Удивительно упоительные рассказы. Каждое слово, каждое предложение вырваны из души автора и невольно соеденины с мыслями читателя в одно единое целое. Это то целое, которое порождается искренностью к своим мыслям, к ближнему, к миру.

Awesome stories from genius woman. She explores obvious thing with her clear wit and make her reader think about surroundings. She makes us conscious and it is great.
