Heinlein‘s writing style is very evident throughout this book and this is probably one of his most famous works. The story while based in the future, is definitely driven by the current […]

    Transformers: Age Of Extinction Review

    I went into the fourth installment in the Transformers movie franchise, “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” (AOS) as a Michael Bay Transformers movie veteran. Gone was the awe and childlike wonder of seeing the heroes of my youth recreated on screen in all of their majestic, high-definition glory. Long gone was the hope of experiencing a […]
