Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Lost Innocence?
Engrossing and well-written Mar 24, 2005
While I'm generally not interested in symbolism or literary devices, I greatly enjoy a good fantasy novel, and the story presented in The Book of Lost Innocence was an enjoyable read. I finished the book in one sitting and found myself relating to the moral symbolism presented by the story simply due to the author's integration of ideals. I was captivated by the characters and their interactions. Regardless of a reader's personal or religious interests, the story is engrossing and very well written.
An excellent fusion of themes Mar 21, 2005
The Book of Lost Innocence is a skilled blend of religious allegory with a backdrop of a fantasy drama. Short and to the point, the tale quickly launches into symbolic themes of mortal fallibility, redemption, and the impossibility of perfection amidst a modern story of angels walking among mortals, struggling to find their own places in an imperfect heaven and earth. The ending is sudden and shocking, revealing that even the greatest of creatures can possess crippling flaws while the worst of creatures may still possess redeeming virtues, ultimately leaving the reader pondering his or her own moral compass in our own imperfect world.
