Duskfall

I have so much I want to say about reading this book and I know already that I'm going to go in 100 different directions throughout this review. So I wanted to apologize in advance.

I've had a hard time choosing which one, because both incorporate themes and issues that tie together, regarding real conversations, technology and the growing struggle--or perhaps simply a struggle I've noticed--regarding communication. It's something I've personally been struggling with for quite some time, yet… Continue reading The Crave for Conversation
