I’ve started to listening to books on CD in an effort to ease the monotony of driving to and from work. My present choice is “Wyrms” by Orson Scott Card. So far I like the book quite a bit, but this one quote is priceless:

“He won’t be awful, Lyra. The negotiators would never have come this far if he had a second head growing out of his shoulder”

“Nobody gets second heads anymore,” said Lyra. “They have a vaccine for it.”

Poor child, thought Patience. She was usually bright enough to understand such an obvious iron as that.

Here’s the Google book search result.
