Eggshell Skull by Bri Lee

Eggshell Skull | Bri Lee

Dad often came home with stories about the best and worst in human beings. We talked about why people did bad things. Life was understood as a series of choices, actions and consequences.

It didn‘t keep me interested.

This was so good but too long! I ended up skipping to the end at around Chapter 66 or so. I didn‘t feel that I needed to go back, I felt like I knew what had happened. #nofomo

This quote stood out to me because I feel like entitled new money people also have a very creamy vibe.

The more Jessica changed her face and body, the less secure she got.

I couldn‘t handle this. I only got 100 pages in before giving up. The whole first 100 is about her interviewing people after traumatic events. I love Chat10 so I was expecting the book to be more about her. No no no!

I‘m bailing on this. If it gets better after chapt 3, let me know and I‘ll try again.

You learn nothing very profound about yourself simply by being bullied; but by bullying someone else you can something you can never forget.

About the decisions we make and the influence they have on our search for meaning. An analysis of the yearn for profits over ethics. This book was written in 95‘ so some of the references are a bit outdated: although it does have some contemporary/timeless themes. I wouldn‘t bother reading this, but some may find it a useful reminder that meaning can‘t be found in the enduring fight for money. And will be found in charitable actions instead.

I loved this book. I read it as part of a constitutional law subject at uni. Anyone interested in the way in which race and gender influences judge made law should definitely read this beautifully written and highly articulate book.

Goes on and on with nothing interesting ever happening.
