Light Warriors by Joyce Tenneson
Light Warriors

LitLover21, April 28, 2009

As I turned each page I found myself being drawn in a little bit more with each picture I studied. The emotional appeal of each one offers its own personal diary in a way (visually). Although all of the pictures were intriguing, the one I was captivated most by was of Nina from Russia. The lighting concept is reproduced in a warm brown, with hints of black to compliment the wrap on her body. She seems very relaxed, yet sophisticated as she holds her leg to the side of her body. It brought me into her world...I was absolutely fascinated by the emotional expression on her face. It revealed so much yet still retained this strong sense of mystery on who this woman is, and what her life might be like. Overall each picture holds a brilliant and emotional complexity that Tenneson captures incredibly will.

Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp by C. D. Payne
Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp

LitLover21, April 27, 2009

When I began reading this I was soon reminded of another book I had read by Rob Thomas, titled "Rats Saw God". The stories have similarities in the sense that they kind of capture the not-so-innocent side of youth. Within the first few pages most would probably perceive Nick Twisp to be somewhat pretentious and precocious, but in reality, Nick Twisp is a undeniably lovable protagonist. And the use of ridiculously large words along with his lewd behavior, and erotic thoughts towards that girl he pines for make for a very entertaining literary adventure.
