I've spent a couple hours today reading the latest mystery sensation, "The Girl on the Train," by Paula Hawkins. The novel, released last January, is still the number 1 best seller in Kindle's Paid list. I've reached pg 95, and calling it a day.

The novel's opening hit me with intensity: vigorous intriguing characters, and quite a suspenseful dramatic setting for the hopefully Gone-Girlesque mys... Read more of this blog post »

Max Connelly is on page 130 of 323 of The Girl on the Train: Anna walks to the podium and leaves without effect. Rachel hovers around Scott (who doesn't step up the stage- obviously, only women are given the privilege :). Pace doesn't pick up, and Rachel has stopped being intriguing, but I'm already hooked up :(
Hope it gets exciting soon.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“I’ll not be a hypocrite and dispute you over that. It’s the custom and culture that up brings us to what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s just easier to follow than to dispute.”
Max Connelly, Spy Hunt in Dixie

“This land carries people from different countries, different cultures, even different tongues, who even warred amongst themselves, but they are united over on only one cause; hate. The people of the Southern United States united in their hate against the free population of their previous slaves.”
Max Connelly, Spy Hunt in Dixie

“Abolishing centuries old traditions of the prosperous South, seemed to motivate their envious souls into annihilating what looked to the world, God’s Heaven on Earth.”
Max Connelly, Spy Hunt in Dixie
