“A young girl, a freshman, I met in a bar in Cambridge my junior year at Harvard told me early one fall that “Life is full of endless possibilities.” I tried valiantly not to choke on the beer nuts I was chewing while she gushed this kidney stone of wisdom, and I calmly washed them down with the rest of a Heineken, smiled and concentrated on the dart game that was going on in the corner. Needless to say, she did not live to see her sophomore year.That winter, her body was found floating in the Charles River, decapitated, her head hung from a tree on the bank, her hair knotted around a low-hanging branch, three miles away.”
Bret Easton Ellis.
Day 14: Oh, I cried
The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger
“Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow and transparent as glass. Through each moment I can see infinite moments lined up, waiting. Why has he gone where I cannot follow?”
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
A story about a teenage girl who has cancer, falls in love with a boy she met in Group Support. A reader can’t help but get wrapped up into this neatly woven tale. It truly is a touching story about love and lost. As with all great books that are being made into a movie, I can’t wait to see this one.
