I just finished Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon" (a smart man with a smart story) so I chose this book as "fluff" reading. I'm trying so hard not to compare Setterfield to Stephenson, that's just not fair to anyone. And I do like to read a bit of everything, including a gothic every now and then. But...this is tough-going. It's like reading "Love Story" after "Ulysses."

Waiting for the insane wife in the attic to drop by at this point. I mean there's gotta be something tying this together? RIGHT? RIGHT?

"And I sat on a felled tree to read it, because I never read standing up."

I feel like I'm going to cry or something soon :(

"I pushed my pile of papers to one side,...longing for the comfort of a story where everything had been planned well in advance, where the confusion of the middle was invented only for my enjoyment, and where I could measure how far away the solution was by feeling the thickness of pages still to come."

Oh if life was like that.

"Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes-characters even- caught in the fibers of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you."

Yes all the time.

"Half-dead, exiled in the world of the living by day, while at night, my soul cleaves to its twin in a shadowy limbo."

"He is gone into the dark night. We shall never see him more."

This line reminds me of the song by dido.
"My lovers gone. His boots no longer by my door. He left at dawn. And as I slept I felt him go. Returns no more."

So sad.

"I should have expected it. She was a spinner of yarns, wasn't she? A storyteller. A fabulist. A liar. And the plea that had so moved me- tell me the truth- had been uttered by a man who was not even real."

the plot thickens.

"Like flies in amber, like corpses frozen in ice, that which according to the laws of nature should pass away is, by the miracle of ink on paper, preserved. It is a kind of magic."

"People disappear when the die. Their voice, their laughter, the warmth of their breath. Their flesh. Eventually their bones. All living memory of them ceases. This is both dreadful and natural. Yet for some there is an exception to this annihilation. For in the books they write they continue to exist."

"What good is truth, at midnight, in the dark, when the wind is roaring like a bear in the chimney? When the lightning strikes shadows on the bedroom wall and the rain taps at the window with its long fingernails? No. When fear and cold make a statue of you in your bed, don't expect hard-boned and fleshless truth to come running to your aid. What you need are the plump comforts of a story."

Jeziva atmosfera... ja uvijek imam "problem" sa knjigama i filmovima koji prikazuju djecu u nekoj psiho - horor varijanti. Brrrrrrrr
