*** February - What are you reading? em Club Read 2013 (Abril 2013)

Resenhas

It's definitely very well written, but too "professional" for my taste. It's like a brand new Led technology TV displaying a nature scene that looks so crisp and sharp that it has transcended reality. Supra-real. I found it mechanical, not involving. I kept reading because I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on something before the end. Relieved when done. Forgettable.
