Rachelle and 4 other people liked Charles Hatfield's review of Big Questions:
Big Questions by Anders Nilsen
"In this eerily post-9/11 fable, a plane crash, an unexploded bomb, and the wanderings of two men—one the downed Pilot, the other a preverbal Idiot, i.e., either an imbecile or a saint—disrupt the lives of a motley community of animals, most partic..." Read more of this review »

Get Jiro! by Anthony Bourdain

This book was funny, smart, and stylish. The idea of a society built on food culture was both tantalizing and terrifying. But the book falters about halfway through with a few underdeveloped characters and a somewhat nonsensical ending. Worth a read, ...more

Get Jiro! by Anthony Bourdain
"After reading this review on Tor.com (and discovering that I've been eating my nigiri sub-optimally for years), I decided I had to read this book, with its tongue-in-cheek premise and the promise of revealing to me the secrets of sushi etiquette...." Read more of this review »

Loved the artwork and loved the story, though I thought the "Twilight Zone"-y nature of the story was a little unnecessary. The artwork is somewhat crude, which made the characters and the setting feel more real. The plot itself took a relatable, fam ...more

Meh. If you want a chilling and eerie story, read the original novel. If you want to see the story come to life while maintaining its creepy tone, watch the movie. The artwork in this graphic novel adaptation was bland and didn't capture the tone of ...more

Flannery O'Connor
“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air, I am he that walks unseen.

I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number.

I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me.

I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Flannery O'Connor
“Your criticism sounds to me as if you have read too many critical books and are too smart in an artificial, destructive, and very limited way.”
Flannery O'Connor, The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor

Lemony Snicket
“Wicked people never have time for reading. It's one of the reasons for their wickedness.”
Lemony Snicket

C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
