Danita L and 1 other person liked Carla's review of Magpie Murders:
Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz
"This polished, well-written novel is pure fun. A mystery within a mystery, filled with all sorts of tricky homages to other detective novels, and a highly satisfying wrap-up. The author knows his stuff. "
Date Night by Samantha Hayes
" lol, main protagonist is annoying and you didn't like two other main characters? And still you gave it 4 *. The book must have been pretty good then. ...more "

The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
"Re-read this Highsmith suspense classic, and once again, was impressed with her ability to generate interest in her murderous, con artist protagonist. Her nastiness is unrelenting and even predictable, but it works. "

“Sometimes you made love to a man because you wanted your body to feel something other than the aches and pains of use. Sometimes you made love to man because he looked so good that you wanted to try him on.

Sometimes you made love to a man because you felt split in two, and joining with him pulled you back together.”
Erika Swyler, The Mermaid Girl: A Story

Peter Heller
“Is it possible to love so desperately that life is unbearable? I don't mean unrequited, I mean being in the love. In the midst of it and desperate. Because knowing it will end, because everything does. End.”
