Book Review: Who You Work For by Anthony David Mitchell

The title, Who You Work For, aptly describes the plot of the book. The author deserves an appreciation for his smart thinking. The reason I say this is because the protagonist, Thomas Moore, does not know who he works for. His job does not exactly fall into the category of normal jobs. He receives an envelope consisting of the required description of the target whom he must kill. According to Moore, he is helping the society by killing the people who have prevailed crime by assaulting someone. So, he thinks his work a charity. He killed without a blink in … Continue reading Book Review: Who You Work For by Anthony David Mitchell

For the Love of Tags! #FridayReflections

As I bid farewell to my judgemental side (or so I think), I begin to wonder about the society and its love of tags. Unknowingly, we are all sucked deep into the pit of tags. When we meet somebody, we want to know about their age, marital status, “children” status, job, and the list goes on. Believe it or not, many times our perception of the person is based on these tags. I would like to believe that I have been untouched by this tag based perception, but this is not true. I, too, begin judging a person based on … Continue reading For the Love of Tags! #FridayReflections
