2004: At several points in this book about a hostage-taking, I went looking for someone to read aloud to - the language was that beautiful. This is one of my favorites from Patchett, though Run and State of Wonder are up there too.

All of the love and the longing a body can contain was spun into not more than two and a half minutes of song, and when she came to the highest notes it seemed that all they had been given in their lives and all they had lost came together and made a weight that was almost impossible to bear.
