It was upon the poetic pages of his renowned Divine Comedy that Dante Alighieri ascended. He famously commenced his journey in Inferno, and later reached Paradiso. The speaker in Devolution, however, is on a slightly different journey. Rather than drawing nearer to Paradiso, she can only journey further away from bliss. It is by God’s design that our tragic heroine continues to slip and fall, and it is by His will that she descends. Will she find redemption before the pages run inkless, or will she be doomed to the depraved depths of Inferno forevermore? Only Time will tell.
If you follow me on either Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed I’m a brand ambassador for a handful of companies. Of course, this includes Abella Eyewear.
For context, you should know that in the past year and a half of my life (December 2017-March 2019), I’ve received dozens of offers to become a brand ambassador. I was new to the game when these started coming in; for the first six months, I accepted as many positions with as many companies as I could.
It wasn’t long before I fell head first into the dark side of brand ambassadorship or, as some like to call it, Instagram modeling. Not every company I worked with was legitimate, and some were even running scams!
I don’t usually do book reviews; this is actually the first one I’ve ever posted on this blog.
But then, I read a book so magnificent that I just knew I had to change my custom. I mean, I usually have trouble committing to a book, but in the case of Nefelibata, I was just about ready to propose to my Kindle.
I gave up actual airplane sleep just to read it, you guys.
