50/50 Friday - Favourite Book That's the Most/Least Quotable

It's a shame in this instance that 50/50 Friday is a Friday thing because I would have loved to have started with:

"It must be a Thursday, said Arthur, I never could get the hang of Thursdays."

50/50 Friday is hosted at The Butterfly Reader and at Blue Eye Books.

"What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favourite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know!"

This week's topic:
Favourite Book That's the Most/Least Quotable

So I have one book from which I only ever remember one quote but it is a wonderfully evocative one:

"Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again."

And another book that I have been randomly quoting multiple lines from over at least three decades. I'll limit myself to just a few here:

"Lovely crinkly edges."

"I get this pain in all the diodes down my left-hand side."

"Life? Don't talk to me about life!"

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."

I'll leave you all to work out which book is which!
