The book that held me hostage.

4.5 Exhilarating and Frenetic Stars


This is one of those books that "happened" for me. It reeled me in from the beginning. I tried to resist, tried to read something else, but even when we separated I couldn't stop thi..." Read more of this review »

I was really impressed with this book. It had a really intriguing history and world, incredibly engaging characters, and a compelling plot. It was one of those that didn't stop playing in my head when I had to pause my reading for mundane life. These...more

This was an ok book for me. A little too fluffy for my tastes, but fun for the historical aspect.

LdDurham and 13 other people liked Tina ~'s review of The Sergeant:
The Sergeant by Christa Tomlinson
"Couple of things before I start the actual review, which I'm going to spoiler tag because I don't want to tippy toe around things.

First, I had to come turn on my computer to write this review because I can't type fast enough on my iPad. And I'm th..." Read more of this review »

"***2.75 Trim the Fat Stars***

Between the blurb and cover, I couldn't wait to start this one!

And then I did....

Oscar Wilde
“The fact is, the public make use of the classics of a country as a means of checking the progress of Art. They degrade the classics into authorities. They use them as bludgeons for preventing the free expression of Beauty in new forms.”
Oscar Wilde

Anne-Louise-Germaine de Staël
“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.”
Anne-Louise-Germaine de Staël, Germany

John F. Kennedy
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
