Next year on this day I will play the lottery due to the good luck which the superstitious among us say comes from 11/12/22. For today, I will simply copy paste my Goodreads review of Razorblade Tears by SA Cosby.
Ike and Buddy Lee, two men on a mission. Couldn’t be more different yet deep down, they have their own shaded pasts and parental love/regrets in common. I was surprised by whodunnit at the ending. Lots of action and good storytelling throughout. Recommended read.
Now here’s a few good quotes from my commonplace book.
- Buddy Lee Those are some $10 words you’re using.
- Death had laid his cold hands on this place and stilled its heart.
- It came out in one breath. One long exhaliation that gathered up all the frailty and ineffectiveness and misery and mourning that filled him like the stuffing in a scarecrow and scattered it into the ether.
- Nobody knows the last time is going to be the last time until it’s too late.
If you’ve read the book or would like to discuss, I welcome your feedback in the comments.
As always, more to come.
