I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes
Rate this book

One of the best thrillers I've ever read: a clever combination of a murder mystery and spy thriller. Maybe just one or two nagging details: if Ben could find out Scott's identity why couldn't Scott find out Ingrid Kohl's real identity? And could a Sa ...more
The Deluge by Adam Tooze
" If the world sleepwalked into the first world war, getting out of it was equally incompetent. Nobody really gets a good mark here, least of all presid ...more "
The Deluge by Adam Tooze
"Adam Tooze is a economic historian who deals with myths and realities of modern history. His use of statistical analysis lends credence to his challenges of historical orthodoxy. I was deeply impressed by his other book, The Wages of Destruction,..." Read more of this review »

Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks

Olen pitkään ihmetellyt kesän 1944 tapahtumia, ja ihmettelen yhä, vaikka Visuri tapahtumat hyvin kuvaakin. Jo viimeistään 1943 oli selvää, että Saksa häviää sodan, ja Suomi yrittikin monin tavoin sodasta irtautua. Pitkin kevättä 1944 tuli selviä merk ...more

“Young people," McDonald said contemptuously. "You always think there's something to find out."

"Yes, sir," Andrews said.

"Well, there's nothing," McDonald said. "You get born, and you nurse on lies, and you get weaned on lies, and you learn fancier lies in school. You live all your life on lies, and then maybe when you're ready to die, it comes to you — that there's nothing, nothing but yourself and what you could have done. Only you ain't done it, because the lies told you there was something else. Then you know you could of had the world, because you're the only one that knows the secret; only then it's too late.
