    🚀Unputdownable

    Книга в геймановском стиле: сказка, страшная тем, что она реальна. Невозможное вторгается в жизнь и перекраивает ее, и возврата к прежней точке нет. Ты только борешься и потом живешь с последствиями. В общем, круто, всем советую.

Quotes

    “I’m going to tell you something important. Grown-ups don’t look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they’re big and thoughtless and they always know what they’re doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. The truth is, there aren’t any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.”
    Dmitry Babenkohas quoted3 years ago
    ‘You can’t,’ said Lettie. ‘It would destroy you.’
    I opened my mouth to tell her that nothing could kill me, not now, but she said, ‘Not kill you. Destroy you. Dissolve you. You wouldn’t die in here, nothing ever dies in here, but if you stayed here for too long, just a little of you would exist everywhere, all spread out. And that’s not a good thing. Never enough of you all together in one place, so there wouldn’t be anything left that would think of itself as an “I”. No point of view any longer, because you’d be an infinite sequence of views and of points …’
    Gulhas quoted3 years ago
    Different people remember things differently, and you’ll not get any two people to remember anything the same, whether they were there or not. You stand two of you lot next to each other, and you could be continents away for all it means anything.
