    Summary

    Excerpt 1: “The Revolution succeeded; it crumbled afterwards only because those whose lives got revolutionized did not follow up on the revolutionary success,” said the Bride, her words setting their closed hearts aflame. “This time, will you help us help you?”

    Excerpt 2: “Just helping the boys return to their old selves is not enough. Their schooling and future prospects will still be hindered whenever their being children of terrorists comes to light. Only by changing your world –- your society -- into one where criminals’ relatives are no longer assigned collective guilt can you truly save your brothers. This is the kind of revolution you must bring about: your Survival Strategy.”

    Summary

    Honestly, I don't know who or what I am. Or, at least, I can't express such complexities in mere sentences: my thought processes, my beliefs, my perspective. To be as descriptive and illustrative as I can is as few words as possible (which is a rather difficult feat for me), I'll say this: I feel as if, in essence, I've been armed with the mind of a well-versed philosopher, the heart of a reckless idealist, the emotional fragility of an adolescent, the social skills of a recluse, and of course, the vocabulary of a pompous dick. So please, bear with me. 

    Eva has never been a fan of Sherlock Holmes. She doesn't think his god damn cheekbones or his popped coat collar make his callous disposition any less vile. She doesn't think he's impossibly brilliant. No, she thinks he's arrogant and narcissistic, and that his blatant disregard for other people is unjustifiable. But when she finds him half-dead on the day of his “suicide,” she fixes him, and he inevitably burns her as quittance.

    (Herein lies an excess of self-deprecation, intricate language, smoking, belligerent sexual tension, heavy drinking, literary and classical music references, food porn, angst, and a generous helping of smut for good measure.)
