Ulysses by James Joyce
"I was in a love-hate relationship with this book for quite some time. When I first started reading it, it was absolutely dreadful! I couldn't get past page one. I needed to take a class in order to wrap my head around it. One semester and 800 page..." Read more of this review »

Alin G. and 31 other people liked Adriana's review of Scafandrul şi fluturele:
Scafandrul şi fluturele by Jean-Dominique Bauby
"O carte scrisă literă cu literă, unde fiecare literă reprezintă o mișcare de pleoapă. O singură pleoapă spune povestea unui om zidit în propriul trup, al cărui suflet evadează în imaginație și în amintiri. Un suflet viu într-un trup (aproape) mort..." Read more of this review »

Peter S. Beagle
“Sitting up all night would be pointless if somebody you loved wasn't sitting up with you, picking out music to play and helping you kill the bourbon. Walking by yourself in the rain is for college kids who think loneliness makes poets.”
Peter S. Beagle, A Fine and Private Place

Albert Camus
“Friendship is less simple. It is long and hard to obtain but when one has it there's no getting rid of it; one simply has to cope with it. Don't think for a minute that your friends will telephone you every evening, as they ought to, in order to find out if this doesn't happen to be the evening when you are deciding to commit suicide, or simply whether you don't need company, whether you are not in the mood to go out. No, don't worry, they'll ring up the evening you are not alone, when life is beautiful. As for suicide, they would be more likely to push you to it, by virtue of what you owe to yourself, according to them. May heaven protect us, cher Monsieur, from being set upon a pedestal by our friends!”
Albert Camus, The Fall

Richard Yates
“No one forgets the truth; they just get better at lying.”
Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road

W. Somerset Maugham
“I forget who it was that recommended men for their soul's good to do each day two things they disliked: it was a wise man, and it is a precept that I have followed scrupulously; for every day I have got up and I have gone to bed. But there is in my nature a strain of asceticism, and I have subjected my flesh each week to a more severe mortification. I have never failed to read the Literary Supplement of The Times.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence

Albert Camus
“You know what charm is: a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question.”
Albert Camus, The Fall
