    Review Of Sweet Ophelia (A Romantic Comedy) By Kenneth Rosenberg

    When I received this book for review it was first entitled Sweet Ophelia and the Tinseltown Blues and not what it is now, which is just Sweet Ophelia and it also had a totally different cover, which was amazing by the way, and not the one we see today. With that being said, the changes don't really matter so much as the story, which I might add, was incredible. Upon first inspection I wasn't really sure what to make of this story but once I started I was amazed at how badly I was hooked to it. This isn't my first rodeo with an indie author so I know they can surprise you most of the time but what I got from this story I was so not ready for. I wasn't ready for how strongly I would feel about Warren and Bridget. I'm sure you thought I was going to say Ophelia didn't you? Ophelia, in my opinion, is just a red herring made to seem more important than the real issue which is, it is never too late to turn your life around and find true happiness and/or bliss. When the story starts Warren is down on his luck and homeless. Never sure if he will be sleeping in a shelter or out on the street. Then shortly thereafter we meet Bridget an actress hoping for the next big break. A girl from a somewhat small town who is being swallowed up by the bright lights of L.A. and just not catching the "big" break she needs to succeed. As the story progresses Warren and Bridget's lives begin to intersect and entwine in an unexpected and amusing way. Warren's luck begins to turn around while Bridget's is at a sort of stand still. Warren goes from being homeless with few friends to a productive member of society trying to re-find his place in the world and having a hard time trying to merge his two different lives he's been leading. While on this new journey Warren and Bridget, at times, get their wires crossed, which in turn, makes them seem to doubt their budding feelings for each other. This story is a sort of comedy of errors which I totally loved. It also had me so rooting for this unlikely couple while hanging on to the edge of my seat. There is so much more I want to say but it would so ruin the end and that is something you really need to uncover for yourself. I was totally invested in the outcome of this story and this couple. I really can't sing the praises of this book enough. It truly was an amazing ride and I am so glad I had a ticket. On a scale from 1-10 I give Sweet Ophelia a 20. Yes, yes I know off the scale and all but Sweet Ophelia is truly one of those stories that everyone really needs to read for themselves and spread the word about. If you believe in true love, redemption, finding oneself, and comedic twists then Sweet Ophelia is the book for you. I really do encourage EVERYONE to pick up a copy and discover how addictive Sweet Ophelia can be.

    Both entertaining and enlightening

    "Sweet Ophellia..." is a light, fun read with a surprising bit of depth and realism thrown in. As odd as it may sound, Mr. Rosenberg has succeeded in creating a sympathetic romantic hero in the form of a down-on-his-luck, homeless man, Warren August, who's circumstances are portrayed with care and understanding while not stooping to trivial clichés. We see life on the street from his despondent point of view yet are allowed to grow with him as events take place that will change his life. Sounds heavy, huh, but it's not! It's enlightening but it's also humorous and entertaining!

    Through a series of off-handed circumstances, Warren finds himself standing on a movie set, playing the part of.... a bum! Bridget, an extra on the set who is trying to catch her big break, is drawn to help Warren as he unknowingly stumbles through his good fortune. What follows is a fun, rags to riches to rags, well, to riches, romance with twists and turns galore. My only problem was in the love aspect of the story. A love so strong that it would precipitate the actions in the story after only one semi-date just couldn't make it over the believability mark for me. But, if one can pretend otherwise, there isn't a better way to spend an afternoon!

    Hollywood Homeless - A Brilliant Setting for a Fun Read

    Sweet Ophelia is a great turn from Kenneth Rosenberg. This book has "current" themes like Hollywood behind-the-scenes and a tough economy. Homeless in Hollywood? Yes, but the redemption is oh so sweet!
