it was amazing
Read from February 01 to 02, 2012

I've just turned the last page, and I am buzzing with the particular ache that you get when you finish a great book and you suddenly wish the whole world had read it so they'd understand. The Novel in the Viola is, in short, spectacular. The language, the intricate characters that grow and grow and grow, and the story itself that says what it has to say and says it simply and elegantly - it is a masterpiece. At its core, The Novel in the Viola is just a story about a girl that loves and loses and loves and loses, and it is a story that drags you in. A true gem.

“It is the storyteller's prerogative to try to write, every now and then, the ending she might wish for. Even if it exists only on the white page.”
Natasha Solomons, The Novel in the Viola

Natasha Solomons
“I lay in his arms and I understood. I am two women and I love two men. Elise will always love Kit and Alice loves Daniel. This was not the life or the love I had expected but it was love all the same.”
