My drawing of "Blue-Haired Lawyer" from The Simpsons

I got bored and drew this with Inkscape; it's my favourite character from the satirical animated comedy sitcom The Simpsons.

The Policewoman Book Review

See 'The Policewoman' on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32894934-the-policewoman?ac=1&from_search=true

This dystopian crime thriller set seven years in the future invites readers along with Sarah, a striking yet street-smart cop fighting corruption and illegal drugs. I love crime novels but I'm not a big fan of futuristic novels so at first I wasn't sure what I would think of The Policewoman. However it was certainly worth reading and I'm grateful to have gotten the opportunity. Sarah is an excellent protagonist, a tough woman who still values family and friendship and who is very cool under fire even in dire times. In her world, drugs are such a major albeit illegal industry that her own life is threatened if she interferes. The author's writing evokes intensity, suspense, adventure and excitement, everything a story like this should have, and it's a deeply imaginative and creative work full of unexpected twists and surprises. Still, my favourite part is the author's powerful use of imagery to set the scene and the elaborate plot he has created. This book is excellent and one that I would recommend to any reader looking for something with depth and originality, especially if you like a main character who isn't afraid to take risks to protect the people closest to her
