Quotes – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“That’s what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It’s geometrically progressive – all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.”

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books.”

“Moses: God or crowd control?!?”

“I sometimes think I prefer suitors in books rather than right in front of me. How awful, backward, cowardly, and mentally warped that will be if it turns out to be true.”

    Oh my God! you’ve read this book!!!!!! I loooooove this book… *jumps in excitment*

    it’s sucha lovely lovely book for every reader, I wanna be a part of such a society around people who read…. I just felt so happy after I read it, and the idea that it’s all in letters is just wonderful.
    Did I say how much I loved it?!

    Yep I loved it so much… the whole method of using telegrams and letters is just so nice.

    I loved Elizabeth and wanted to meet her, I loved the kid, hated the American publisher… and wished Stephan wasn’t gay so he would end up with Juliet instead of what his name …. i forgot.

    I enjoyed the failed Ms Marple at the end of the book… i felt sorry for the old lady. But loved the Oscar Wilde bit

    Oh i can’t remember what was his name either though I liked his awkwardness and how he got to meet her in the first place. I thought there might have been something between her and her long time friend, so I was shocked he was gay!

    I can’t remember the Oscar Wilde bit! 😮 I’ve only read it like 6 months ago, but in my defense I finished it in like a day so I went over it really fast. Perhaps I should pick it up again sometime…
    I just wished more people know about this book!

    I heard about it in 2009 but never had the chance to read it, like there was a huge buzz about it in Europe when it was published so i found it a few days ago and read it in like 3 days.
