Lo ami, vero?”
“Credo di non sapere cosa significhi amare.”
“Io invece credo che tu lo sappia. Lo dimostra il modo in cui parli di lui, nonostante gli sforzi che fai per odiarlo.

A good book, Marcus, can not be measured only by its last words, but by the collective effect of all the words that preceded them. About half a second after finishing your book, after reading the last word, the reader must feel overwhelmed with a powerful feeling; For a moment he must only think of everything he has just read, look at the cover and smile with a touch of sadness because he will miss all the characters. A good book, Marcus, is a book that we regret to have finished.
