"it is so short and jumbled and jangled, sam, because there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre. everybody is supposed to be dead, to never say or want anything ever again. everything is supposed to be very quiet after a massacre, and it always is, except for the birds.

in the process of reading it now.
with the intent on finishing it before its five-year anniversary in america. i just defeated volkner. here's my team:
- infernape lv. 46
- hippowdon lv. 45
- lucario lv. 45
- lapras lv. 46
- abomasnow lv. 45
- spiritomb lv. 45
i'm perfectly aware that lapras can't be found pre-national dex, but i had it in my party from a while ago (it was traded to me as an egg for something, i think). i like him, though, and he's been helpful

I'm muscling my way through The Brothers Karamazov right now. I just finished "The Grand Inquisitor," and I have to say that this novel is easily becoming a candidate for my favorite novel. The Karamazov family is just amazingly entertaining, and I've really been thinking a lot about the religious discussion raised in the book. So yeah, I'm about 250 pages
