"Love is ancient and mysterious and you can't mess with it. If you do it just backfires and you meet with disaster. That's a fact." This pretty much describes this book. Although the story was interesting, I did not like the arrangement of the book. I think it would make more sense to start from the back and read to the front. It just seemed like it was told from the end to the beginning instead of from the begining to end. Very confusing.
Rife with coincidence, great imagery, and strong emotion. As another reviewer wrote, the structure of The Third Angel is similar to Blackbird House; however, The Third Angel answers more of its questions than does Blackbird House. Both novels are bittersweet, full of depth and well written. Alice Hoffman has won me over with her novels that ring true and feel surreal at once.
Three stories that share the same place, and the same person or two, but in different decades. A story about life, love, and loss. Good book from Alice Hoffman and a little reminiscent of another one of her books ~ "Blackbird House".
