Outline by Rachel Cusk
"



Although I've read this in English I thought that the title for the Spanish translation suited the novel better then the original. Contraluz, that translates literally as 'backlighting' but whose meaning is something like 'against the light' fitte..." Read more of this review »
A Beautiful Corpse by Christi   Daugherty
"This is the 2nd in the crime reporter, Harper McClain series set in the small town of Savannah, Georgia. This worked fine as a standalone but I should warn there are major spoilers here about events that occurred in the first book. A 24 year old w..." Read more of this review »

".
Well, I've mentioned before how farcical it is that Goodreads invites authors to rate their own work. It's clearly open to abuse and I don't approve of it one bit!

Chinua Achebe
“I believe in the complexity of the human story and that there’s no way you can tell that story in one way and say, This is it. Always there will be someone who can tell it differently depending on where they are standing; the same person telling the story will tell it differently. I think of that masquerade in Igbo festivals that dances in the public arena. The Igbo people say, If you want to see it well, you must not stand in one place. The masquerade is moving through this big arena. Dancing. If you’re rooted to a spot, you miss a lot of the grace. So you keep moving, and this is the way I think the world’s stories should be told—from many different perspectives.”
Chinua Achebe

Ramakrishna
“You see many stars in the sky at night, but not when the sun rises. Can you therefore say that there are no stars in the heavens during the day? Because you cannot find God in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no God.”
Ramakrishna
