It’s easy to get lost in Jalal’s story and the twists and turns his life takes. Lewis does a good job of letting us feel his emotions, whether they are love, loss, anger or fear. By the end you will have questions. Is it possible to find your one true love? If you find it once, can you find it again? What if love finds you?
I give The Brevity of Roses a rating of Hel-of-a-Love-Story.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~FTC Disclaimer: I had expected to review this book back in August 2010, but then my computer went face down in the dirt and died. I wonder if the FTC could do something about that. Then when my tech guy got me a new computer three months later, I forgot to do the review. Perhaps the FTC could do something about my memory. One thing I did not forget is that The Brevity of Roses only cost me $2.99. Woo-woo! The Brevity of Roses is worth all two hundred and ninety-nine pennies. As part of this disclaimer, I should tell you that part of the delay was stuffing all those pennies into the pay slot on the side of this new fangled laptop. I should have used the slide out money drawer on the other side, but I only have rectangular bills, not big round ones.
