My lip stings, and when I take my hand away from it, there is blood on my fingertips. I must have bitten it during the test. The Dauntless woman administering my aptitude test-Tori, she said her name was-gives me a strange look as she pulls her black hair back and ties it in a knot. Her arms are marked up and down with ink, flames and rays of light and hawk wings. She sounds and looks casual, but it's a studied casualness, learned from years of practice. I know it when I see it.
I chose food over a weapon. I threw myself in the path of the dog to save the little girl. I knew that after I made those choices, the test would end and I would receive Abnegation as a result. And I don't know that I would have made different choices if my father hadn't coached me, hadn't controlled every part of my aptitude test from afar. So what was I expecting? What faction did I want?
Any of them. Any of them but Abnegation. I don't care what she says-this isn't a safe room. There are no safe rooms, no safe truths, no safe secrets to tell.
I can still feel the dog's teeth closing around my arm, tearing my skin. I nod to Tori and start toward the door, but just before I leave, her hand closes around my elbow. But you never will. I return to the cafeteria and sit down at the Abnegation table, among the people who barely know me.
My father doesn't permit me to come to most community events. He claims that I'll cause a disruption, that I'll do something to hurt his reputation. I don't care. I'm happier in my room, in the silent house, than surrounded by the deferential, apologetic Abnegation.
The consequence of my constant absence, though, is that the other Abnegation are wary of me, convinced there's something wrong with me, that I'm ill or immoral or strange. Even those willing to nod at me in greeting don't quite meet my eyes.
I sit with my hands clenching my knees, watching the other tables, while the other students finish their aptitude tests. The Erudite table is covered in reading material, but they aren't all studying-they're just making a show of it, trading conversation instead of ideas, their eyes snapping back to the words every time they think someone's watching them. The Candor are talking loudly, as always. The Amity are laughing, smiling, pulling food from their pockets and passing it around.
The Dauntless are raucous and loud, slung over the tables and chairs, leaning on one another and poking one another and teasing. I wanted any other faction. Any other faction but mine, where everyone has already decided that I am not worth their attention.
Finally an Erudite woman enters the cafeteria and holds up a hand for silence. The Abnegation and Erudite quiet down right away, but it takes her shouting "Quiet!
The Choosing Ceremony will be tomorrow at the Hub. Plan to arrive at least ten minutes before it begins. You are dismissed. I know the path my fellow Abnegation will take out of here, down the hallway and out the front doors to the bus stop.
They could be there for over an hour letting other people get on in front of them. I don't think I can bear any more of this silence. Instead of following them, I slip out a side door and into an alley next to the school.
I've taken this route before, but usually I creep along slowly, not wanting to be seen or heard. Today all I want to do is run. I sprint to the end of the alley and into the empty street, leaping over a sinkhole in the pavement. My loose Abnegation jacket snaps in the wind, and I peel it from my shoulders, letting it trail behind me like a flag and then letting it go.
I push the sleeves of my shirt up to my elbows as I run, slowing to a jog when my body can no longer stand the sprint. It feels like the entire city is rushing past me in a blur, the buildings blending together. I hear the slap of my shoes like the sound is separate from me. Finally I have to stop, my muscles burning.
I'm in the factionless wasteland that lies between the Abnegation sector and Erudite headquarters, Candor headquarters, and our common places. At every faction meeting, our leaders, usually speaking through my father, urge us not to be afraid of the factionless, to treat them like human beings instead of broken, lost creatures.
But it never occurred to me to be afraid of them. I move to the sidewalk so I can look through the windows of the buildings. Most of the time all I see is old furniture, every room bare, bits of trash on the floor.
When most of the city's residents left-as they must have, since our current population doesn't fill every building-they must not have left in a hurry, because the spaces they occupied are so clean. Nothing of interest remains. When I pass one of the buildings on the corner, though, I see something inside. The room just beyond the window is as bare as any of the others I've walked by, but past the doorway inside I can see a single ember, a lit coal.
I frown and pause in front of the window to see if it will open. At first it won't budge, and then I wiggle it back and forth, and it springs upward.
