It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. Seems like most of the story got wrapped up in a brief epilogue and the book itself meandered around a "what actually happened" narrative that wasn't all that compelling. Kind of sad but interesting take on th ...more

I liked this one. It wasn't a particularly original story, I suppose, but it was pleasant to read and felt like a nice cozy little tale. I also really liked that the MC was an older widow with 2 children who was realistically juggling the demands of ...more

I enjoyed this book. It was a longer than it needed to be and it didn't really have a plot but eh. It was the (somewhat contrived and dramatic) story of three generation of Arabic women (Palestinian, maybe?). One thing I appreciated about it was what ...more

“[on scene execution] Interesting isn't the point...storytelling momentum and relevance is.”
Larry Brooks, Story Engineering: Character Development, Story Concept, Scene Construction

Iain M. Banks
“Well, in the end, there was no helping this. Sometimes you just had to adopt the attitude summed up by, Too bad.
Iain M. Banks, The Hydrogen Sonata

“One should never mistake pattern for meaning.”

“If you're playing God, you need to get it right.”
Larry Brooks, Story Engineering: Character Development, Story Concept, Scene Construction

Iain M. Banks

Iain M. Banks, The Hydrogen Sonata
