"I've put this book on hold for the moment in lieu of reading the Time Machine. I've been having the hardest time just reading the short parts every day (DailyLit), so I paused the installments and hopefully I can go back to it after something that draws me in more." Sep 17, 2016 08:14PM

"Reading this book is like forcing you to listen to a used car salesman without end. It's 95% fluff, trying to convince you that if you only listen to his ideas, you'll get everything you've ever wanted and live a charmed life thence.

Yes, the points are useful, but the pain I have to endure to get there."

Naomi Alderman
“It turns out the voter's lied. Just like the accusations that they always throw at hard-working public servants, the goddamned electorate turned out to be goddamned liars themselves. They said they respected hard work, commitment and moral courage. They said that the candidate's opponent had lost their vote the moment she gave up on reasoned discourse and calm authority. But when they went into the voting booths in their hundreds, and thousands, and tens of thousands, they'd thought, You know what, though, she's strong. She'd show them.”
Naomi Alderman, The Power

Naomi Alderman
“It doesn't matter that she shouldn't, that she never would. What matters is that she could, if she wanted. The power to hurt is a kind of wealth.”
Naomi Alderman, The Power

J.K. Rowling
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Cheris Kramarae
“Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings.”
