It isn't often I,
Ladybug Lin, read a book that leaves me
TICKED OFF, but
NATASHA'S DREAM by Heather Greenis has managed to do JUST THAT!
Okay, calm down your Ladybugship...flutter your wings a bit...that's a good bug...now explain. It's NOT because it's terrible, or weak and pure drivel. It's so freaking good I want MORE!
I HATE where it ended...much the way I hate where Margaret Mitchell ended
GONE WITH THE WIND! I mean seriously...we went all the way through the many trials of Scarlet O'Hara's whining and whippersnappering like the spoiled little pain in the...you know where, but when she finally figures out Ashley's a sniveling lapdog and not worth wiping the horse stuff from Rhett's spit and polish, only to get home and have Rhett coldly leave and her sigh and say say she'll fix things
Heather Greenis has given us pretty much the same kind of...we'll solve this tomorrow, kind of ending...and all I got to say is there'd BETTER be a tomorrow!
I have my suspicions about the reasons she left the current players in the unveiling of
NATASHA'S DREAM dangling where they are. Ms. Greenis cunningly does not reveal the whys and wherefores of Keeghan's part in Natasha's story, today, NOR does she explain who or what Alexander, the pseudo "narrator" of NATASHA'S DREAM is in the overall scheme of things...irrittating but also effectively shrewd. She made sure we'll be back,
We get a form of a literary
BRIDGE between what had BETTER be books one and two.
This IS a "keeper-book" and an "I-want-more-book."
Heather Greenis has sculpted from the crafters clay of words and grammer marks a brilliant construct that has me actively
loathing Natasha's father, disdaining her foolhardy mother, and aching for Stewart, Hope, Nanny, Willard, and all those Natasha has easily enchanted, myself included with her simple capacity to be a source of love and caring.
FIVE EMOTION PACKED STARS, Ms. Greenis I give to you, but wish I could give you more. Now, open up your
Word Processor and get back to book two...your fans await you!
