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.

Format: Paperback
This is a glimspe of two co-existing realms where only one knows of the others existence. There are wisdoms here of earth, the sea, Jack Daniels and of evolution itself. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be a turtle then this is your book. "...just like his own house, it's empty airiness a ballroom for the sea winds to tango in...." With a thorough command of language this is a liquid green ride that will stay close to the waterlogged heart long after you put it down and will get your little turtle heart beating in the most humorous of ways. I didn't want this one to end. When you do put it down it will probably only be long enough to come up for air. Beware of sprouting fins.

Green Music is an excellent debut novel that takes the reader deep into space between the real and the imagined. Pflug, an accomplished short story writer, tells the story of those who can change places with giant turtles, how they lose the ability, and how one woman may be able to help them find it again. That woman is Marina, a woman living in Toronto, struggling to survive, and confused and haunted by the dreams and visions she's having. Recommended for those who like to dream, and for fans of urban fantasy (Charles De Lint) and good modern fiction.

I love this book! I completely fell in love with Marina. I identified with her struggle in the Toronto world so much. It was heartbreaking to me when the book ended. I wanted to go with her! Ursula's play between worlds is magical and completely plausible. You can feel the water on your fins and the sun on your belly. I look forward to reading more from this author! Thank you!
