N is for Noose by Sue Grafton
"I have read nearly all Sue Grafton's books in this series and find that this is a little slower than the others and not nearly as exciting. The widow of a small town policeman asks Kinsey Millhone to find the reason for her husbands fretfulness an..." Read more of this review »

"N is for Nothing happens.

I gave this book two stars only for the writing style. Otherwise, there were no characters whom I could find interesting and the plot was not much eventful.

There were too many characters in this one, and most of them were underdeveloped and therefore not memorable. I had a hard time keeping track of who was who, although I can't say that it really mattered much to the book as a whole. I just felt like K ...more

Cute read - I was getting tired of books that are all about murder and mayhem and chaos so it was nice to read something light and fluffy for once! A puff pastry of a book!

Definitely not what I expected when I picked up a Patterson, but it was still entertaining. I enjoyed it, although I wouldn't say I couldn't put it down.

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

“Oh, she missed herself. It felt like she used to miss Abe, when he was at Harvard and then after they broke up. No, deeper than that: the way she sometimes missed her parents when she was a child and had slept over at a friend's. She was homesick for herself, a longing so deep and unanswerable that for a moment it took her breath away.”
Katharine Noel, Halfway House

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

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

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