This series is an excellent example of high fantasy, strong rooted to Tolkien's work, with a fantas ...more "

"I began to walk slowly, deeply bemused, and to describe to myself in words this whole quarter of Alexandria for I knew that soon it would be forgotten and revisited only by those whose memories had been appropriated by the fevered city, clinging to the minds of old men like traces of perfume upon a sleeve: Alexandria, the capital of Memory."

Sotiris Karaiskos and 27 other people liked Giannis's review of Ο δρόμος:
Ο δρόμος by Cormac McCarthy
"Το σκοτεινότερο βιβλίο που έχω διαβάσει τα τελευταία χρόνια. Από την αρχή καταλαβαίνει κανείς πως θα διαβάσει για μία απέλπιδα ιστορία δύο καταραμένων χαρακτήρων, σε μία ατέλειωτη περιπλάνηση. Ένας πατέρας με το γιο του, από τους τελευταίους κατοί..." Read more of this review »

Malala Yousafzai
“Let us pick up our books and our pens,” I said. “They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.”
Malala Yousafzai, I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Patrick Rothfuss
“If you want to write a fantasy story with Norse gods, sentient robots, and telepathic dinosaurs, you can do just that. Want to throw in a vampire and a lesbian unicorn while you're at it? Go ahead. Nothing's off limits. But the endless possibility of the genre is a trap. It's easy to get distracted by the glittering props available to you and forget what you're supposed to be doing: telling a good story. Don't get me wrong, magic is cool. But a nervous mother singing to her child at night while something moves quietly through the dark outside her house? That's a story. Handled properly, it's more dramatic than any apocalypse or goblin army could ever be.”
Patrick Rothfuss

“I am not apt to follow blindly the lead of other men”

Robert Jordan
“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.”
Robert Jordan

“I care for no man on earth, and no man on earth cares for me.”
