It was interesting, quite readable; the main character was quirky and funny and, knowing it had been compared to Lord of the Flies, I enjoyed the feeling of light suspense the whole way through. It took a while to get to that point and it ended quick ...more

I enjoyed it, in the same way I enjoyed books like Foundation by Isaac Asimov - a cool and competent character overcomes obstacles through logic, in a vast and exciting setting. However, I found it less thrilling to read about a character with no sig ...more

Good again! I enjoyed how Threadbare continues to progress from such humble beginnings, and there seems to be some interesting secrets to be unveiled in the next volume...

Richard Feynman
“From a long view of the history of mankind, seen from, say, ten thousand years from now, there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics. The American Civil War will pale into provincial insignificance in comparison with this important scientific event of the same decade.”
Richard Feynman

Kristin Cashore
“I'm not going to wear a red dress," she said.
"It would look stunning, My Lady," she called.
She spoke to the bubbles gathered on the surface of the water. "If there's anyone I wish to stun at dinner, I'll hit him in the face.”
Kristin Cashore, Graceling

Richard Dawkins
“We need a name for the new replicator, a noun that conveys the idea of a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation. 'Mimeme' comes from a suitable Greek root, but I want a monosyllable that sounds a bit like 'gene'. I hope my classicist friends will forgive me if I abbreviate mimeme to meme. If it is any consolation, it could alternatively be thought of as being related to 'memory', or to the French word même. It should be pronounced to rhyme with 'cream'.”
Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene

Richard Feynman
“If you thought you were trying to find out more about it because you're gonna get an answer to some deep philosophical question...you may be wrong! It may be that you can't get an answer to that particular question by finding out more about the character of nature. But my interest in science is to simply find out about the world.”
Richard Feynman

Richard Feynman
“We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on.”
Richard Feynman
