Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

The premise of this book is amazing -- and still is amazing! A Nigerian-inspired fantasy about sin-eaters.
Unfortunately, this book was, at best, not for me, and at worst, incoherent.

Jane Goodall
“The greatest danger to our future is apathy.”
Jane Goodall

Alan Moore
“Happiness is the most insidious prison of all.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Upton Sinclair
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”
Upton Sinclair, I, Candidate for Governor: And How I Got Licked

Haruki Murakami
“In the midst of this overwhelming sunset, the image of Hatsumi flashed into my mind, and in that moment I understood what that tremor of the heart had been. It was a kind of childhood longing that had always remained—and would forever remain—unfulfilled. I had forgotten the existence of such innocent, all-but-seared-in longing: forgotten for years to remember what such feelings had ever existed inside of me. What Hatsumi had stirred in me was a part of my very self that had long lain dormant. And when the realization struck me, it aroused such sorrow I almost burst into tears. She had been an absolutely special woman. Someone should have done something—anything—to save her.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Haruki Murakami
“I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun
