Apologies, I have neglected Booklikes of late, but I'm back with a vengeance, in more ways than one. Here's a quote I particularly enjoyed. I'm sure you can all guess who it's alluding to, satirically, of course:
"How would you write it? If you decided to write it's story?"
Now it was Sam's turn to smile.
"Oh, I don't know..."
"I do," she said confidently. She pushed off from the railing and began to slowly circle Sam as she talked, forcing him to turn to follow her. "You would start with a character from some seemingly perfect small town, someone not unlike yourself. You know, a little bland."
Sam gave a snort. "Sounds good so far."
"And the house wouldn't be in the country; it would be right in the middle of town so you could overpopulate the book with too many characters and Midwestern details. No offence."
