Lynn C and 4 other people liked Ian Kemp's review of To Sail Beyond the Sunset:
To Sail Beyond the Sunset by Robert A. Heinlein
"This is his worst book by far of what I have read. It is really just bizarre sex thing over and over again apparently told by a woman. Which when you remember this is actually being written by a weird old man makes you just feel creepy. "

To Sail Beyond the Sunset by Robert A. Heinlein
"It has been close to 20 years since I read this, and remembering it still makes me want to scrub my brain."
To Sail Beyond the Sunset by Robert A. Heinlein
"On March 7, 2014 I reviewed Robert A. Heinlein's "I Will Fear No Evil" and gave it one star. It was a sex-obsessed orgy with little "science fiction" to offer. Realizing it was published in 1970 during the Sexual Revolution, I thought maybe it was..." Read more of this review »

Lynn C answered a question about The Memory Keeper's Daughter:
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
My guess is that it's supposed to be Phoebe's, possibly a burial shroud. I think it's transparent (or a photo negative) because she's repeatedly defined by her absence in her birth family's lives. Kind of like the opposite of a baby, pure loss. Bu... See Full Answer

Never judge a book by its movie. I hated the film when I saw it in theaters years ago and would never have read this if a friend hadn't pressed it upon me, swearing it was the "true true" or something to that effect. Well, I'm glad I gave it a try. C ...more

“Is there no way out of the mind?”
Sylvia Plath

Arlaina Tibensky
“Sylvia Plath is there for me when actual living people upon who I have depended upon my whole life, are not. What I mean to say is, without her words, I'd be exponentially more messed up than I am already.”
Arlaina Tibensky, And Then Things Fall Apart

Anne Rice
“The truth is, laughter always sounds more perfect than weeping. Laughter flows in a violent riff and is effortlessly melodic. Weeping is often fought, choked, half strangled, or surrendered to with humiliation.”
Anne Rice

“Assimilate ubiquitously. Doublethink.
To deliberately believe in lies, while knowing they're false.
Examples of this in everyday life: "oh, I need to be pretty to be happy. I need surgery to be pretty. I need to be thin, famous, fashionable.". Our young men today are being told that women are **, **, things to be **, beaten, **, and shamed. This is a marketing holocaust. Twenty-fours hours a day for the rest of our lives, the powers that be are hard at work dumbing us to death.
So to defend ourselves, and fight against assimilating this dullness into our thought processes, we must learn to read. To stimulate our own imagination, to cultivate our own consciousness, our own belief systems. We all need skills to defend, to preserve, our own minds.”
Henry Barthes

Marcel Proust
“Unkindness is inspired by hatred, anger fuels it into action in which there is no great joy; it would take sadism to turn it into something pleasurable; unkind people imagine themselves to be inflicting pain on someone equally unkind.”
Marcel Proust, The Guermantes Way
