Quote from Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs

We all know deep down it doesn’t make us happy, to be endlessly working to buy shiny consumer objects we have seen in advertisements. But we keep doing it, day after day. It in fact occupies most of our time on earth. We could slow down. We could work less and buy less. It would prevent the environment—our habitat—from being systematically destroyed. But we don’t do it, because we are isolated in our individual cages. In that environment, the idea of consuming less, in fact, fills us with panic. All this stuff, Bruce believes, is filling the hole where normal human connection should be.

Well said!

Delta Don whats that Rose?

The Rosie Effect (Don Tillman, #2)The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Within the context of a sequel, this book is top notch. It is interesting and reverberates all the charm of the first book. I love the crisp simple writing style, and the development of the characters. Despite the story having the predictable path of any romantic comedy, the author does a terrific job meandering along that direct path.

In combination with the first book, the story and characters deserve a place on everyone's bookshelf.