I push my torso through first, and then my legs, toppling to the ground inside in a heap of limbs. My elbows sting as they scrape the floor. The building smells like cooked food and smoke and sweat. I inch toward the ember, listening for voices that will warn me of a factionless presence here, but there's only silence.
In the next room, the windows are blacked out by paint and dirt, but a little daylight makes it through them, so I can see that there are curled pallets scattered on the floor all over the room, and old cans with bits of dried food stuck inside them. In the center of the room is a small charcoal grill.
Most of the coals are white, their fuel spent, but one is still lit, suggesting that whoever was here was here recently.

This story about the workings of the human mind is explored through the personalities of two fascinating individuals so fundamentally different from each other that they seem unlikely friends or colleagues.
Review 4. Absolutely wonderful. The book moves at a brisk pace, never dull, and fleshes out the men behind the scientific work. This vantage point into where Kahneman and Tversky came from, the events that shaped them, their intellectual make-ups, and the alchemy of their partnership is a real treat. This added depth to the scientists only makes me appreciate their work all the more.
Highly recommended for anyone, but especially those who have read Thinking Fast, And Slow, any book on behavioral economics, or students of how human cognition leads us astray.
A fantastic book that I couldn't put down. English Books pinned post 17 Dec The Constant Soldier has the pace of a thriller with characters and themes that are nuanced and subtle" The Times The pain woke him up. The train had stopped and somewhere, up above them, the drone of aircraft engines filled the night sky. He could almost remember her smile. It must be the morphine.
He had managed not to think about her for months now. Paul Brandt, a soldier in the German army, returns wounded and ashamed from the bloody chaos of the Eastern front to find his village home much changed and existing in the dark shadow of an SS rest hut - a luxurious retreat for those who manage the concentration camps, run with the help of a small group of female prisoners who - against all odds - have so far survived the war. When, by chance, Brandt glimpses one of these prisoners, he realizes that he must find a way to access the hut.
For inside is the woman to whom his fate has been tied since their arrest five years before, and now he must do all he can to protect her.
But as the Russian offensive moves ever closer, the days of this rest hut and its SS inhabitants are numbered. And while hope - for Brandt and the female prisoners - grows tantalizingly close, the danger too is now greater than ever. And, in a forest to the east, a young female Soviet tank driver awaits her orders to advance. I was gripped to the very last page" Antonia Hodgson, award-winning author of A Devil in the Marshalsea "An elegant and powerful novel which sheds light upon a bleak and lesser known period of the war William Ryan has conjured up both a gripping love story and thriller" Richard Foreman, author of Warsaw.
Constant Soldier, The - William Ryan. Expand text… I loved it. William Ryan writes with a simple, elegant and utterly poetic style that just immerses you totally into the reading experience of it. Character study, setting, plot, everything working on every level, that is the bottom line.
That is not technical writing skill that is creative genuis right there. YES its one of those sorry everyone who blames me for their extreme book downloading The story itself is emotive, thought provoking and completely engaging first page to last, I suffered huge amounts of book trauma the good kind a fair bit of fingernail biting and all the rest.
The plot is taut and authentic, the descriptive prose practically flawless — if you are an emotionally charged reader like me you are just going to devour this and if you are of the more practical head screwed on variety the very least that will happen is you will appreciate the skill.
Although I dare anyone to come away from The Constant Soldier without at least one pure emotional sense running through them, whatever that may be.
So for that reason I give it a Highly Recommended tag as if that was even close to being enough. English Books pinned post 16 Dec Striking out on her own, she must leave behind her beloved Momma and sister Hazel and takes refuge in a Georgia brothel run by a freewheeling, gun-toting Jewish madam named Cynthia.
Having been taken in as an infant by a free slave named Charles, Josey has never known her mother, who was murdered at her birth. Josey soon becomes caught in the tide of history when news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaches the declining estate and a day of supposed freedom quickly turns into a day of unfathomable violence that will define Josey-and her lost mother-for years to come.
Deftly weaving together the stories of Josey and Naomi-who narrates the entire novel unable to leave her daughter alone in the land of the living-Grace is a sweeping, intergenerational saga featuring a group of outcast women during one of the most compelling eras in American history.
