Beauty (Quotes)

The castle rose up before us like sunrise, its towers and battlements reaching hundreds of feet into the sky.  It was of gray stone, huge block set on block; but it caught the sunlight like a dolphin's back at dawn.  It was as big as a city, I thought; not one building, but many, tied together by corridors and courtyards; I stared around at what I could see of the wings and walls of it stretching in many directions.  I could not begin to imagine the number of rooms it must contain.  But it stood silent, the windows dark, apparently deserted.  But not quite deserted, I told myself unhappily.  Oh dear.
- Part 3, Chapter 1 page 131

I love this imagery....  It's magnificent!!

Review on Monday!

    It's been so long since I've read this book, but I remember really enjoying it. I forgot how descriptive the writing was. I need to reread this one soon.
