Sadie by Courtney Summers

But love is complicated, it’s messy. It can inspire selflessness, selfishness, our greatest accomplishments and our hardest mistakes. It brings us together and it can just as easily drive us apart. It can drive us.
Have you heard the Sadie audiobook? I loved writing West’s final monologue; there was something about it that was both cathartic and unsettling at the same time. Cathartic, because he packages Sadie’s grim and heartbreaking story so beautifully. Unsettling for the exact same reason—he’s packaged Sadie’s story. BUT THE AUDIOBOOK. Oh my goodness. The audiobook is the closest I’ve experienced one of my own books as a reader might—it doesn’t even feel like I wrote it. It took this scene to a whole other level. Dan Bittner (who voices West West McCray) gave an incredible performance and this ...more

Paul taught me a person committed to silence can suggest importance, strength. So long as they’re a man, I mean. It’s not an option when you’re a girl, not unless you want people to think you’re a bitch.
It wouldn’t be a Courtney Summers novel if it didn’t have a line pointing out gender-based double standards! (If you like this line, you’ll probably find a few to like in my other books too!)

I realized pretty early on that the who didn’t really matter so much. That anybody who listens to me, I end up loving them just a little.
Sadie’s spent her life living for and looking after Mattie, so much so that it’s incredibly hard for her to admit she wants things for herself, that she yearns for tenderness and a love to call her own. This is one of the few times in the books she comes close. I remember thinking when I wrote this how sad it was that she could more easily articulate her intention to murder another human being than admit she has her own longings and desires.

Michael Dobbs
“It’s not respect but fear that motivates a man; that’s how empires are built and revolutions begin. It is the secret of great men. When a man is afraid you will crush him, utterly destroy him, his respect will always follow. Base fear is intoxicating, overwhelming, liberating. Always stronger than respect. Always.”
Michael Dobbs, House of Cards

“Uno scrittore non vive la vita come se questa gli cadesse addosso dal cielo, ma prevede e disegna ogni istante con metodo e precisione. Scoperchia e studia il mondo alla ricerca del congegno che lo fa funzionare, per poterlo sovvertire. Non gli interessa veramente chi sei e cosa fai, ma quanto materiale emozionale puoi fornirgli, quanta parte di te può trovare spazio, e in che modo, all'interno della sua opera.”
Sara Zelda Mazzini, Cronache dalla fine del mondo

“Politics requires sacrifice. The sacrifice of others, of course.”
Michael Dobbs, House of Cards

Blake Crouch
“For every perfect little town, there's something ugly underneath. No dream without the nightmare.”
Blake Crouch, Pines

Stephen King
“Curiosity killed the cat, you know, but satisfaction brought him back snap-ass happy.”
Stephen King, The Colorado Kid
