I love Rainbow Rowell. Love her. I hesitate to say I may even love her more than John Green as far as YA lit goes. Every book I read of hers is totally different- but all with themes of love and understanding and nostalgia! The nostalgia! This book h ...more

Very well written, compelling and mysterious. Also brutal and graphic in the description of Vietnam and repercussions of being a soldier, as it should be, although I had to skim these parts after a bit. Interesting view on politics and the toll on re ...more

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”

“Society is like a stew. If you don't stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top.”
Edward Abbey

Edward Abbey
“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
Edward Abbey
