Can you hear me now?




Author G.E. Johnson has released her sequel to Love and Wrath: The Beginning! Love and Wrath II: Confessions is written in a style that I love. Every chapter is a revival of the original story from the viewpoint of each main character. This style gives you a deeper insight to what is motivating the character. I must admit that I was a bit disturbed by the actions taken by the trio at the end of Love and Wrath: The Beginning, but now I can see how past experiences shaped the outcome that took place.


As a bonus the author provides an audio download (link download provided in the eBook) that brings the characters to life. Crafted with the artistic reading is background music that gives an added dimension to each character. It's reminiscent of one of my favorite public radio shows This American Life. After reading Confessions, I listened to the audio version and was entertained by the improvisation and eerie life each voice gave to the characters. I certainly have a different mental image of the book cast now that there's a voice to go with a name.



I applaud her excellent collaboration of voice, music and unique writing style. I'm eager to see what G.E. comes up with next.

  2. I came here following a tweet :) of @moondustwriter :). Wouldn't you like a better looking blog on your own domain? Nothing to urge, it's just that the impact with your readers will be considerably greater.
