They called her Tropical Mary...

A fabulous, highly engaged and engaging review just in from Tropical Mary.

"Mr Stitch did very well, and I commend him on creating relatable characters, ones that the reader will love to hate, and easily recognise without them feeling like tropes or caricatures."

"I have to mention the author’s world building skill. Set in a dystopian, near-future, Literature® has just enough of the familiar and different to keep the reader’s eye plastered to the pages."

"I could break down the various themes in the book, like the commoditisition of art, consumerism, radicalisation, terrorism, subjectivity, etc. but I won’t. This story is so artfully written that I think each person who reads it will take something different from it."
