2021 BOOKS

"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy



“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato



“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero



“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving



“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume



“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison



“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière



“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine



“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


 

Mutineer (Kris Longknife #1) by Mike Shepherd

Mutineer - Mike Shepherd

I really looked forward to starting this series, however what I expected and what I got unfortunately was not on par. The start was ok, but then it got dry and hard to keep focus. I liked the Olympia part, that was exciting. The rest after that was boring. 

I'm not sure I like Kris, she is hard to get a read on. I know, I don't like Tom, he was a bit of a whiner. I liked Nelly more than I liked Tom, which is saying something when an AI rates higher than a human. I'll probably read the 2nd book sometime, just to see if it gets better.
