Most Helpful

The most awful book I ha e ever read.

Why I kept going I don't know. Not a likeable person in it. Fortunately totally unbelievable and you would not have gone a million miles near these people let alone stay in their company. No understanding of domestic violence at all. With a broken spine apparently she still enjoyed it! Dreadful. Please don't waste your time. Very two dimensional.

Twisted short story

Perhaps a cautionary tale. Or indulgent nonsense. A stranger punches you and you socialise with them as if they were friends? Well written of course but the description is relentless. Method writing? Try something a bit more inspiring if you know whats good for you. But who does?
