Kevin made a comment on his review of The Mere Wife
The Mere Wife by Maria Dahvana Headley
" Just a little too stream of consciousness for me; kind of over-the-top rhetorically (the wealthy powerful women of the suburbs versus the homeless vet ...more "

Started out listening to this on audio hoping it would be a good thriller to listen to while running. But ended up having to finish it in paperback format. If you like action at the expense of everything else this book might be for you. Bad writing, ...more

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata

Odd but interesting exploration of an aspect of Japanese culture and society but it feels like the oddness overwhelms. I really wonder how much an understanding of Japanese culture aids in your enjoyment of the book. Pushing social awkwardness ad abs ...more

Love this series! Was lucky enough to get this from the library just prior to having to fly. Perfect airplane reading. Only drawback is I didn't have another book to dive into once I had finished this one. Just the right mix of mystery, action, sci-f ...more

Thanks to Milo Weaver's appearance at the end of The Middleman I decided to revisit the Tourist series. Listened to this one and really enjoyed it and plan to keep going for the next two. Intelligent and well written intelligence thriller. As good as ...more

As a collector of Lisbeth Zwerger I was tickled to find this at Half Price Books. Of course, the illustrations are gorgeous but the story is fantastical, silly and quite fun. Need to read more Nesbit.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.”
Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Catherynne M. Valente
“Temptation likes best those who think they have a natural immunity, for it may laugh all the harder when they succumb.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland - For a Little While

Lemony Snicket
“Boredom is not black licorice, Snicket," she said. "There's no reason to share it with me.”
Lemony Snicket, When Did You See Her Last?

Philip Yancey
“Shouldn’t we be presenting an alternative to the prevailing culture rather than simply mimicking it? What would a church look like that created space for quietness, that bucked the celebrity trend and unplugged from noisy media, that actively resisted our consumer culture? What would worship look like if we directed it more toward God than toward our own amusement?”
Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?

N.T. Wright
“The point was this: if Enlightenment progress is solving the problem of evil, all Jesus needs to have done is to point the way, to show people what love and compassion look like. Being reasonable, people will follow his example. If they do not, they need more teaching in reason. Much would-be Christian thought (including much would-be “biblical” Christian thought) in the last two hundred years has tacitly conceded these huge claims, turning “Kingdom of God” into “the hope for heaven after death” and treating Jesus’s death, at the most, as the mechanism whereby individual sinners can receive forgiveness and hope for an otherworldly future—leaving the politicians and economists of the Enlightenment to take over the running, and as it turns out the ruining, of the world.”
N.T. Wright, Scripture and the Authority of God: How to Read the Bible Today
