Wisdom of Anita Blake: Micah

January 8, 2018

I didn’t really care for this book due to its length.  It seemed more like a between the numbers novella than an actual part of the series.  Still has some good comments in it.

  • …good guys don’t trash you just because you turned them down.
  • …looks aren’t everything.  Personality, good manners, sanity — all nice things to have.
  • You cannot be angry and grin at the same time.  Dammit.
  • Why is it that the simplest plans are sometimes the hardest to do?
  • …a comfortable garter belt…with a pair of nice hose was actually more comfortable than panty hose.
  • Men react really oddly if they knew you were wearing stockings and a garter belt.
  • Why was it a crime for a woman to look good?…if I wore jeans and a T-shirt I got complaints that I was too casual and needed to look more professional.  Sometimes you  just can’t win for losing.
  • …the moment you care…a man has you.  He owns a little piece of your soul, and he can beat you to death with it.  Don’t believe me?  Then you’ve never been in love and had it go to hell.  Lucky you.
  • …you can’t hide from yourself.  Can’t hide from your own head going ugly.  Unfortunately.
  • I’d learned to talk about my paranoias.  Otherwise they grew.
  • …love was hard.
  • …the American government–whatever the branch–has never grasped the concept of tribal identity.
  • The truth may not set you free, but used carefully, it can confuse the hell out of your enemies.
  • You don’t question survivors about the trauma; you let them come to you.
  • Micah was well endowed.  Not just long but wide, which I’d discovered could be a harder problem to deal with than length.  There were positions you could do or modify for length.  Width you just had to adjust to.
  • …there are just as many bastards out there who are girls as bastards who are guys.
  • Never be embarrassed about how your body reacts…It’s a gift.
  • People can make fish jokes, but not every woman tastes the same.
  • People see what they want to see, unless forced to see the truth.
