Us Against You (2-2) Backman’s style is unique. I always like reading his writing because the narrator always takes an objective view of the story. For this type of story I think it’s perfect because it leaves the reader to draw their own opinions on the story without feeling the bias from the author. This … Continue reading Small Town, Big Hearts

It's totally over, but … Continue reading Comedy or Tragedy ?!
