This book is simply amazing and it should be read by everybody. I can't put it any plainer than that! We start of with Clara, an old lady in her garden, feeling all the aches and pains of being over 80-years-old. Then she starts to tell a story, which will quickly enfold you and have you completely entranced, hanging onto every word. She has a tale to tell and she won't finish until she has. This book raises some important issues, gives you questions, also gives you answers that I personally would love to be true, and makes you ponder. All of this is a good thing as far as I am concerned. I loved how she wasn't comfortable with her 'old-fashioned' values, inside the body of a younger woman. I thought Zachary was a jerk, and refused to admit that I was the same generation as him! I adored Lenny and his eyebrows. I will not give out anymore to do with the story, except to say that this book blindsided me. I honestly thought I'd just be getting a 'normal, run-of-the-mill' science fiction. What I got was a biographical account, a fascinating story that tore at my heartstrings and emotions. I loved every moment reading this and certainly didn't want it to end, especially not once it became clear what would happen at the end. A fascinating concept, executed with perfection, and definitely one to keep. Absolutely recommended. (ps, don't forget the kleenex) Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Transformation, a metamorphosis that reaches beyond the natural order of things, excites the imagination and puts into focus the wonder and beauty of that natural order - the deep pool of existence that exceeds our vision. Dreams carry us to new places and new possibilities which expand our thinking and challenge our expectations. Never Again, by Heather Starsong, gives voice to these fundamental mysteries of human life with all its faults, anxieties, and exultations.
