It's the second thing; I had already invested too much time and money to simply give up when I finally understood that I'm not cut for that profession at all. I lack all the ingredients a good lawyer must have. I'd be a terrible, terrible lawyer, a horrible prosecutor or a sad excuse for a judge.
But no worries, world, I won't ever try. :)(less)

Very intriguing read. It's an unusual book, written in alternate povs that also alternate voice within from second to third (maybe also first?) person, which makes it dynamic and engaging. Dustin is a fascinating character that definitely fools the r ...more

Lovely novel which tells about some terrible events during WWII but in an inspiring way.

Reminded me of Kate Morton's books.

Bonfire by Krysten Ritter
"Going into this book, I had no idea who Krysten Ritter was. It was only when I went to the Goodreads page just now that I realized she's an actress. So I had approached this as I would any hyped thriller with an enticingly fiery cover. Unfortunate..." Read more of this review »

Stephen King
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
Stephen King

Yvvette Edwards
“My relationship had ended and Red had taken my son. My life was my own and I could do anything I wanted, yet I felt nothing. As I stood staring at the walls, searching inside myself for some kind of emotional response, the nothingness suddenly welled up inside me, like a physical mass, so vast and empty and infinite I was terrified. The very first time I went running, it was from that terror, from the possibility of being sucked down into emptiness for ever, and as I ran I discovered I was able to feel; pressure in my lungs, pain in my legs, my skin perspiring, the pounding of my heart.
My routine was erratic, I ran when I felt like it, usually five or six times a month. So was my style. It was nothing like that of the runners I grew accustomed to seeing, the ones who regulated themselves, jogged two or three times a week, who did a warm-up first and stretching exercises afterwards, the people for whom the activity was a hobby. I ran like my life depended on it, as fast and as hard as I could. Sometimes, passers-by would look beyond me as I ran towards them, with fear in their eyes, trying to see who or what was pursuing me, trying to work out whether they should be running too. As long as I was feeling, I didn’t care.”
Yvvette Edwards, A Cupboard Full of Coats
