Beautifully Lyrical

Green Witch by Alice Hoffman

Summary: From bestselling author Alice Hoffman, a resonant tale of overcoming grief and tragedy, as only she could tell it.

In this powerful, lovely sequel to GREEN ANGEL, Green must learn the stories of a number of "witches" and free her true soul mate from a prison as she grapples with life, love, and loss in a post-disaster world.

Review: An incredible read that amazes with the beautiful words.

This book is quite short (133 pages and has large font) and does not have much in the way of standard plot, but it still is an incredible read. I have not read the first book (I had meant to pick the first book up at the library, but this was all I could find), but this book does a very good job of catching you up. I would have liked to learn more about the world (the first book might have more information), especially about the Horde. This book is very light on dystopian and I felt that Green was lucky, too lucky perhaps, with how easily she escaped any ills of the Horde. 

Despite being light on story, this book shines in its words. This is a book of feelings and ripe with symbolism. The beauty of the words is what really stands out. Sometimes I felt like I was reading a poem. This book really resonated on a deep level with me. It is an emotional read. Love plays a huge part in the story and I was glad that Green was able to find happiness. 


Recommendation: I would recommend this book to fans of young adult fantasy or dystopian fiction or those that enjoy lyrical fiction.
