    This is an interesting book, from the time I started reading it,

    This is an interesting book, from the time I started reading it, my intent was to find out what happened next. There was a moment that left me wondering, but it all became clear towards the end. This is a wonderfully, enjoyable book that I liked very much and I highly recommend it.

    This is a very heart wrenching work by J. D. "Brutus"

    This is a very heart wrenching work by J. D. "Brutus" Bruton.
    He put his deep resource of inventiveness into this story.
    I highly recommend this to anyone who is sentient and prescient to the time period he depicts.
    The ending is classic.
    Get it and absorb it.
