    Strange, crazy, dark, imaginative, thought-provoking, fun and twisted. "It occurs to me that the peculiarity of the most things that we think of as fragile, is of tough they truly are."Neil Gaiman`s F...

    The two stars was a compromise. This book is a mixed bag of short stories and poems. In the Harry Potter books, there is a kind of sweet called Bertie Potts Every Flavour Jelly Beans. Sometimes you ge...
