The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem. Which is Latin and it means No more things should be presumed to exist than are absolutely necessary. I haven’t been reading much lately; at least not anything really good. But that was until yesterday, when I read a book called : The Curious Incident of the Dog inContinue reading “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon”

Tarzan? (Illustration)

…when Artificial Intelligence takes over the Fiction World… Remember the scene in ‘Tarzan’, when Tarzan takes Jane’s hand and compares it to his – when he realizes they are the same kind?
