Otis’s Recent Updates

The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle
"I have not read Sherlock Holmes since I was a teenager. I never knew he was such a coke addict."
Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang
" When does it open? Can we all come? :) "
Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang

Otis Chandler and 1 other person liked Veronica Moss's review of You (You #1):
You by Caroline Kepnes
"A sad realization about myself is that almost every book I have read this year is perfectly suited to become a Lifetime movie. In fact, this book IS becoming a Lifetime series (and yes, I will watch it and then hate myself afterwards).

This book is..." Read more of this review »
Otis Chandler and 2 other people liked Rob's review of Artemis:
Artemis by Andy Weir
"Like many, I had unreasonably high hopes for Andy Weir's follow-up to "The Martian". The overall story is entertaining here. It tends to get a bit too mired down by some of the scientific explanations to the point where it can become somewhat exha..." Read more of this review »

Rate this book
Clear rating

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

William Shakespeare
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
