Wow, what a story. You would think it would be tedious as some time stories can be, but he tells it in such a way that it never gets boring. Now, that I finished, I can finally breathe.

This book was rather painful to read. The people and their decisions were annoying. I don't know what was the point of the story. It seemed unlikely to have ever happened, and it lacked authenticity. I'm not referring to the racial biased. That is ...more
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
"How did secret societies, associations, cults, and shadow cabinets influence human history and how evolved the first few stone age groups of chief, medicine man, dealer, and strongest soldier until today and will develop in the future?

Prey by Michael Crichton
"A, for the characters, tour de force of possible nanotech escalation settings.

Its like a combination of different tropes surrounding grey goo, all seen in Sci-Fi many times from huge scales to tiny scales, resulting in the reader wondering which..." Read more of this review »

“I sometimes wanted to shout at them, “Why are you looking at me like that? Don’t you think I know how I look? Or how bad I smell? Do you think that I like walking down these streets, instead of sitting in a nice heated car like you, sipping coffee and eating a doughnut?” But thankfully, so far I’ve always managed to avoid the temptation. (Shouting something like that is sure to bring you to the attention of the cops, and I was in no mood to spend time in jail, or the county facility for drunks.) I’ve been in the overnight drunk tank several times. Once, they had to take me to a county facility, when I got the DT’s. I vaguely remember being in some hospital bed and strapped down, while I writhed in fear from the sounds”

“Several historians see the regime of Duplessis as an anachronism. After his death, he was reproached for having been the head of a corrupt government, having sold the natural resources of Quebec to the highest bidder and having ignored the rights and liberties of the citizens.”
Rod Vienneau, Collusion : The dark history of the Duplessis Orphans.

“Paul's story has been laden with criminal acts of all kinds. He is a member of the Abenaki tribe and of the Wolinak Reservation of Becancour. Paul is also the nephew of the former Great Chief of the Nations, Noel St-Aubin. He was sent to do farm work, which we will speak about again in Chapter 7, and then to psychiatric hospitals, where he suffered irreversible damage.”
Rod Vienneau, Collusion : The dark history of the Duplessis Orphans.

“Paul states that a guard hit him with his fist to get him into a cell, so that doctors could have a straitjacket put on him in order to inject him with powerful drugs.”
Rod Vienneau, Collusion : The dark history of the Duplessis Orphans.

“When the train arrived, the sisters put the children on board, obviously never to return, but they kept Paul who was there simply help with the baggage and who had a great deal of difficulty speaking and expressing himself. The transfer of orphans from this institute was a regular occurrence. Paul remembers two women with dark skin who came to categorize the children. One of them, with short nappy hair spoke to Paul, telling him that she had seen him elsewhere (at La Miséricorde Home), and that he was separated from the other children because of a fractured skull that he experienced at the age of 2. Paul stayed at the Chaumont Institute for 3 years. He noticed a great turnover of children – these were transferred to the Chaumont Institute, and then sent on to the United States.”
Rod Vienneau, Collusion : The dark history of the Duplessis Orphans.
