This book is such a pleasure to read, even if it is a bit melancholy.

This is a story about a man who is in pursuit of 'dignity' and all that it entails. It is up to the reader to determine whether he achieves this goal, and, if so, at what cost.

I found this book to be incredibly riveting at the beginning but then after the first half, it was a bit of a struggle to get through. The reason? There are no likable characters in this entire story. At all.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
" This book is actually so fucked up, that I just couldn't put it down -- especially for the second half. God that ending sucked though!

Longer review to come, because it is literally going to be impossible to review this without spoilers.

Annaleise
Annaleise is on page 150 of 395 of Gone Girl: Both Amy and Nick are irritating the hell out of me. How can two people be so self-absorbed without imploding?!

“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Khaled Hosseini
“That same night, I wrote my first short story. It took me thirty minutes. It was a dark little tale about a man who found a magic cup and learned that if he wept into the cup, his tears turned into pearls. But even though he had always been poor, he was a happy man and rarely shed a tear. So he found ways to make himself sad so that his tears could make him rich. As the pearls piled up, so did his greed grow. The story ended with the man sitting on a mountain of pearls, knife in hand, weeping helplessly into the cup with his beloved wife's slain body in his arms.”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
