"#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER" "Eerie and fascinating."-USA Today
...'nuf said. I don't finish books that I don't like unless they're really, really bad and then I kinda like them for their awfulness.
No, what I shall do is to find the quintessential sentence of the book, the one sentence-maybe two-that contains the entire storyline--
--if you have very loose associative thinking. And, I will pull out of the book my new favorite words. That way, everyone knows I've read the book, there's no book report and I get new favorite words to ramble on about inappropriately. (ex. radiculopathy) Okay. Game on.
The Thirteenth Tale--A tale in which stories, lives, and histories are built upon the whisperings of ghosts.
Quintessential Sentence--"The colored logo of a construction company had survived, but beneath it, two pale gray stains the shape of paragraphs and, slightly darker but not much, the shadow of a signature. It had the shape of writing, but the meaning had been bleached out by months of sunshine."
Favorite Word--"...a moment of vertiginous, kaleidoscopic bedazzlement..."--couldn't choose just one, this was all or nothing.
