*ORIGINAL POSTING*I just finished reading VOYAGE IN THE DARK. I can't remember the last time I read a book quite like this one. I've read some pretty good books in my day, but this one was different. It was beautiful. I felt like I was on a beautiful boat, sailing down the Amazon, and as we sailed, we were surrounded by beautiful jungles and jungle-like things that looked like they were growing out of the water.
"This is a captivating, memorable and poignant novel. It is a novel of great depth and mystery. I am sure that you won't be able to put this book down." - Melanie,
"Beautiful, innovative, and insightful. A startling look at the evolution of the human consciousness.""A stunningly original and beautifully written book. I found it hard to put down."
I needed to write a literature review about Voyage In The Dark and The Devils Grin books. I read Voyage In The Dark with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Jean Rhys is a wonderful writer.
