POSITIVE COMMENTS

  • Noah's point of view is strong and brilliant.
  • A real celebration of art.
  • As Jude becomes more true to herself she becomes stronger.
  • Structure (dual voices) was compelling, as was the way you learn backstory.

CONCERNS

  • Rather pat ending on such a good journey.
  • Jude's parts pale in comparison to Noah's because she is a much less compelling character. Not a fault of the writing but could be disengaging to the reader.
