Maybe 5 stars = "amazing!" is pushing it a little, but I more than "really liked it".

I'm not the intended audience / age group but it was featured by the library when I logged in via overdrive as one of those "hey we're all reading it" kinds of thin

I probably wouldn't have finished this book if a friend hadn't loaned it AND the movie to me, and wanted to be able to talk about them (and he anticipated I'd be able to read it all quick-like in one sitting). It's not that I hated it, but my attenti ...more

Perfect. Flawless. Perfect timing, reading it now. The kind of book that will be / would have been perfect to read in a shit-ton of different times/centuries and places.

I'm happy about the roundabout order I've been reading Ishiguro's books; you'd ex

Trixie Fontaine added a status update: A perfect day off in summer = total solitude, the first grey skies in so many days it feels like weeks, and checking out way more books from the library than I can possibly finish by the time they come due.

Daphne du Maurier
“But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.”
Daphne du Maurier

Judy Balan
“Comedy is hard work. People expect you to be funny 24/7. So if you're not constantly cracking up your friends, it can hurt you professionally. They may not read your book or come to your show. 'She's a comedian? She's not that funny!' It's unfair 'cause when cardio surgeon friends say they cut chests open and hold hearts in their hands, everyone just takes their word for it.”
Judy Balan

Alasdair Gray
“Her book was filled with centaurs because she had not fully grasped the complexity of actual people, actual horses.”
Alasdair Gray, Every Short Story, 1951-2012

Colson Whitehead
“She recognizes the cramped handwriting, the internecine, slashing script. She has studied it under the gaze of the Institute Librarian, in locked rooms -- she even, in the early, giddy days of her conversion, practiced Fulton's handwriting for hours. Knows the ink. . . . Here it is now, on the familiar notebook paper Fulton preferred. She tracked down the manufacturer once; they have a plant across the river where they still turn out the Fontaine line.”
Colson Whitehead

Joyce Carol Oates
“. . . there is a wish in the heart of mankind to be distracted and confused. Truth is but one attraction, and not always the most powerful.”
Joyce Carol Oates
