The Crying Dance by John R. Spivey
The Crying Dance by John R. Spivey
4.0 out of 5 stars Intertwined, July 12 2014
:: Favourite Quote ::
Sorrow was not a bad thing. It was a measure of respect for the good aspects of life, respect for things that brought joy in their time before passing on. (P.223)

:: The Review ::
I received a copy of The Crying Dance via a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

In an understated spirit, similar to authors such as Coelho, Spivey explores delicate themes such as karma, redemption, and the collective in a unique way. The novel works it's way through context, text and subtext to present the reader with a vivid interpretation of the the collective soul.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful, May 26 2014
The most notable thing about this edition of Little Red Riding Hood is the illustration value. Each page is a work of art in itself. If it weren't a self-assessed crime to tear pages out from a book, I would easily use each page as artwork for my home.

The story is told in a more authentic voice than typical fairy tales. This coupled with the hauntingly beautiful illustrations has triggered a renewed interest in fables and fairy tales. I especially love the non-commercial approach overall.

Sleek product design makes it easily portable. Powerful sound with wide reach.

I would buy another if they still made them.
