Very different from my usual fare: the grittiness of post-apocalyptic or sci-fi worlds typically depress me, but I was interested enough by what I saw of the movie adaptation to give the audiobook a go. On the whole I enjoyed it as a casual listen, ...more

“God has arranged strange ways for some of us to find him. Sometimes He brings us on long physical journeys; sometimes He leaves us at home and makes the journey internal. Yours has been both. You have gone a long way and struggled a great deal, but I can see from your eyes that it was not for nothing.”
Abigail J. Hartman, The Soldier's Cross

“History pays no heed to the unspectacular citizen who worked hard all day and walked at night to a humble home with dust on his tunic and his flat cap. But in the end the builders have had the better of it. The miracles they accomplished in stone are still standing and still beautiful, even with the disintegration of so many centuries on them, but the battlefields where great warriors died are so encroached upon by modern villas and so befouled by the rotting remains of motorcars and the staves of oil barrels that they do not always repay a visit.”
Thomas B. Costain

“I was thinking, that when my time comes, I should be sorry if the only plea I had to offer was that of justice. Because it might mean that only justice would be meted out to me.”
Agatha Christie, Murder at the Vicarage

“That is our Shield Ring, our last stronghold; not the barrier fells and the totter-moss between, but something in the hearts of men.”
Rosemary Sutcliff, The Shield Ring

“I ended my first book with the words 'no answer.' I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice? Only words, words; to be led out to battle against other words.”
C. S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

“Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passin'.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Abigail Hartman Actually, a lot of the books I have read are not on my Goodreads bookshelf. I didn't want to swamp my followers with book-dumps, so I haven't added every single book I've read to my collection (like C.S. Lewis, for example). But The Spanish Brothers is a great book, isn't it? It's one of my favorite Lamplighters.


Hannah Abigail, you were the one who convinced me to take the effort and time to read The Spanish Brothers with your strong urging, yet it's not on your bookshelf!

(By the way, THANK YOU! :D)
