I really wanted to like this book more than I ended up liking it. I did enjoy it, and it read really quickly, but it was really a little too long. It kept going, and going.

And I thought the title was a little misleading. The fireman is a major chara

3.5 stars. This is a book that reads quickly with an interesting story.

I had NO idea about the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup that happened in France in 1942. And though it is a very sad and awful part of history, I was glad to now know about it. There are stori

3.8 stars. Overall, I really liked this book. However, I will say that I felt that, at times, the story was taking a little too long to unfold, especially since I felt the ending was so abrupt! I would have liked a little bit more of an ending, espec ...more

2.8 stars. Overall, I liked the STORY. Girl born on Mars, of British parents, taking place around the time period of Regency England, is more used to her Martian heritage than her British one. Throw in some Steampunk elements. Girl gets into some int ...more

“Reading isn't the opposite of doing, it's the opposite of dying.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Erin Morgenstern
“Stories have changed, my dear boy,” the man in the grey suit says, his voice almost imperceptibly sad. “There are no more battles between good and evil, no monsters to slay, no maidens in need of rescue. Most maidens are perfectly capable of rescuing themselves in my experience, at least the ones worth something, in any case. There are no longer simple tales with quests and beasts and happy endings. The quests lack clarity of goal or path. The beasts take different forms and are difficult to recognize for what they are. And there are never really endings, happy or otherwise. Things keep overlapping and blur, your story is part of your sister’s story is part of many other stories, and there in no telling where any of them may lead. Good and evil are a great deal more complex than a princess and a dragon, or a wolf and a scarlet-clad little girl. And is not the dragon the hero of his own story? Is not the wolf simply acting as a wolf should act? Though perhaps it is a singular wolf who goes to such lengths as to dress as a grandmother to toy with its prey.”

“The greatest gift you can give anyone is your undivided attention...”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Will Schwalbe
“What I suddenly understood was that a thank-you note isn't the price you pay for receiving a gift, as so many children think it is, a kind of minimum tribute or toll, but an opportunity to count your blessings. And gratitude isn't what you give in exchange for something; it's what you feel when you are blessed--blessed to have family and friends who care about you, and who want to see you happy. Hence the joy from thanking.”
