    One thought on “Changeling: A Novella”

    1. I'm afraid this wasn't to my taste. I never do like to read something in which I can't like any of the characters, and that was unfortunately the case here. The story follows Maggie, a girl who has what her parents insist are vivid dreams, but which she knows are actual visits into another world, a city where she was born and where she belongs. Her parents become angry (her father) and upset (her mother) when she speaks about it, or when they see the pictures she draws or journals she keeps, so [...]

    2. From early childhood on Maggie has memories of a city that her parents insist does not exists. But Maggie is convinced that her visits to this city in her sleep are more than dreams. [return][return]In the beginning the story managed to capture my attention with the whole mystery around the strange city, but the further I read the less sure I felt about the story. I was never really able to connect to Maggie in any way, and the more of the mystery was revealed the less interested I got. And in t [...]

    3. What an odd story. I wasn't sure exactly what I was expecting when I first started reading this, but what I found sure wasn't it. The story is deceptively simple, but extremely haunting at the same time. I normally wish short stories are longer, more fleshed out, but this one seemed just right. The pace and episodic nature reflected Maggie's dreams. I liked it.Review copy courtesy of the publisher via LibraryThing's Early Reviewer Program

    4. the plot is great.but: this would have the potential for an epic story, like Tad Williams, for example.There is too much in those rather few pagesd I don't know why the rather elaborate discriptions of the heroine having sex with different people is of any relevance for the story. To mention it, o.k. but compared to other parts of the story it has just too much room for my taste.

    5. This was a very interesting short story. I wish that Moore would go back and flesh it out more into a complete novel or even series. She has started a cool world and I would love to see more of it and learn more about Gayomart and Ariel. Moore has a great start to a fantasy series here and I hope to see more.

    6. After giving this several dedicated tries, I find myself unable to get through more than the first few pages. I'm sure it's a great book for the intended readers, but I'm just not one of them.I received this book for free through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.
