Last Chance Saloon, by Marian Keyes

I'm torn. On the one hand, chick lit isn't really my thing, it's too fluffy and this particular tomb is almost 600 pages long! Too long! On the other hand, it's light, vaguely entertaining, with believable, identifiable characters and a semi-decent plot-line, which is coming together nicely as I get further in. I don't find it as funny as it's made out to be. No laugh out loud moments yet. Might read more of Keye's work if the mood strikes me, might not ... can't really see myself being converted to the genre, but the occasional aberration may occur ...
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way it treats its animals.

You are what you think, you become what you think, and what you think becomes reality.

page 46, The Magic of Findhorn, by Paul Hawken
Imagination is the link between the world of mind and the world of matter. Contemplate this intelligence as your own, or the One Great Creative Imagination, that reproduces, or ceases to reproduce, a thought over and over again, resulting in the life or death of the imagined form.

Being truly loving often means that we must behave in ways that do not reinforce self-destructive patterns in others.

Book Reviews

A Wake for the Living: Poems by (Serbian poet) Radmila Lazic

A beautifully written collection of feministic, witty poems. Very eloquent, insightful & evocative.

Dogboy by Victor Kelleher

The story of an abandoned child, raised by a dog, who struggles for acceptance from the people he encounters during his quest for identity, purpose & meaning.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Having never been a Jane Austen fan, I struggled through Pride and Prejudice somewhat, however it did amuse me with occasional plot twists & witty observations upon both human nature and the society of the time.

Let's hope I shall be able to say the same of her other novels ...
