Sophie's Choice by William Styron

This is supposed to be a great American novel? I found it extremely tedious, and while the writing was good I guess, I found all of the characters completely insufferable. Particularly the narrator -- and why is he even the narrator (it isn't HIS sto ...more

Riona and 15 other people liked Erika's review of Sophie's Choice:
Sophie's Choice by William Styron
"Well, I finished it. And I despised every moment of it, from the writing to the characters. Maybe I just don't understand or appreciate a writing style such as Styron's, but I just found it incredibly tedious and tiresome to wade through all of St..." Read more of this review »
Riona and 16 other people liked Nadine Doolittle's review of Sophie's Choice:
Sophie's Choice by William Styron
"Obviously, one star is a bit dramatic. I didn't like this book but it was beautifully written--Styron is no slouch with words--and the characters and situation were vividly drawn. The "choice" Sophie had to make was a hellish one and unlike some r..." Read more of this review »

David Foster Wallace
“I'm just afraid of having a tombstone that says HERE LIES A PROMISING OLD MAN.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

David Foster Wallace
“Your basic-type jailhouse tatt is homemade with sewing needles from the jailhouse canteen and some blue ink from the cartridge of a fountain pen promoted from the breast pocket of an unaltert public defender, is why the jailhouse genre is always the same night-sky blue. The needle is dipped in the ink and jabbed as deep into the tattooee as it can be jabbed without making him recoil and fucking up your aim. Just a plain ultraminimal blue square like Gately's got on his right wrist takes half a day and hundreds of individual jabs. How come the lines are never quite straight and the color's never quite all the way solid is it's impossible to get all the individualized punctures down to the same uniform deepness in the, like, twitching flesh. This is why jailhouse tatts always look like they were done by sadistic children on rainy afternoons.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

David Foster Wallace
“Why do prostitutes when they get straight always try and get so prim? It's like long-repressed librarian-ambitions come flooding out.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Gillian Flynn
“Tampon commercial, detergent commercial, maxi pad commercial, windex commercial - you'd think all women do is clean and bleed.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Gillian Flynn
“There's no app for a bourbon buzz on a warm day in a cool, dark bar. The world will always want a drink.”
