The author has often been told that he does things the wrong way. For instance, he could walk before he could crawl. His parents were also informed that he went about reading the wrong way.

Andrew Leon Well, you know, anything that takes an actual look at something and examines is better than "OH IT WAS SO AWESOME!" Which, you know, is almost the only thing acceptable these days.


Madeleine Hi there, and thank you for the friend request! Yeah, I was just not as taken with Quiet as so many others seem to be -- glad to hear that you found my review thoughtful, as I feared it would read as something far bitchier than that. :) I look forward to whatever bookish chats our future holds!


Andrew Leon sure!
