Coming back after a bit of a break. Needed to shake off a few things. Done with the unemployment, took a low-paying job so that I will be able to chase after this elusive writing dream.

He doesnt really... read
A review of SCORCHINGby fjs2836 on 07/30/2008There probably will not be a review of this story that does not compare it to "The Catcher in the Rye." It seems too easy to do, but since the author makes reference to Mr. Salinger in the work, it would seem that the comparisons are inevitable. And really the only comparison is that we have to angry young men who view the rest of the world as beneath them. The young man... read
