Description of the Book:

The Book That Wouldn’t Burn PDF

Book Synopsis:

A boy has lived his whole life trapped within a vast library, older than empires and larger than cities.

A girl has spent hers in a tiny settlement out on the Dust where nightmares stalk and no one goes.

The world has never even noticed them. That’s about to change.

Their stories spiral around each other, across worlds and time. This is a tale of truth and lies and hearts, and the blurring of one into another. A journey on which knowledge erodes certainty, and on which, though the pen may be mightier than the sword, blood will be spilled and cities burned.

“It’s always the books you don’t have that call to you, you know that. Not the ones on your shelf. They can wait.”

“All books, no matter their binding, will fall to dust. The stories they carry may last longer. They might outlive the paper, the library, even the language in which they were first written.”

“All of us steal our lives. A little here, a little there. Some of it given, most of it taken. We wear ourselves like a coat of many patches, fraying at the edges, in constant repair. While we shore up one belief, we let go another. We are the stories we tell to ourselves. Nothing more.”

“There are no useless skills, girl. Only talents that have yet to find an application.

“They say that you can never go back—and that’s true. We change and so the places we return to will not seem the same.”

“an ocean of knowledge is apt to drown you long before it educates you. The art of learning was in selection,”

“The person who finished writing it was very different from the one who started it.”

“It’s always the books you don’t have that call to you, you know that. Not the ones already on your shelf. They can wait.”

“People don’t want truth. They say that they do but what they mean is that they want the truth to agree with them.”

“Without guilt we would all be monsters. And memory is the ink with which we list our crimes.”

“The black and white of truth blurred into grey under the relentless assault of an infinity of context, interpretation, perspectives, and opinion.”

“Many objects are an inherent invitation. A sharp edge invites you to cut. A coin wishes to be spent. A sword begs for violence. A door requires that you try to open it.”
