    2. Excellent Read That Melds Complex Themes Gracefully “What the Thunder Said,” authored by Mr. Walter Blaire, is an excellent read, that melds complex, varied themes, in a subtle manner, that can challenge readers.

From the crazy, unorganized madhouse at the war front to another madhouse inside a soldier's home, you'll have plenty to keep your mind engaged. The story is not always easy to understand, but the pieces come toge [...]

    5. Always Fight A different kind if Wi-Fi . You will find yourself in the middle of a war full of machines -or are they- and many strange characters all fighting for what?
