Alice Hoffman is amazing. My seventeen year old daughter and I have read all her books. The Third Angel links lives of people through a hotel in London. Her words are so important that my daughter writes down some of the books thoughts on love and life. She gave us yet another gift to share- we both treasured this book. Although my favorite will always be Turtle Moon. My daughter's is Green Angel.

Once again, I have read an Alice Hoffman book with great admiration for her writing and her style, but find the story much too depressing. I love to read and continually have a store of books waiting in the wings and particularly enjoy great writers. However, I look to books as an escape from reality, not a chance to wallow in the miseries of others. This series of short but related stories is one disaster after another.

    Don't Get It and Don't Care

    I'm not disappointed as I haven't read anything by this author and so had no expectations.I read it for my book club. Definitely a dud.I thought there was little theme to the book - the interwoven stories way too far fetched. I don't get the point- if there was one to get - and I disagree about the characters being well drawn - sorry - I thought they were shallow and poorly drawn. I would not recommend this book - and DEFINITELY not on audio - way too confusing.

    A Disappointed Fan

    I have read all of Alice Hoffman's books and she is consistantly one of my favorite authors but I have to disagree with the reviews this time. Where is the wonderfully descriptive prose that is the trademark of Alice Hoffman? This is filled with short choppy sentences. The stories take place in London, although it might as well be New York City for all the detail she gives about the location. The characters are well rounded and the fact that the three stories are connected gives it some interest, although on their own they are improbable and unremarkable. At the end of the third story, the gift of a puppy seems to imply that everything is resolved happily ever after. It's the sappiest ending I've ever read.
