It took me awhile to get past the first 30 pages and to get used to the magical realism. But, as always, her writing is beautiful and moving. Her metaphors are strange and deeply right.

I'm wavering between 4 and 5 stars. It has the hallmarks of a John Green book: it reads fast, the characters are deeply intelligent and thoughtful, and it has some pretentious moments. However, for me this book was a full body experience. I do not sh ...more

I didn't want to like it because I don't like novellas and I haven't liked Chaol's arc in the last several books. So a novella turned novel that's focused almost solely on him seemed like it would be 600+ pages of frustration. It was slow to start, b ...more

John Green
“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan.

Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”
John Green

Jandy Nelson
“Guys like him really shouldn’t be allowed on motorcycles. They should have to bounce around on pogo sticks, or better: Hippity Hops. And no hot guy should be allowed to have an English accent and drive a motorcycle. Not to mention wear the leather jacket or sport the cool shades. Hot guys should be forced into footie pajamas.”
Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun

Brian K. Vaughan
“It doesn't matter who started it or what it's really about...war usually ends up sucking most for women. Even when we're not fighting the battles ourselves, we somehow always end up with the lion's share of the suffering.”
Brian K. Vaughan

George R.R. Martin
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

John Green
“For me, the hero’s journey is not the voyage from weakness to strength. The true hero’s journey is the voyage from strength to weakness.”
John Green
