    💩Utter Crap

    Pardon me, but this is a bullshit. I know that I'm not a writer and a critic neither, however this book was absolutely nonsense to me, hold on, but there is some shock, emotions, intrigues in the nonsense, so this book is worse than a nonsense. With all respect to an author, but it's not worthy of reading. Nowadays there is an standard that called gender equality, and indeed there is, so this book is worthless in perspective of whatever the author thought it would be a issue to vivid gender inequality

    No one is better at this than Virginia. But really a poem. Funny and profound. We must be kinder to each other. We have all been here before.Dizzying ride.

    Of wall or substance there was none. All was phantom. All was still. All was lit as for the coming of a dead Queen.
