The Invention of Hugo Cabret
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

El concepto es interesante y las ilustraciones bonitas pero la historia es bastante insustancial.

Review: Tenemos que hablar de Kevin

Tenemos que hablar de Kevin
Tenemos que hablar de Kevin by Lionel Shriver
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I felt rather annoyed with this book for the most part. Sure, we basically know the aftermath since the beginning and are only lacking some details but it felt like after the first 20 pages or so the author had ran out of ideas properly and just kept going around in circles. Ok, so yeah, Eva was deeply unhappy since the beginning (some might say exceedingly paranoid, that, too, if it weren’t because she actually was right); Franklin is quite frankly stupid, frustratingly so, even if well intended and with his ever want-to-believe posture, but I just felt like slapping the hell out of him throughout the whole book and Celia was… well, weird, I can’t truly think of anybody just being so apologetical as she was. That being said all characters were quite plain, even Kevin. All that resulted in nearly six hundred pages of bore. If it weren’t for a few tidbits that quite surprised me I’d have gone with a two stars rating; actually, it was only because the real turning point of the book quite managed to surprise me that I decided to grant it one more star.

“Sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.”

The Daily Post

“If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.

I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
