Product description

Review


"This book will appeal to anyone curious about how and why literature (and art in general) can have a significant therapeutic impact." --Library Journal


"The story is, then, a creative piece that serves as the subject for the study of character and plot development as well as an illustration of emotion in a narrative. It is impossible to read the story without feeling the anxiety, fear, disappointment, and relief of the protagonist's experience... A second accomplishment of the book is that it enables the reader to experience emotion in response to specific stimuli, not simply read about it. The reader gains a clear identification with the protagonist and experiences the anxiety, anticipation, and uncertainty that are in the story." -- David S. Hargrove, PsycCRITIQUES
