Thursday Quotables: The Slade House

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is hosted by 
Bookshelf  Fantasies. Every week we highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! So, after a small absence from this weekly feature, I'm finally back on track. For this week, I'll share with you some quotes from David Mitchell's latest novel The Slade House. It's basically a ghost story, but it's amazing (I couldn't expect anything else from my favourite author).

The clock's really tall. I put my ear against its wooden chest and hear its heart: krunk...kronk...krunk...kronk... It has no hands. It's got words instead, on its old, pale-as-bone clock face, saying TIME IS and under that TIME WAS and under that TIME IS NOT.

If you don't feet into the system, the system makes life hell.

People are masks, with masks under those masks, and masks under those, and down you go.

Have you read The Slade House? Which one was your favourite quote?


  1. This has deep meanings and I really liked each of them. Nice pick of quotes, Aeriko! :)

    1. Thank you so much! There were very good quotes in this novel! :)

  2. I really like the TIME IS and TIME WAS bits. Sounds like a book that you can really sink into.

    1. It's impressive and creepy at the same time! It really gets you into the atosphere of a horror story :)
