Review: Fear of Life

User Review  - Greg - Goodreads

Overall, a thoughtful book full of insight, which was made less enjoyable through obscure difficult to read passages, and fantastical and incredulous excepts. As you can imagine, I find it hard believe this book will leave a lasting impression. Read full review
