Quotes

meirahas quoted2 years ago
I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.
meirahas quoted2 years ago
When he died, all things swift and beautiful and bright would be buried with him.

He is half of my soul, as the poets say. He will be dead soon

    Truly captivating book from start to finish. It is so beautifully written that I caught myself re-reading some sentences over and over again mesmerized by all the choices of words that fit so perfectly together in a sentence. All the descriptions and all the conversations of the characters are so well-thought of and it is safe to say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. Nearing the end I couldn't stop crying and then I cried even more after reading last words. A masterpiece.
