The Scar - China Miéville: A Review

Date finished: January 2nd 2017

Since I have been plugging away at a modern education for the last year, I have kept up on (some) things outside of it. The “modern” education I refer to is that technical education where you learn exactly your vocation and (almost) nothing else. 387 more words
