A Spark of Light | Jodi Picoult

Not the hero and the villain, not the pro life activist and the abortion doctor, not the cop and the killer. We are all drowning slowly in a tide of our opinions, oblivious that we are taking on water every time we open our mouths.

quote

A Spark of Light | Jodi Picoult

A teenage girl curled in her side in bed at Baptist Memorial Hospital, wondering how she could feel so incredibly alone in a world so crowded with people.

Loved this book. Unexpected turns it takes and the way everything is narrated makes it worthwhile reading. 1/14/2020

quote
Agabriv
The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD

Knowing is temptation. What you don‘t know won‘t tempt you.

quote
Agabriv
The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

The moment of betrayal is the worst, the moment when you know beyond any doubt that you‘ve been betrayed: that some other human being has wished you that much evil. It was like being in an elevator cut loose at the top. Falling, falling and not knowing when you will hit.

quote
Agabriv
The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

But if you happen to be a man, sometime in the future, and you‘ve made it this far, please remember: you will never be subjected to the temptation or feeling you must forgive, a man, as a women.

quote
Agabriv
The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD

Sanity is a valuable possession. I hoard it the way people once hoarded money. I save it, so I will have enough, when the time comes.

quote
Agabriv
The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD

They touch with their eyes instead and I move my hips a little, feeling the full red skirt sway around me. It‘s like thumbing your nose from behind a fence or teasing a dog with a bone held out of reach, and I‘m ashamed of myself for doing it, because none of this is the fault of these men, they‘re too young. Then I find I‘m not ashamed after all. I enjoy the power; power of a dog bone, passive but there.

Liked the way she was talked about. “It is only thirty years since I have become what they are not, and that teaches one to live”.

It was an interesting reading. I‘m looking forward for the next book.

quote
Agabriv

To know that you were with one who cared for you, and who understood every fiber of your being, and who would not abandon you in even the most desperate of circumstances, that was the most precious relationship a person could have, and both Eragon and Saphira cherished it.

It doesn‘t matter where people come from they can accept each other, share and respect their differences. Read this book before and I still enjoy it.

Didn‘t like this book at all. I hate when love is shown as an illusion or suffered fantasy.

Being a woman in a society that has tradition rooted might be an obstacle to speak up about violence and abuse.

Of all three books I've read of Hosseini this one has become my favorite. It focus on two women that have to struggle with cultural issues, like so many women are struggling around the world. This book makes awareness of how being a women in some places is not easy at all. Topics about women's grieving, endurance, happiness and struggles are mentioned
