    I can’t remember what books I read under the age of seven, though given that I was in reading recovery, I would wage that it was not a lot. I blame it on the fact that the books where so extraordinarily mundane. The first book that I actually wanted to read was The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, followed by the rest of the series. After which it was Raymond E Feist’s Magician, and following series. I haven’t really put down the Fantasy and Science Fiction since.
    At the time they cut me free. I was brimming with defiance. Doctors looking down on me. Breaking every law of science.
    How'd I ever end up here? A latent strain of color blindness. Then it seemed to dawn on me. Haemoglobin is the key

    might be typical but it's the best one I remember
    and these on occasion (from the points of view of a single character)
