This book was well worth the effort of getting through the first 20%! The book is really slow to get started and is incredibly stagnant introducing characters that mostly just sleep and lounge around (Allison, not their cat). But then, when the book ...more

Siddharth is 84% done with The Little Friend: Final hour of reading to go. The book is inching towards an explosive (I think) climax. Both of Tartt's novels that I have read till now have had high energy climaxes with unexpected things happening. I don't think she will disappoint here either. It's really intriguing to read about all the different characters in this book: the Ratliffs, Allison, the great aunts, Charlotte and of course, Harriet.

Vladimir Nabokov
“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Charlotte Brontë
“Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agised as in that hour left my lips: for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

John Waters
“If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em!”
John Waters

P.G. Wodehouse
“The voice of Love seemed to call to me, but it was a wrong number.”
P.G. Wodehouse, Very Good, Jeeves!

Christina Rossetti
“Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad”
Christina Rossetti, Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology
