"Best book of the year. Definitely now in my top five of all time. When I'm reading an exceptionally good book and I'm thinking of the review I'm going to write, I always think of these tremendously funny and intelligent and witty things to say. Then " Read more of this review »

"I have to lead with one thing: this was one of the best books I have read in a long time and is my #1 read for 2016. No other novel this year has grabbed me from page 1 and killed more hours in a day than BR. The characters are vastly different than " Read more of this review »

Heavy grimdark with a bright splash of heart.

This novel is incredible. The characters are complex, the magic system is (quite literally) insane, and the story is so damned creative.

I couldn't put this one down, and I can't wait to read more of Fletch

Quotes by Steven Raaymakers  (?)

“She was beautiful beyond words, but not only that. Saranna was sharp as a knife. She'd have you guessing what you had said, then have you say it again in completely the opposite way, till you had made such a mess you didn't know what the discussion was about in the first place. Many found this unladylike, but only because they couldn't win against her. All except me. We would spar with words as men did with swords." ~ Velran”
Steven Raaymakers, A Canticle for the Fallen

“We must all have a purpose," he said. "I go to find mine.”
Steven Raaymakers, A Canticle for the Fallen

“Are warchildren so frightening? Are we not human, too?”
Steven Raaymakers, A Canticle for the Fallen

“‎That's when you know you've found somebody really special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably share silence.”
Quentin Tarantino, Pulp Fiction: A Quentin Tarantino Screenplay

“You know how they say you only hurt the ones you love? Well, it works both ways.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

“The closer men came to perfecting for themselves a paradise, the more impatient they became with it, and with themselves as well. They made a garden of pleasure, and became progressively more miserable with it as it grew in richness and power and beauty; for then, perhaps, it was easier to see something was missing in the garden, some tree or shrub that would not grow. When the world was in darkness and wretchedness, it could believe in perfection and yearn for it. But when the world became bright with reason and riches, it began to sense the narrowness of the needle's eye, and that rankled for a world no longer willing to believe or yearn.”
Walter M. Miller Jr., A Canticle for Leibowitz

“To minimize suffering and to maximize security were natural and proper ends of society and Caesar. But then they became the only ends, somehow, and the only basis of law—a perversion. Inevitably, then, in seeking only them, we found only their opposites: maximum suffering and minimum security.”
Walter M. Miller Jr., A Canticle for Leibowitz
