La vita religiosa di ognuno di essi aveva un unico scopo: This book is so loved and well worn In this ive of writing, brushes with death are frequent but are never to be taken seriously. Moreover, as he insists this book is a work of fiction, I cannot grasp why he didn’t write anything more interesting than this plotless book.
