My name is Adriann (review name lady ansel). I am a retired medical professional, disabled, and battling cancer for the fifth time, living in Virginia. I have been an avid reader since I was a child. Reading great books written by fantastic authors brightens my days helping me deal with my daily pain by taking me to another place and time.
My philosophy for writing a review is as follows:
Great authors perform art with words. Having the capability to make someone happy or sad and travel to different times and places has always impressed me. I write reviews not only on the story but also the author. How well do they set the scene, develop the characters, and progress the plot/story along. A good story affects me emotionally and I also include those feelings in my reviews. Through my reviews I hope to encourage others to read and enjoy the art of great authors of our past, present, and future.
