Wow, this was one of the most powerful books I've read in a long time. I'm usually more into thrillers and horrors with monsters under the bed. GONE by Julie Elizabeth Powell gave me a different kind of emotional rush. It made me look at my life and the people I've met. I realized I've learned from the ones who stayed as well as the ones who left.
Avalon has a touch of Oz and a bit of Wonderland. But instead of a young girl learning lessons through an adventure, it's a woman who has already lived a full and complicated journey. There is a reason people come into your life, just like there is a reason why you are here on this earth. Julie Powell's world of Avalon is a masterpiece filled with lessons, faith, struggles, victories and hope.
I cannot recommend this book enough. It's a deep look into our world, into the dream world, into the afterworld. I absolutely loved it. A must read, whether you have children (I don't) or not, you will learn something from this author who may have really experienced the amazing world of Avalon. I for one am definitely a believer. Are you?
"Gone" is the story of one woman's struggle to understand and learn what it is to forgive herself. She's bound and determined to be angry at herself and the world in general for something that's completely beyond anyone's control. This is understandable because it's easier to be angry than it is to forgive, even if it's a person's inner struggle. Charley struggles with blaming herself and having feelings that are perfectly natural. She's racked by guilt and doesn't want to be honest with herself or anyone else because she'd rather stuff her feelings inside and refuse to acknowledge them.
Then, she's catapulted to Avalon and has to confront herself and her past in order to face the future. This is where it gets a little crazy because she goes on a quest she doesn't understand and has no idea that ultimately, she's learning a lesson. To tell any more of this would require spoilers and that, my friends I won't do. Read "Gone" yourself to find out more.
This is the point where I get to give a star rating and even though I don't believe in star ratings, I'm happy to say that this is one of the few books I get to give a five star. Julie Elizabeth Powell has written with stunning aplomb and related Charley, the main character to anyone else in the world to a stunning degree.Read more ›
Point of View: You are reading from the point of view of Charley as she dies and moves on.
Voice: The author has released quite a bit of emotion writing this one and you can tell.
Character Development: Intriguing to say the least and emotionally binding to say the most. You will have a deep personal relationship with the characters of this one.
Plot: One can only hope and pray that this is the way it does go after-life.
Dialogue: The dialogue was very fluid and moving.
Pacing: Started slow but quickly shifts gears.
Setting: I want to visit this land. The great thing about writing about the after-life is that your imagination is the designer.
Continuity: Not one single place out of order. If you are looking for an issue here your heart is missing.
