I lent it to a friend and after reading only a chapter he questioned the author's right to complain over such a matter as her mother dying, and the validity of her suffering which consequently…  Read

Free London activities are awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a city with so much readily available entertainment free of charge. From the museums and galleries to the plethora of parks and monuments. The discovery of the free comedy shows began with my move to East London, near…  Read
