I first read this about 8 years ago, a little after it came out. I remember hating it at the time, though I adored McEwan's writing otherwise. I picked this up again because the trailer for the new movie looked so good, and couldn't understand why I ...more
The Heather Blazing by Colm Tóibín
"In his first novel set entirely in Enniscorthy, Colm Tóibín tells the tale of a high court judge, Eamon, living in late 20th century Ireland. I feel that this would be his hardest novel to get into if the reader isn't Irish or unless you have stra..." Read more of this review »

En attendant Godot by Samuel Beckett
"ACT III

VLADIMIR: They've called us back.

ESTRAGON: For an encore?

VLADIMIR: No, we're supposed to say what it means.

The Story of Music by Howard Goodall

So many difficult concepts easily explained, all with interesting facts, a gripping narrative and written with personality. I think I watched the TV series a few years ago, and will have to rewatch it, just to 'hear' all that I read.

“Whether we are trying to buy a packet of chips or getting to know a person for a potentially important relationship, its nice to have an overview of what it/he/she contains. - Of A Sense of Self”
Amrita Sarkar

“Nearly every inspirational story out there is about a person who breaks away from his or her background or community – where the best is clearly defined and is not them – and goes off and becomes the best somewhere else. - Of Effortless Effort”
Amrita Sarkar, Of Opinions

“You know, it's hard work to write a book. I can't tell you how many times I really get going on an idea, then my quill breaks. Or I spill ink all over my writing tunic.”
Ellen DeGeneres, The Funny Thing Is...

“Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.”
Langston Hughes, The Collected Poems

“Everybody else is working to change, persuade, tempt and control them. The best readers come to fiction to be free of all that noise.”
Philip Roth

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

“I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.”
Nadezhda Mandelstam, Hope Against Hope
