My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

I have mixed feelings about this novel. I appreciated the fresh approach to a coming of age story, yet I found myself bored by the narrator's jealousy of her friend. Still, it kept me engaged until the end.

I enjoyed this book so much--I looked for excuses to be in my car, which is where I do most of my audio book listening. I did feel the end was rushed--not quite as strong as the rest of the book. That is not stopping me from seeking out the second in ...more

Need to be inspired? Read this. Better yet, listen to it. Neil Gaiman reading his own work is not to be missed.

Jane Austen
“I am not at all in a humor for writing; I must write on till I am.”
Jane Austen

Erin Morgenstern
“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Michael Ondaatje
“She had always wanted words, she loved them; grew up on them. Words gave her clarity, brought reason, shape.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

Neil Gaiman
“Stories are like spiders, with all they long legs, and stories are like spiderwebs, which man gets himself all tangled up in but which look pretty when you see them under a leaf in the morning dew, and in the elegant way that they connect to one another, each to each.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

Neil Gaiman
“Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn't a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their song instead.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
