Review: Constancia and Other Stories for Virgins

User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

Almost impossible to rate - a book of five novellas: first two were quite good, third was awesome, last two were UNREADIBLE. I've been trying to get through them for months now, but I admit defeat, I'm giving up. Could've rated four stars if the last two weren't so... weird. Read full review
