4.0 out of 5 stars Short, But Great

“I was Green, moody and prideful and angry.” Green Angel has the most interesting writing style. I’ve never read anything like it before.

The book kept my interest the whole time. It’s somewhat of a slow read for such a short book. The author writes the most amazing atmosphere, I was able to visualize everything in the novel from the character, to her family, to the garden she spends her life in.

Green has lost her family and literally shuts down. She blames herself because she was angry at them before they left for the city and since she didn’t say goodbye to them, they did not return. This belief isn’t true, but she is overcome with grief and has no other explanation than to blame herself. She begins to change from who she was before the incident occurred. She tattoos her body, cuts of her lovely hair and hides in her home away from people and away from light.

It’s so sad to read about her desperation to join her family. She is truly broken. Though she is so strong, she might not see it or believe it, but her ability to take of herself and not be thwarted by the actions and deceptions of others makes her very strong.

As I read the novel, I felt like it was more like a fantasy novel based in another world than one that starred on Earth. The way the people acted and the stature of the cities and towns just didn’t seem Earthly to me. I really enjoyed it.

This was a great book. A short read great for a relaxing day. It was honest and saddening. You could feel the emotions coming off of the pages. There is no good way to explain this book. It was excellent. I will definitely be reading more of Alice Hoffman’s work.


4.0 out of 5 stars not just for ‘young adults

beautiful art for ‘chapter’ pages. book itself was difficult to hold as it was so small. writing style is a bit different, brief statements with minimal descriptives except the repetitive descriptions of tats and dress especially ‘nails in boots’. HOWEVER the story captures the imagination of how a variety of people cope with extreme loss and thereby the changes in their lives. the ‘disaster’ could easily be related to 9/11, katrina or any disaster. best part is the interrelationship with birds and animals also affected by disaster. green angel has been reprinted with green witch under the name of green heart.

This is one of the shortest books I’ve read in the past few years. I was able to finish it in under two hours.

A young girl (of unknown nationality) goes about her complacent routine until one day a tragedy befalls a nearby city and she loses her entire family. Told by the girl herself, it tells of her hope that her family will return, her denial that they won’t return after time passes, her fears at being alone, her grief at losing those dear to her. We learn how she copes with being alone in a time of turmoil; her acceptance that there are others worse off than she; and of how she learns that life goes on regardless of what happens around us. A compelling, gripping story; packs a lot of punch into a few pages.
