Mehso-so

Overall, I enjoyed it, but while some stories got me addicted to the book, others took me ages to get into. It is very well written, but I'm not seeing myself re-reading it in the future, so I'll be passing it along.

This book is a compilation of five short stories. So far:

1st story: boring drama situation
2nd story: plot twist, wow, did not see that coming! :D

Just started the 3rd one.

In honor of #Veteran'sDay I'm posting this awesome collection of five #novellas that explore the exquisite conjunction of love and death.

In particular the fifth novella entitled #TheGreatLover is a historical fiction about a #WWI #Poet loosely based on #WilfredOwen, #SiegfriedSassoon, #RupertBrooke and #A.G.West

So moving was this Novella that I chose to adapt this into a screenplay for an advanced screenwriting class at #IthacaCollege
