BookSlut is the Best!!!

Just being me, I love the book blog ‪#‎Bookslut‬, and have for some time. I also love this review. If you haven't read ‪#‎AboveUsOnlySky‬, read this review, and you'll definitely want to read the novel! http://www.bookslut.com/fiction/2015_05_021207.php
"Young-Stone beautifully balances historical facts of Lithuania and human tragedy of the Holocaust with elements of quirk and magical realism. This might seem unlikely and difficult -- a Holocaust book that includes women with wings and boys with psychic visions and a photographer who doesn't grow old -- but it all works because the magical elements don't seem so impossible under this author's masterful hand. If we live in a world where 11 million people were exterminated, chambers created for the act of mass murder, graves dug by the very men who were to inhabit them, babies dropped out of train cars by their mothers so that they would not have to face the death camps -- can we not also accept that we live in a world where there are women who are born with wings? Does one really sound more impossible than the other? If we can believe the worst, maybe, at least for the course of a novel, we can also believe that some people are birds, just waiting to fly home."

I'm a dork, but I have never read a review that so captures what my novel is about.  Magical realism isn't magical.  It's perception.  How do you choose to see the world?

  2. Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true.
