'I enjoyed reading Meeting Laura: A novel loosely and partially inspired by the life of... written by a brilliant new author, Anna "Annina" Lorenzi. I thought this story was excellently written and in my opinion, she writes exceptionally well using an economy of words telling a very descriptive story that springs a plethora of intriguing and thought-provoking concepts and emotions. (...)
I felt this author is exceptionally talented and has crafted an intriguing book the likes of which I haven't read before. It is unique and it was a joy for me to read as I, a casual reader, at times get bored with stories as many readers do. But I found this author's work refreshing, different, and exciting.
She begins the book by dedicating it "to those minds wanting to think, to those hearts wanting to beat, to the brave and the crazy," and she accomplishes all these somewhat contrasting concepts very well.'

Italian literary blogs say this about Meeting Laura:
'The brief, but intense, novel about the mysterious Laura will carry you away on a voyage of the soul and the heart.... It's a dream-like knowing mixture, this work by Anna "Annina" Lorenzi, that is capable of sounding out the human soul.... A BOOK THAT REALLY MAKES AN IMPRESSION. Vote: 5 Stars.' - Roberta Canu, La Stanza dei Libri di Annabel
'A novel that, in my opinion, gushes with talent, and you can feel how the author has always lived in the extraordinary world of books.' - Francesca Ghiribelli, Un'Altalena di Emozioni
'A mega-recommended book for chick lit lovers and I'd dare say for all dreamers. Immerse yourselves in this almost otherworldly story, and, like AJ, set your thoughts free to fly!' - Chiara Cionco, MuatyLand
'Meeting Laura is a book that makes you think, that opens your mind without being pedantic because it "plays" with the little great joys of life that smooth out the road to happiness.' - Concetta Padula, RecensioneLibro

About the Author
Longtime 'scribbler' whether for work or as a passion, Anna "Annina" Lorenzi finally appears on Amazon with her first self-publication and her desire to share her most recent novel both with her faithful international followers and her new readers from... every part of the globe! :-)
Anna born in Milan on a rainy Monday morning, the 26th of October, 1981. She went to - or, better yet, "went to" - two years of classical studies high school, followed by four years of artistic studies high school; without, in any event, being able to resist dedicating herself to her passions. Passions such as writing, music, photography, her beloved dogs, engines, travelling and nature.
Talking about work, she really does "a little bit of everything," so much so that, together with some friends, she founded a company in Texas that deals with classic cars. Participating in writing contests and working with some Italian magazines, she has published various short stories and articles.
Currently, she shares her creative writing accompanied by photographs and images on her personal site, "Diciannove - Prima di nascere ero sull'astronave che aspettavo di scendere" (Nineteen - Before I was born I was on a space ship waiting to come down), now partially available also in English, translated by Starleen K. Meyer.
Starleen K. Meyer has been translating from Italian into English for years: academic works in the broad humanities field, such as on architectural or music history, but also literary works. She has her B.A. in art, her M.A. and Ph.D. in art history, and has also published contributions in scholarly books and journals.

“A sudden air pocket shook him from his deep sleep and from his calm and intense dreaming. He looked around trying to understand at what point in the trip he had been so arrogantly disturbed. On the monitor, the trace of the trip wasn’t visible, anymore, while the images of welcome and the various instructions for how to speed up the controls once landed were running in a loop.
“Still a bit groggy and with a foggy mind, he peeked out through the little window. He had done it, had almost gotten through all the initial phases, the hardest ones; they were perfectly on time and about to land.”
I felt this author is exceptionally talented and has crafted an intriguing book the likes of which I haven’t read before. It is unique and it was a joy for me to read as I, a casual reader, at times get bored with stories as many readers do. But I found this author’s work refreshing, different, and exciting.
She begins the book by dedicating it “to those minds wanting to think, to those hearts wanting to beat, to the brave and the crazy,” and she accomplishes all these somewhat contrasting concepts very well.
Like many, I unfortunately at times take things for granted and life seems dull, but I found after reading her work I gained a new perspective on life and new energy.
I liked her prose. For example,
“I walk a few steps away from you, a little behind you. I try to act as if nothing particular is going on, try not to be noticed, but remain focused. I want to be ready in case of need, if you should need help, if you should need something, anything... There’s no way of knowing, it won’t happen, but just in case, I will be there, I’ll be there for you. And this is my first thought, now.”
All in all, I very much enjoyed the work of this author. I believe anyone who likes to read a unique work will enjoy this book. Excellent and original ending too! Highly recommended!
It was my pleasure to receive a complimentary copy of this book but that does not in any way influence my review of this exceptional book.

I bought the English edition of this novel and I also read the Italian one, bought by my wife: a very particular, original, well written and well edited book; the translator's work is also excellent. I definitely recommend it.
