2.5 out of 10

Well hell. Such an interesting concept, such a lame outcome. Santa Barbara, martyrdom, science without science. I know that this book isn't that bad, but I didn't enjoy it even for a bit, so 1-GR-star is all I have to give it.

Viva la vagina. Хватит замалчивать скрытые возможности органа... by Nina Brochmann

Not a groundbreaking piece of literature, but the one people (not only girls or women) should read at school to avoid absorbing misconceptions about their bodies.

Viva la vagina (for some reason, the title made me smile every time I saw it on the

Seems like I liked it... maybe in a day or two I'll lower my rating to 3 GR-stars, but at this moment it's a 4-star-read. Fast-paced, thrilling, but confusing at some places. Too bad I've read all two books by Cristin Terrill. Dera Cr..." Read more of this review »

While the original title of the book is very on point, I prefer the one the Russian publisher chose —Kind Regards: Business Correspondence in English. It perfectly captures the essence of all those "looking forward to hearing from you"/"best ...more

Stephen Chbosky
“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn't stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Melina Marchetta
“It's funny how you can forget everything except people loving you. Maybe that's why humans find it so hard getting over love affairs. It's not the pain they're getting over, it's the love.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

Alfred Tennyson
“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Idylls of the King and a Selection of Poems

Oscar Wilde
“It often happens that the real tragedies of life occur in such
an inartistic manner that they hurt us by their crude violence, their
absolute incoherence, their absurd want of meaning, their entire lack
of style. They affect us just as vulgarity affects us. They give us
an impression of sheer brute force, and we revolt against that.
Sometimes, however, a tragedy that possesses artistic elements of
beauty crosses our lives. If these elements of beauty are real, the
whole thing simply appeals to our sense of dramatic effect. Suddenly
we find that we are no longer the actors, but the spectators of the
play. Or rather we are both. We watch ourselves, and the mere wonder
of the spectacle enthralls us.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

S.E. Hinton
“Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold.”
S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders
