Through Fresh Eyes 7: The Cassidy Chronicles

The final few chapters of Volume 1, Act 1: Run Like Hell were thrilling, but the cliffhanger was absolutely agonizing! Though my favourite part must’ve been the very beginning, the semi-tender morning exchange (with the childish-but-fun bet regarding Cass’s driving) was dripping with romance and felt that hallmark-movie moment, you know? However, the following sceneContinue reading “Through Fresh Eyes 7: The Cassidy Chronicles”

Anna’s Anachronisms: Alexander Graham Bell versus A Modern-Day Cellphone

The bell of the café door dinged loudly as I swung it open and stepped through its faded, brown threshold. Ignoring the chime again as the door swung shut, I scanned the wooden booths (of which there weren’t many) as I handed my coat to the man standing by the door with a gracious smile.Continue reading “Anna’s Anachronisms: Alexander Graham Bell versus A Modern-Day Cellphone”

Anna’s Anachronisms: Karl Benz versus the Tesla Model S

I watched with anticipation as Karl Benz approached the car from the door of a large, brown brick building.

From my vantage in the driver’s seat, I could see the shock wash acrossContinue reading “Anna’s Anachronisms: Karl Benz versus the Tesla Model S”

Through Fresh Eyes: Cassidy Chronicles 4

This week’s reading was absolutely amazing! The cohesiveness between leaving the elevator with Ken and Cass and escaping the mysterious intruder in OutLook was magnificent. And the secret freezer door, who would have ever expected that? I continue to be impressed by the technology Adam both describes and backs-up scientifically. Most (if not all) ofContinue reading “Through Fresh Eyes: Cassidy Chronicles 4”

Anna’s Anachronisms: Johannes Gutenberg versus the Modern Day Printer

As I crossed the brick-laden street and nodded to a man dressed in beige, bearing a POLIZI badge, I caught site of my target through the clear window of the library. Johannes waved in greeting as I entered the golden ornate doors to meet him, and ignoring the glares of patrons, follow him down aContinue reading “Anna’s Anachronisms: Johannes Gutenberg versus the Modern Day Printer”
