By Turtle Fan on Jan. 19 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic and completely original first novel by speculative writer Ursula Pflug. Based partially in Toronto and partially in the alternate world of Marina, the story explores the concept that everyone has a twin. Marina, described as a medieval village by the sea is inhabited by shape shifters who switch between turtle and human, but the turtles have gone away and now only the human counterparts remain in the seaside village. When the Toronto-based characters become aware of the alternate universe they look for ways to bring the worlds and each other closer together.
Taking bits and pieces of this surreal fantasy out of context doesn't do the story justice. It's an expertly crafted and intricately woven tale that takes you on a thoroughly entertaining journey. . The world that Pflug creates is breathtakingly beautiful. I hope we get another glimpse of Marina soon.

I am a big fan of Ursula Pflug's writing and especially loved this book. Her characters always have a lot of depth, and it is very interesting and thought provoking to go with them on their journeys. The Author's imagination always transports us to fantastic worlds layered with incredible beauty. Her stories, peppered with humor, are also very touching and inspirational. The never ending human quest of trying to bring different, opposing, inner and outer worlds together in harmony is a recurring theme in Ursula Pflug's writing. The conflicting worlds of the psyche, of relationships, of life, death and reality are written about with great intuition and imagination. Ursula Pflug creates stories that resonate on many levels and are all well worth reading. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It's so rare to see the experiences of women explored in this way. Set in a timeless present, Green Music is an oddly Canadian story about women finding themselves, and in some cases, getting lost. The story features an alternate reality called Marina which is in something like an alternate past or parallel world that is in a village on a beach. Over the course of the novel, some people migrate between Marina which is a creative turtle world and the very concrete and troubling real world of Toronto, Canada. The turtles, seem to be emblems of aspects of our inner lives, of the dream worlds many of us have, and of forms of escape. The story is uniquely feminist in that it features the deeper psychic aspects of troubled and creative women.
