It’s like this: you wake and watch TV, get in your car and listen to the radio you go to your little jobs or little school, but you don’t hear about that on the 6 o’clock news, why? ‘Cause nothing is really happening, and you go home and watch some more TV and maybe it’s a fun night and you go out and watch a movie. I mean it’s got so bad that half the people on TV, inside the TV, they’re watching TV. What are these people watching, people like me? (We Need to Talk About Kevin, 2011 )

You were ambitiousーfor your life, what it was like when you woke up in the morning, and not for some attainment. Like most people who did not answer a particular calling from an early age, you placed work beside yourself; any occupation would fill up your day but not your heart. I liked that most about you. I liked it enormously.

Yes I have finished We Need To Talk About Kevin (about 3 minutes ago) and out out of mini haul i’ve chosen to read this one next. Seen as it’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday and I’m forever alone, I thought i needed some love in my life. I don’t often read classics but i’m looking forward to getting into this one.

Look for my review of WNTTAK on Sunday
Have a great weekend
