- Hver gang du forlater meg - Linnéa Myhre
De er ikke sammen lenger, det er slutt. Han sier at han fortsatt elsker henne, men det går ikke lenger. Han trenger tid for seg selv, trenger å vite hvem han er uten henne. Du fortjener noe annet, noe bedre, sier han. En annen enn meg.
Likevel kommer han stadig tilbake til henne. Banker på døren hennes, ringer, spør om hun vil være med ut, om de skal være sammen i kveld, i natt. Så forlater han henne igjen morgenen etter. Og hun tar ham imot, igjen og igjen. Hva annet kan hun gjøre? Han er jo hennes livs store kjærlighet.
- Diary of an oxygen thief - Anonymous (currently reading)
Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant and, somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He's blinded by love. She by ambition. Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
- Confessions og a sociopath
M. E. Thomas is a high-functioning non-criminal sociopath. She is charismatic, ambitious and successful. You would be charmed by her if you met her, might even be seduced by her. You would not realise that she is studying you to find your flaws, that she is ruthlessly manipulative, has no empathy and does not feel guilt or remorse. But she does like people - she likes to touch them, mould them and ruin them. She could be your friend or your boss. She could be you . . .
