Reviews of The Song of Ballad and Crescendo by Noah Mullette-Gillman

Candy Beauchamp reviewed on Oct. 10, 2010

I read this towards the end of the 24-hour read-a-thon I did and all I could think was "Dude, pass me those funny brownies". This is a little tiny bit out there for me, it's written very... and I'm looking for the right word here... airy, perhaps? It is VERY short and comes with a sample of his novel as well. I read that as well, it looks interesting, I plan to look at his book again before deciding if I want to read it or not.

BUT this particular short story is a sweet little love story, it almost feel like a mythological story. The photography is absolutely stunning. I had to load it into my PC so I could fully appreciate the photos. Just gorgeous.

Well worth a quick read (like 30 minutes, tops) for someone that likes mythology or just something a little different. Funny brownies not included.

Another great read from an amazing author. This heart warming fable takes place in a time when the world is covered in stones for the sky. It is a story of love, and taking a chance. As humans we are all afraid to take chances not knowing the outcome of things. Something bad might happen, or maybe it will enlighten our lives and the lives of others forever.

This book takes a look at things we take for granted and shows us what we are missing even if it is right in front of us. The book has beautiful photos that play in harmony with the poetic words that share the page. This is the reason to own a Kindle to find stories like this that will enrich our lives.

An amazing author this book is just as magic as his first book (The White Hairs)
