    Innovative stories

    These books are an innovative way of telling stories, even 15 or so years later after they were first published (when I first read them in high school). I still enjoy them.

    Fabulous reading

    This is such a great reading! The combination of the art presented in the books plus the intrigue that is written in every letter makes this collection absolutely fabulous! I had a great time reading the books and it only took me one afternoon cause I couldn't put the aside.

    Amazing

    I am in seventh grade and when my ninth grade Creative Writing teacher said she was going to base our next project off of these books, everyone was less then thrilled. We spent a week listening to my teacher read a bunch of us seventh, eighth, and ninth graders these books and when she was eventually finished, we were speachless. It was an amazing story of reality and fantasy. It was so strange and unusual, a story of love, suspense, mystery, everything. It was a very interesting book in the way in which it was written and when my teacher was done, ninety percent of the kids ran to Barnes and Noble and spent fifty dollars on the boxed set, even though they had already read the story. If you are one of the lucky people who has discovered this story, do not just forget about it. Red the books. I promise you will not be disappointed.

    Wonderful blend of reality and fantasy!

    These books are fabulous reading. I could not wait to read the next book. They are beautifully compiled. The notes and postcards are just exquisite. Bantok is a genius.

    Mystery meets Romance Meets Sci-Fi?

    This trilogy is perfect for a cold night, candlelight and a hot cup of favored coffee. If you enjoy the thrill of "peeking" into someone else's world via their personal correspondence- you will love these books. You will question yourself- "Is it real or not"?

    Now my fave of all time

    My friends and I fondly call ourselves bookpushers because we read books like crazy. My friend Nicki and I loved these books, they were so beautifully written and the artwork was outstanding. We had to go back later and really look at the postcards and letters. It transported you into a different world and you so wanted to believe that these people were real. You wanted to believe there is such a real connection like this out there. Also its simply mindbending. And I can honestly say that these are some of the best books I have ever read and I have read a lot of books. You can't put these books down.

    'We're All Mad Here....'

    It is almost unthinkable to read the first book in this trilogy without having the other two books sitting right next to you. The plotline moves well and the characters are engaging as well as very human in their attitudes and memories. However, the question is: Who truly exists? Griffin? Sabine? Both of them? The possibility of a love that spans dimensions is just as plausible as a man (or woman) with multiple personalities. As for the artwork, it is beautifully rendered, albeit sometimes macabre and almost prophetic. This author/illustrator's talent spans many mediums, textures, and ideas. Added to all this is the tantalizing prospect of reading someone else's mail... there's a sort of naughty awe at taking the letters out of the envelope and reading Sabine's childhood memories... Griffin's worst fears... the couple's problems and intimate confusions. These books don't take long to read, but just try to get them out of your head! Bravo, Nick Bantock... I hope to read every other word you ever put to paper!... and see every work of art you create!

    Required reading

    When I first read Griffin and Sabine four years ago, I did not quite grasp all the emotion and beauty of Bantock's prose. I still adored this trilogy, however it was not until I grew as a reader that I realized how many other cultural aspects are involved in this story. A lover of art, poetry, and, of coarse, literature, I have fallen in love with this lush and intense tale of devotion. It is a must read for all poets, dreamers, and romantics...

    I absolutely loved it

    A dear friend of mine recommended these books to me and read the first book to me in full before I got my hands on the books myself. As soon as I got them, i read them from cover to cover! I love them! Such a beautiful romance that just tugs at the heart! Highly recommended~

    Intuition, Magic and Love

    Griffin and Sabine was given to me from a man I had spent countless hours talking to online. I knew before I had ever met him in person that I loved him. When he sent this book to me, he enclosed a note saying that he could see so much of us in it. After reading it, I realized, he was right. If any one has ever met someone via the internet to whom you felt a magical connection, this book is for you. For the record, I eventually met this man and the feelings we had once shared miles apart only intensified together, much like that of Griffin and Sabine. He is still my love and I will cherish him forever and this wonderful book forever. This book is for anyone with a romantic side, it is beautiful. Thank you Michael for sharing this and your life with me, I love you.

    Must read for every person out there.

    The Griffin & Sabine trilogy are three incredibly addictive books. I have enjoyed every Nick Bantock I've read, but these are the best. Being able to handle other people's 'mail' draws the reader in to a wonderous tale of mystery and love, and you won't be able to put the books down until you've finished the last one.

    Moving and enchanting

    Not knowing anything about this series before cracking open the first book, I had no idea what to expect. What I found was a rollercoaster of emotion, love, and mystery, wound brilliantly in a unique and spellbinding fashion. The format of the books is unlike any other, and as one reads letter after letter, it's impossible to put them down. A must read for any hopeless romantic.
