About Wistful Angst

I write unimportant reviews. I am always on my Kindle and my Ipad - so, my thinking derives from pixilated ideas. <br /><br />If the book or subject is trash but I adored it anyway, I'll give it five stars instead of the one it deserves. When something is clearly genius but leaves me cold, I'll give it one star and be a hater in my review. So, bite me. I'm belletristic. Revilers welcome. <br /><br />Although I love books, I'm not an 'Arts' person by education. I'm an ordinary person.

    But Zach has to take himself in because—” Here Jim paused and looked around the room. “Because he did it. That’s the first reason. The other first reason is that if he goes in right away and says, ‘Oh, stupid me,’ they’ll probably be easier on him. But the Burgesses aren’t fugitives. That’s not who we are. We don’t hide.”
    Note: Hmmmm.
