truly exceptional read!
Be prepared to be seduced into some seriously late nights
of reading! well written, cleverly and uniquely structured
and beautifully illustrated. a story of discovery and of love.
art and love, what a mix
The true story of unexpected love, the magic
of music and the challenge of art. A philosophy of living.
By the end I felt I had read something very beautiful.
I thought I would enjoy this book after reading
the preview chapter but I was unprepared for the compulsion
I experienced in needing to 'find out what happens', which
is why I kept turning the pages, reading it from start to
finish (although it is, at 470 pages, a very long book) in
one day. It is beautifully written and illustrated. It is
also a lesson to us all in the frailities of the human condition
and how we see things in such different ways. I found it passionate,
informative as an introduction to Wagner particularly and
is where the story starts, touched with an alternating sense
of pathos and comic relief. It is truly a 'page-turner'.
Great stories and interesting story of the womans life in
love. Very happy to have gotten this book. I like getting
lost in what she has to write.
