Dar and 1 other person liked Jennifer's review of My Antonia:
My Antonia by Willa Cather
"I loved this. Almost a five star for me - 4 1/2. I don’t mean to diminish this by saying it is Little House on the Prairie for adults. But it does have the same sense of adventure and descriptions of frontier life. And the cold!!! I couldn’t imagi..." Read more of this review »

Salman Rushdie
“Nobody has the right to not be offended. That right doesn't exist in any declaration I have ever read.

If you are offended it is your problem, and frankly lots of things offend lots of people.

I can walk into a bookshop and point out a number of books that I find very unattractive in what they say. But it doesn't occur to me to burn the bookshop down. If you don't like a book, read another book. If you start reading a book and you decide you don't like it, nobody is telling you to finish it.

To read a 600-page novel and then say that it has deeply offended you: well, you have done a lot of work to be offended.”
Salman Rushdie

Philip Pullman
“We don’t need a list of rights and wrongs, tables of dos and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. Thou shalt not is soon forgotten, but Once upon a time lasts forever.”
Philip Pullman

John Hodgman
“Stories make sense when so much around us is senseless, and perhaps what makes them most comforting is that while life goes on and pain goes on, stories do us the favor of ending.”
John Hodgman
