Falling in Love with Sophia Paperback – April 21, 2010
Top Customer Reviews
As I was reading this book, I was a little confused as to where it was going and its relation to the title, so I had to keep reading to the end to find out. This book has wonderful elements to it, and I got emotional quite a few times while reading it, but I think that if this were to be made into a movie, then the title should be different, and the main focus should be on the relationship between the father and the son. I say this only because it started off somewhere, but I think it ended up somewhere else. While I believe that the author really intended to write about love and destiny (and it certainly is one aspect to the story), I really think that he is writing more about family values, disillusionment, life lessons, perseverance and wonderful parallel stories about fathers and sons.
I think there is a really compelling story with the expectation that Greek couples never divorce and they would "rather be miserable for fifty years than divorce". I also believe that there is much to be explored and identified with a Greek father who is always working to achieve the immigrant/American dream of making it and sometimes leaving what is really important (wife and children) behind.Read more ›
The author of this book is the writer, producer and actor of the award winning movie, "Do You Wanna Dance?" and he is also the father of triplet boys. As he describes in the introduction of the book, when his children were young he would put them to sleep and because they were afraid of the dark, he would sit in the door frame until they fell asleep. One day, he took out a paper and pen and began writing as they fell asleep. He began writing about marriage, about love, about family, about faith... this was the beginning of "Falling in Love with Sophia".
This story would make a beautiful movie.
