Started out as a fun, light read ... dystopian novel with an Amazon-like store as the protagonist. But it just become more and more ridiculous and far-fetched. The plot wasn't cohesive. I read to the end hoping that it would somehow redeem itself ... ...more
Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood
"Margaret Atwood has outdone herself. The play within a play within a play, each with its own tempest, plows forward under her masterful navigation toward a delicious revenge. All the elements of a classic but reads like a thriller. "

I can’t rate this book; I appreciate it but I really didn’t like it. The writing is wonderful. The storyline is imaginative and has it all: family drama, murder, jealousy, betrayal, mystery, cults, lobotomies, carnival freaks, auto-amputations, sexua ...more

Picked this book up yesterday afternoon to read the book jacket, finished it this evening. It's smart, fast paced, and makes you philosophical about the choices we make.
Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken
" I heart this man ... wonderful writer with great insight. And I want to rewatch When A Man Loves A Woman, now that I know the background. "

“Liquor is the kiss of the angels as well as the curse of the devil. It can conceal but also can reveal”
Thrity Umrigar, The Space Between Us

Neil Gaiman
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

Mohsin Hamid
“You have reminded me of how alien I found the concept of acquaintances splitting the bill when I first arrived in your country. I had been raised to favour mutual generosity over mathematical precision in such matters; given time both work equally well to even a score.”
Mohsin Hamid, The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Randy Pausch
“There's a lot of talk these days about giving children self-esteem. It's not something you can give; it's something they have to build. Coach Graham worked in a no-coddling zone. Self-esteem? He knew there was really only one way to teach kids how to develop it: You give them something they can't do, they work hard until they find they can do it, and you just keep repeating the process.”
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Ann Patchett
“Hope is a horrible thing, you know. I don't know who decided to package hope as a virtue because it's not. It's a plague. Hope is like walking around with a fishhook in your mouth and somebody just keeps pulling it and pulling it.”
Ann Patchett, State of Wonder
