Very interesting premise, although a bit depressing at times. Definitely enjoyed the book, though.

I enjoyed it. It wasn't like I couldn't put it down, but it was fine. I wouldn't actively seek out anything by this author again.

Ugh, too predictable and sappy. Maris was an easily-manipulated idiot. Definitely not my favorite book by Brown

Diane and 2 other people liked Linda's review of Lottery:
Lottery by Patricia Wood
"The first word that comes to my mind after reading Lottery is "cute". Not that that's a bad thing. Although it's not a deep and introspective book, it is enjoyable, although more than a tad unrealistic. The story tells of a young, mentally challen..." Read more of this review »

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

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

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
“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
