BOOK, THEATER & FILM REVIEWS
I've been doing a lot of reading lately and in an effort to clarify my thoughts about books
I began writing some reviews. The list continues to expand and now I have added a few
reviews of plays and films.

I can never tell when the mood to review something will strike me, so keep coming back
and read my analysis of some great and not-so-great works.
