“At times I suffer from the strangest sense of detachment from myself and the world about me; I seen to watch it all from the outside, from somewhere inconceivably remote, out of time, out of space, out of the stress an tragedy of it all.”—H. G. Wells (War Of The Worlds)
“The “serious” novelist is looking for answers and keys to the self; the “popular” novelist is looking for an audience. Both kinds of writers are equally selfish.”—Stephen King. Introduction to “The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three”. (via fuckyeah-unclesteve)
I really have no idea if this is a popular book or not. If it’s not, it should be. If it is, then… well I guess someone can tell me so?
I picked it up on a sale table at Target for $3.00, so my assumption was that it wasn’t a big hit. But it’s an awesome read. Well worth it. I recommend it to anyone who likes fast paced, imaginative, witty writing.
Reminds me a lot of Terry Pratchett writing style, and we all know Terry is the man.
