Reviews - What do customers think about Song of the Gypsy?
Truly a gem Oct 28, 2004
Song of the Gypsy is truly one of those little gems that we stumble upon every now and then that surprises and delights us- as does the author. Niki Sepsas is an excellent writer with a strong command of the language. I look forward to reading more of his work.
The Beauty of Love and Nature Captured Mar 8, 2004
In Song of the Gypsy, one is utterly transported to Greece and through Niki Sepsas' excellent writing, one can feel the warmth of the people, the smells, beauty, and tastes of this very special place. The novel, with its vivid images, is a sensual love affair with the country as well as the two sensitive people who meet and know they are meant to be together in spite of obstacles that arise. It is a difficult book to put down. We care about these people and are rooting for the situation to work out. At the same time, one hates to see the book end as we want to continue on in their journey through life. I loved the book and hope a sequel follows. We should all be so fortunate to find a love as knowing, fearless, and pure.
Unique and descriptive style Aug 12, 2003
The best compliment I can give for this book is that I have traveled to the area the author references, and reading Song of the Gypsy has made me yearn to return. The book is clearly well researched, and the historical facts are placed in excellent context and with proper relevance to the story. Sepsas' description of an ancient home being "..held together by gravity and the stones familiarity with each other" is an example of his unique style. One gets a vivid mental picture of the interactions, the scenery, and the people of Greece. It was a fun read and I didn't put it down until finished. That is my only criticizm...too short at 175 pages.
A Visual Paradise and Moving Love Story Jul 30, 2003
Reading this book was like taking a trip to Greece without the expense or hassle of leaving home. The author has an exceptional talent for visual imagery and obviously knows the history of the region. This, plus strong characterization and an unpredictable plot makes it a terrific read. It's a haunting love story and enticing travel brochure in one. I highly recommend it.
