Henry Wilt does not want to go. Read it and enjoy. Book Depository Libros con entrega gratis en todo el mundo. I wouldn’t put it in the class of Wodehouse, but it certainly does have elements of his writing style. Todos los derechos reservados. Wilt’s life, in short, is dreary, repetitive, and wholly unsatisfying. The text is quite dated from the early 70s, aside from that I found it a fun read.

The story, of course, is absurd but that’s one of the things I enjoyed about it. Mostrando de 1 opiniones.
