message 7: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I really don't like the cover for Can't Even. It took me way too many attempts to figure out what the title even was. Not a friendly cover for people with dyslexia.

message 8: by ElissonWood (new)

ElissonWood Great list! I need to read them all. I'm a bookworm and read every free minute, and sometimes I write reviews for the Freebooksummary platform. The last of my work is about dramatic irony in hamlet as I like to write such an analysis. Actually, it helps to understand the characters of the book.

message 9: by Annie (new)

Annie Segaert The book of 2 ways was so disappointing 😢

message 10: by Renata (new)

Renata Warning to anyone considering The Book of Two Ways - please read the reviews I wish I would have. Is the author is experiencing some kind of midlife crisis of what if's..? Includes very raw and graphic detail what happens ( step by step ) to a body as it shuts down and then after death as well... I wish the book description included a warning about that. Realms of pages about Egyptology, quantum physics, a very muddled story. And the end ????? As one reader said - a very dissatisfying novel. Has put me off on any future reads by this author.
