The Koran by Michael A. Cook
"I've read two "A Very Short Introduction" books, both of which I had to do for college and would not have done on my own. Neither was very good but this one was by far the worst.

“A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.”
Caroline Gordon

Jeffrey Eugenides
“We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing which colors went together. We knew that the girls were our twins, that we all existed in space like animals with identical skins, and that they knew everything about us though we couldn’t fathom them at all. We knew, finally, that the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides

Boris Pasternak
“It's only in bad novels that people are divided into two camps and have nothing to do with each other. In real life everything gets mixed up! Don't you think you'd have to be a hopeless nonentity to play only one role all your life, to have only one place in society, always to stand for the same thing?--Ah, there you are!"
- Larissa Fyodorovna in Doctor Zhivago.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

John Green
“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
