Kollhnís by Arndís Þórarinsdóttir
"Undursamlega falleg saga. Snerti hjartastrengina mína og ég elskaði hverja mínútu af lestrinum. Hinsvegar veit ég ekki endilega hvort hún nær til barna eða unglinga eins og hún náði til mín."

Fairy Tale by Stephen King
"2 1/2 stars. This was... fine.

Whenever I review a new King book, I get asked by some people whether this would be a good place to start for newcomers to King. It's usually a difficult question, but here I can answer easily: no. Fairy Tale isn't bad, " Read more of this review »

“Risastór stjarna, miklu stærri en við getum ímyndað okkur, sprakk í þúsund, milljón mola. Rykið úr henni þeyttist á methraða út um allt og lét ekkert stoppa sig – svolítið eins og Íslendingar á útsölu!”
Ævar Þór Benediktsson, Gestir utan úr geimnum

“Það er alltaf ljótt að gera grín að fólki – jafnvel þótt það sé bara að reyna að lyfta ketti.”
Ævar Þór Benediktsson, Þín eigin goðsaga

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut
