The Turning explores the impact of past on present, how the seemingly random incidents that change and shape us can never be escaped or let go of. All of the stories are bound together by recurring themes; the passing of time, regret, addiction and obsession. Written by Anonymous

this movie is a disgrace
2 March 2018 | by techtySee all my reviews

I haven't even watched this garbage movie but i read the short story big world, what a mistake that was. meg is as "thick as a box of hammers" and when biggie takes Meg under the covers and makes her cry like a bird, causing the protagonist to cry it is honestly the best display of emotion I have ever seen from a Novel truly encapsulating the Human emotion, but it doesn't change the fact that the book is trASH
