Okay, in reality, I cannot explain how much I love Zusak’s writing style. It’s so unique and wonderful and innovative. He’s the only contemporary author that I feel is really poetic in his prose. His words don’t just sit on the page, they come to life. They sit beside the reader and whisper into his/her ear.
Oh, Sylvia. What I wouldn’t give to be able to meet you, just once. You take words by the throat; you write perfect metaphors and figurative language; you knit sentences together seamlessly. You are an artist. You are a genius.
You still live through your words, but I wish the world still had you. You left far too soon.
other notable authors: The Bronte sisters, Elizabeth Bishop, Virginia Woolf, Veronica Roth, Lois Lowry, Jack London, F. Scott Fitzgerald, C. S. Lewis, Stephen King
I also love Emily Dickinson, but I don’t think I’d want to meet her. I want her to remain a mystery.
