  • Eoin shared from Great North Road by Peter F. Hamilton
    Note: A good book, but not Hamilton's best. Wish it had been edited down to a slimmer, pacier volume.
  • Eoin shared from The Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré
    The general’s son spoke slow and beautiful French and it clearly gave him great pleasure to hear himself, for he kept his eyes half closed and smiled as he spoke, as if listening to beloved music.
    Note: more great prose
  • Eoin shared from The Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré
    Yet it was not the shelling but the silence that held the greatest fear. Like the jungle itself this silence, not gunfire, was the natural element of the approaching enemy.
    Note: Really like this turn of phase
  • Eoin shared from Rivers of London (PC Peter Grant) by Ben Aaronovitch
    So we spent the rest of the afternoon bearing false witness in separate interview rooms. We were careful to make sure that while our accounts broadly agreed, there were lots of authentic-looking discrepancies. No one can fake a statement the way a policeman can.
    Note: I really rather enjoying Rivers of London
  • Eoin shared from The Heroes: Three men. One battle. No Heroes. by Joe Abercrombie
    ‘Patience is as fearsome a weapon as rage. More so, in fact, ’cause fewer men have it.’
    Note: Fine line
