Rossen to the Rescue by Jeff Rossen
"I knew I should have stopped with this book when Jeff Rossen urged readers to not go back into a burning house to rescue the dog. What kind of sick fuck lets the pets die but saves him or herself? If you had a speck of worth as a person, you'd rat..." Read more of this review »

Well...you can tell it was a first novel, let's put it that way. But to be completely fair, I also don't feel like I was part of the target audience. However, this is a site for opinions, so here's mine.

This was slow - too slow - and dull. Don't get

I'm bored of it already - don't get me wrong, the cat narrator is a sweetheart, but the pace is glacially slow and I feel like I've already got it all figured out, so I'm calling Rule of 50 and quitting. Despite being a cat lover, I don't think I was ...more

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real.”
Nora Ephron

Jiang Rong
“Does that mean that the grass doesn't constitute a life? That the grassland isn't a life? Out here, the grass and the grassland are the life, the big life. All else is the little life that depends on the big life for survival. Even wolves and humans are little life. Creatures that eat grass are worse than creatures that eat meat. To you, the gazelle is to be pitied. So the grass isn't to be pitied, is that it? The gazelles have four fast-moving legs, and most of the time wolves spit up blood from exhaustion trying to catch them. When the gazelles are thirsty, they run to the river to drink, and when they're cold, they run to a warm spot on the mountain to soak up some sun. But the grass? Grass is the big life, yet it is most fragile, the most miserable life. Its roots are shallow, the soil is thin, and though it lives on the ground, it cannot run away. Anyone can step on it, eat it, chew it, crush it. A urinating horse can burn a large spot in it. And if the grass grows in sand or in the cracks between rocks, it is even shorter, because it cannot grow flowers, which means it cannot spread its seeds. For us Mongols, there's nothing more deserving of pity than the grass. If you want to talk about killing, the the gazelles kill more grass than any mowing machine could. When they graze the land, isn't that killing? Isn't that taking the big life of the grassland? When you kill off the big life of the grassland, all the little lives are doomed. The damage done by the gazelles far outstrips any done by the wolves. The yellow gazelles are the deadliest, for they can end the lives of the people here.”
Jiang Rong, Wolf Totem

Emily St. John Mandel
“What’s the point of doing all that work,” Tesch asks, “if no one sees it?” “It makes me happy. It’s peaceful, spending hours working on it. It doesn’t really matter to me if anyone else sees it.”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Emily St. John Mandel
“If there are again towns with streetlights, if there are symphonies and newspapers, then what else might this awakening world contain? Perhaps vessels are setting out even now, traveling toward or away from him, steered by sailors armed with maps and knowledge of the stars, driven by need or perhaps simply by curiosity: whatever became of the countries on the other side?”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven
