My vision of this classic biblical theme is slightly different … well, I do not think the “seven deadly sins”of sin. This is all the characteristics of the people part of the human life Experience, behavior. We all face these phenomena – so what now, we are damned? Oh nafig. For me, everything is in order: you can”sin”the whole day, to try all these temptations and still sleep a good person. In the book I tell the story of his life – something humorous, something serious, even grim. It turned out, I think, quite good – given that I only wrote the book, without any co-authors there and other”musical”. So if you decide that the result of – shit, blame it on me alone ».
