Society,..." Read more of this review »

All the Light We Can Not See:a Novel is an awful title for a great book. This is a very sensual book. No, not sexy, sensual. Would you rather be deaf or blind? Lose your arms or your legs? Not notice the difference between between a chocolate and a p ...more

Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

Alexandre Dumas-fils
“The difference between genius and stupidity is: genius has its limits.”
Alexandre Dumas-fils

John Steinbeck
“In literary criticism the critic has no choice but to make over the victim of his attention into something the size and shape of himself.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Francine Prose
“People see everything through the lens of their obsessions.”
Francine Prose, Goldengrove

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Historical fact: People stopped being people in 1913. That was the year Henry Ford put his cars on rollers and made his workers adopt the speed of the assembly line. At first, workers rebelled. They quit in droves, unable to accustom their bodies to the new pace of the age. Since then, however, the adaptation has been passed down: we've all inherited it to some degree, so that we plug right into joy-sticks and remotes, to repetitive motions of a hundred kinds.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

Marguerite Duras
“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.”
Marguerite Duras
