"I am listening to this as an audio book. The parts where the author talks about his own life are interesting, but the sections where he speaks about artists and authors who he admires feel a bit to much like a University Lecture to me." Jul 03, 2014 09:48AM

I must say I enjoyed this book much more than I expected. The whole story has a feel of fun and adventure, even while the main character is imprisoned, attacked, hiding, starving, and outcast.

Mark Twain
“When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.”
Mark Twain

“Bill C-9 was supposed to be a budget bill, but it came with innumerable measures that had little or nothing to do with the nation's finances. It was, as critics put it, the advance of the Harper agenda by stealth, yet another abuse of the democratic process. The bill was a behemoth. It was 904 pages, with 23 separate sections and 2,208 individual clauses....

As a Reform MP, [Stephen Harper] .... said of one piece of legislation that 'the subject matter of the bill is so diverse that a single vote on the content would put members in conflict with their own principles.' The bill he referred to was 21 page long -- or 883 pages shorter than the one he was now putting before Parliament.”
Lawrence Martin, Harperland: The Politics of Control

“no one would ever demand compensation to keep people alive. You make us sound like monsters, as if people wouldn’t help others unless they got something out of it.”
