In My Own Words:
"Of apple-picking; I am overtired " wrote Robert Frost once and that pretty much sums how i feel about reviewing at this moment in time.
I have had my fill for the moment of the pedants & the puntuation police but more to the point with summer on the way , or at least what passes for one on this godforsaken Island , i wish to spend more time doing other things rather than wringing my head for lit… Read more

Interests

Ultrasport Laser Bicycle Safety Light Ultrasport
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The most interesting thing about this light are the laser lane indicators.

Forty Acres by Dwayne Alexander Smith
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Forty Acres raise a most salient question. Do heinous crimes committed in the past justify similar vengeful atrocities in the here & now? The obvious answer to that is an unequivocal no , but Forty Acres excitingly poses the question within the framework of a clever thriller.
Damon Darrell, an internationally famous trial lawyer, recruits lawyer Martin Grey, a courtroom rival, into a secret conspiracy of powerful black men determined to redress the historical wrongs perpetrated on blacks .Grey is carefully assimilated into their scheme but his moral strength and courage means it will not be as easy for him as it was for some of the others.
