SAVE ME THE WALTZ, THE ONLY NOVEL BY ZELDA FITZGERALD, IS CURRENTLY A DOLLAR NINETY NINE ON AMAZON GO GO GO
‘you can’t know how to get to where you want to go unless you know where you are now, and you can’t know where you are now unless you can see clearly where is it that you’ve been’
I really liked an article from one of my literature and ecology assignments by this author, the next day my professor lent me the book it was from! So excited and thankful!!
Oh my gosh I picked this book up a few hours ago and didn’t put it down until I finished.
I didn’t want to like it at first, because a dystopian society based on depression didn’t settle right with me. It still doesn’t, really. Forcing people to take medication and erasing their memories is really against my moral code; although, it separates this novel from others of its genre.
Sloan and James are really good together — and this novel definitely promotes the ‘if it’s meant to be it’ll happen’ ideal.
I felt bad for Michael and I’m anxious to find out about Ally from the epilogue.
I’m definitely going to read the sequel, and I definitely recommend this! It is different, though; be aware, the theme is not for the light of heart. I cried at many parts.
I’ve had this book for a longgg time, but I never got around to reading it till now.
This was a cute read that sparked a lot of travel envy! I want to travel the world. One day…
The only part of this novel I couldn’t grasp was the realness of it. Her parents let her go to Europe alone??? Really??? After her aunt disappeared??? Oh well. It’s fiction.
I’ve read a few other books by this author, and I can’t say that I loved them, but I did enjoy them for the most part. This one was a good one, and I recommend Devilish, too — although I read that awhile ago and should probably reread it!
'The girls are like that when they dance.
Some are wide-open, large flowers, and some are tiny little flowers.’
I like this more than I thought I would, considering I’m on the opposite side of the political scale.
There were a few unrealistic things, but then again, it is fiction.
I think it should have been more than 20 years — maybe 50. 20 really isn’t all that long…
Also, I think the author should have either stuck with the developments in technology, or focused on going back into nature. Having both seemed like a paradox.
