The best thing for being sad, replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then - to learn.

BellaBookNook Wow, this quote is so spot on. I'm going to have to tuck this one away!! Love it! 2y

After Dark | Haruki Murakami

Unimpressed and slightly annoyed. One weird thing juxtaposed against uninteresting scenes of life after dark, and characters I couldn't care about. Reads like the first draft of a first-time novelist. I was expecting so much more.

"Thence we sailed sadly on, glad to have escaped death, though we had lost our comrades, and came to the Aeaean island, where Circe lives – a great and cunning goddess who is own sister to the magician Aeetes- for they are both children of the sun by Perse, who is daughter to Oceanus."

I spent several sleepless nights poring over this book because I felt so involved with the characters' lives, feelings, and choices. The story not only captured my interest, but also gripped my emotions quite strongly. I need to keep going and read the next 5 books in the saga. I love this book for the immersive storytelling and the depth of historical research that went into it, making it an exemplary piece of historical fiction.
