Throwback Tuesday: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Genre: Romance Age Recommended: 13 and up Guys, it’s been four years since I first read this book and the ending legitimately never gets easier to handle.

An analysis of short stories by Maxim Gorky

Alexei Maximovich Peshkov, primarily known as Maxim Gorky, was a Russian author who wrote during the realist era.

Gorky, by many authors is currently considered a Marxist Feminist, because a lot of his works hinged on the idea that for women to truly be equal to men, they would have to first revolt against the government … Continue reading An analysis of short stories by Maxim Gorky
