Books fall open, you fall in…

There is no WP-life without ‘awards’. Thanks to great blog ‘Daughter’s Diary’ QUESTIONS:  1. What’s your favorite fiction? A good book, any genre.

Book Review “Artemis”, Andy Weir

“Building a civilization is an ugly thing.” Andy Weir I never read (or watched) “The Martian”, but because I’m trying to write a sci-fi story, I decided to spend some of my free time studying the genre. “Artemis” caught my eye because it: Is short, Has a minimalistic design, Utilizes a nice font Has lots of dialogues What can I say about the book (in general)? Seems like the author figured it all out (pronounced with the...
