appreciate her style the content than made up forny possible stylistic incompatibility nd soon I started to find this book thoroughly enjoyable exhilarating dmirable delightfully unruly My Soul Then Sings andlso heart breakingAnd s I came to realize that there s no "way for me to write coherent review "for me to write coherent review decided to write one based on my random thoughts nd feelings separated by headings to create the illusion of coherenceThe blurbI d recommend skipping the sensationalist trashy blurb ltogether because based on that you might just think that this is well sensationalist nd trashy memoirbiography when in fact it s nything butWhat is this made ofThe book mostly consists of the text of Price s journals nd diaries from that roughly two year period when she

time driving up nd down through the Texas countryside reading books together discussing writing literature nd the downfall of civilization nd lso Haunted House Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, arguing lotAnd even though in the beginning I briefly thought that perhaps Price is just Sweet Southern Hearts (A Willow Hill Novel Book 3) a fan girl hanging on the words of Howard the Barbarian with