It is a universal story of freedom, love, and motherhood, told in a dazzling and original voice set against a rich and transporting historical backdrop. Natashia Deon - Grace. I loved, loved,loved this book. I have really enjoyed a lot of books recently but none that have pulled me in so deeply,made me care for the characters so intensely or riveted my soul to a story so powerfully. It is so hard to believe that this is her debut novel.. Grace begins with a murder on an Alabama plantation.
I hate to say much more because I don't want to give away any spoilers. Suffice it to say that the story takes place over 30 years, up to the years after the Civil War. How justice, mercy and grace unfold, woven into the plight of women's inferior status make this a book of both fury and tribulations.. If only my heart could handle I would read this again.. English Books pinned post 14 Dec Two years after vanishing into the Sudanese desert, the leader of a British archeological expedition, Professor Harold McCabe, comes stumbling out of the sands, frantic and delirious, but he dies before he can tell his story.
The mystery deepens when an autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: His strange remains are returned to London for further study, when alarming news arrives from Egypt.
Fearing the worst, a colleague of the professor reaches out to a longtime friend: Painter Crowe, the director of Sigma Force. The call is urgent, for Professor McCabe had vanished into the desert while searching for proof of the ten plagues of Moses.
As the pandemic grows, a disturbing question arises. Are those plagues starting again? Before Director Crowe can investigate, a mysterious group of assassins leaves behind a fiery wake of destruction and death, erasing all evidence. To unravel a secret going back millennia, Director Crowe and Commander Grayson Pierce will be thrust to opposite sides of the globe.
One will search for the truth, traveling from the plague-ridden streets of Cairo to a vast ancient tomb buried under the burning sands of the Sudan; the other will struggle to stop a mad genius locked within a remote Arctic engineering complex, risking the lives of all those he holds dear.
Review A mysterious new virus has suddenly been unleashed on the world, but this might not be the first time it has plagued humanity. Instead, the entire group went missing. Several theories arose as to what might have happened to Professor McCabe and the rest of the group, which included his son, Rory. All of them were put on hold, though, when McCabe himself came stumbling out of the desert ten days later. Unfortunately, he died before he could receive medical help. It turned out that it was, indeed, Harold McCabe.
Their suspicions were confirmed during an autopsy. Additional testing was scheduled, but within twenty-four hours, everyone present inside the exam room during the autopsy fell violently ill. The incident, it turns out, was not contained. Soon the virus, whatever it was, spread around Cairo and beyond. Scientists quickly learned that the virus was airborne and highly contagious, with a mortality rate similar to ebola.
But beyond that, it was quite unlike anything anyone had ever seen. When clues surfaced suggesting that everything might actually be linked to an old vial of darkened red water collected from the Nile River thousands of years ago, Sigma Force is called in to figure out if the virus is a work of bioterrorism or an act of God. Mixing historical fiction, lots of science, cutting-edge new weaponry, and another impossible scenario for the brave men and women at Sigma to try and conquer, The Seventh Plague is vintage James Rollins.
Strap in tight, because James Rollins holds nothing back and will leave you breathless. English Books pinned post 12 Dec What results is tragic and riveting, as both men are forced to confront notions of love and betrayal in the face of the vastly different tracks their lives have taken.
Sabina Murray - Valiant Gentlemen. Review What happens when the explorers return? Sabrina Murray explores the intimate lives of the men and women who left Europe to explore the world at the turn of the century.
She brings them back to England, to their wives and families and then sends them back out again, always somehow uncomfortable, at home everywhere and nowhere, loving and hating the families that anchor them.
Murray probes the moral ambiguities of colonial exploitation and of English mores, while watching the world edge closer and finally into war.

Perfect for reading by the fire with loved ones, or while traveling home for the holidays.
Enjoy the season of peace and goodwill, mystery, and a little bit of magic courtesy of one of our most fearless and accomplished writers.
Review A very unusual Christmas book. Winterson loves Christmas for its reflection, ritual, love and community. The recipes in the book are less about putting on a holiday show and more about how food can help make Christmas and life merrier and brighter. All throughout, there's a bit of history, some autobiography, and this wish: Least favorite: Even someone as English as Winterson should know not to have New Yorkers talk about "fairy lights" and "sledges.
