    Tongue-in-cheek

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 19/01/2018

    » It has been a while a since I smiled while reading a book. My sense of humour is good and I don't hold back my laughter at something that tickles my funny bone. I find Thai double-entendres most amusing. This reviewer wishes books were funny. Those called hilarious by critics simply aren't.

    » Novels are supposedly fictional, imaginary. Similarities to persons and places are coincidental. Which is a legal way of saying: "Don't blame us" -- authors and publishers -- "for sticking it to actual people and/or places."

    The actual arch-enemy

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 03/02/2017

    » For several years after the start of the Counter Crusades -- the Middle East's invasion of Europe -- it was unhealthy for the European media to say or write anything that was negative to the Holy Book. Its extremist adherents attacked the source and blood flowed. Fleeing the scene, no suicide bombers they, so-called Islamic State proudly boasted of the murders.

    A bit rich

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 06/01/2017

    » I learned the oldest of lessons as a social investigator in the Big Apple. The great wish of the poor is to become rich and the rich want to become richer.

    Tackling IS

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 21/10/2016

    Be wary of your spouse

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 16/05/2016

    » It's said that men marry for sex, women for security. An oversimplification yet consistent with the undeniable fact that each party enters matrimony with expectations. Before exchanging vows, they've probably discussed and agreed on children, one or two jobs, family relations, domicile, time with friends.

    False confessions

    Life, Published on 06/04/2015

    » Thieves have been around since Year One, nothing and nobody able to stop them. Not Hammurabi's Code nor curses in burial places. People are robbed, tomb raiders loot aboveground pyramids and subterranean mausoleums. Men are murdered, women raped, children kidnapped.
