Reviews of the Six Novels in Woodcuts


REUBEN

It was a surprisingly interesting book. Very highly recommended.

FELIX

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

ZARA

The book is a masterpiece that makes a richer soul, speech, and wider horizon.
