Mere’s Recent Updates

Mere Rain and 128 other people liked s.penkevich's review of The Waves:
The Waves by Virginia Woolf
"Probably my favorite book ever written. The 'waves' become a compound metaphor of sheer brilliance; we are all a harmony in the chorus of life, a part of a whole but each an individual part of beauty equally beautiful in solidarity as the whole. I wi" Read more of this review »
Secret Window, Secret Garden by Stephen King
"
There is something very reassuringly King about this novella. A quintessentially King short story, which concludes in typical Kingy fashion. However, I didn't like how it ended; I didn't like the ending at all. And it's all about the endings. Good th" Read more of this review »
Mere Rain and 248 other people liked Nilufer Ozmekik's review of Dear Child:
Dear Child by Romy Hausmann
"After ten minutes long silence I started another ten minutes long ovation for this book! It’s brilliant, intense, dark, gripping, character-driven, shocking and also terrifying, nightmarish, high tension, scary, thought-provoking story with lots of t" Read more of this review »
Mere Rain and 2 other people liked Figgy's status update
Figgy
Figgy is on page 83 of 343 of Dear Child: ‘They’re your children. I’m your husband. We are a happy family.’
‘Those aren’t my children,’ the distorted voice whimpered.
‘We’re a happy family. I’m your husband,’ he kept saying. ‘I’m your husband and they are your children. You don’t have anybody anymore, apart from us. You’ll feel better when you understand that.’

Claes Oldenburg
“I am for an art that imitates the human, that is comic, if necessary, or violent, or whatever is necessary. I am for an art that takes its form from the lines of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweet and stupid as life itself.”
Claes Oldenburg
