I thought it was pretty interesting. I've never read Hemingway (other than The Old Man and the Sea), but I might try A Movable Feast to read his perspective on his first marriage.

Great book! Very spooky. I didn't really 'get' the ending, though. I don't know that I could explain what was actually happening in the end - the pieces didn't all fit together for me.

Salman Rushdie
“...that witchcraft requires no potions, familiar spirits, or magic wands. Language upon a silver tongue affords enchantment enough.”
Salman Rushdie, The Enchantress Of Florence

John Green
“I thought of my dad telling me that the universe wants to be noticed but what we want is to be noticed by the universe, to have the universe give a shit what happens to us- not the collective idea of sentient life but each of us as individuals.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“There's no such thing as dead languages, only dormant minds.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

John Fowles
“It's like the day you realize dolls are dolls. I pick up my old self and I see it's silly. A toy I've played with too often. It's a little sad, like an old golliwog at the bottom of the cupboard. Innocent and used-up and proud and silly.”
John Fowles, The Collector
