War Stories

This week, I read ‘The Things They Carried’ by Tim O’Brien. This was an autobiographical book about a drafted US soldier’s time in Vietnam. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/133518.The_Things_They_Carried Generally speaking, I refuse to watch war films, especially those recommended to me as ‘good’ and ‘realistic’ because I can’t bear seeing so much death. Industrially manufactured deaths now, the […]

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan: A Review

The Goodreads Review Lisa See is another author who actually tweeted me directly when I mentioned her work, which I feel was pretty special. Just by taking the time to acknowledge my interest in her work, I feel more inclined to pursue her writing and also continue researching the bizarre and fascinating tradition of foot […]

Overrate əʊvəˈreɪt/ verb: have a higher opinion of (someone or something) than is deserved.

Heart Shaped Box: A Review

9.5/10 This book was recommended to me by one of my  Twitter followers after a plea for a decent horror book, this has taught me that I can trust the advice of strangers.
