Amazing! A dark story of beauty and hope, told from the most dismal and corrupt of places, with people who've suffered the ugliest and cruelest of backgrounds.
Two people, similar backgrounds, different futures. What decides our futures?
This is a beautifully told story. There's pain throughout, yet it's a story of hope, too. And peace. There's peace in this story.
Death Row....not a place that would inspire such a lovely story, yet here it is.
Haunting, intense, & dark. The writing is strong and I thought the ending was very well done.
Denfeld’s writing is lyrically exquisite, full of poetic imagery, and jarringly juxtaposed to the horrors of life on prison’s death row. I stand in awe of this writer’s gift to create a compassionate and triumphant story as it explores the darkness of mental illness and the soul-crushing environment of the enchanted prison. Not for the faint of heart, yet full of heart feints.
Excellently written. I no longer think about prisoners as deserving of being treated inhumanly and disrespectfully. That surprised me.It changed me.
This is one of those books that I found I couldn't put down until I finished it. Very well written and had a lyrical quality to it. Definitely a fresher perspective than most novels.
Haunting, lyrical, and original. What a beautifully written, emotionally stunning story. Easily one of my favorite books, though the subject matter isn't for the faint of heart. Above all, a story of loneliness, isolation, and empathy.
One of my favorite books. Magical, perfect, sad, hopeful, humane. I've read it twice already.
This book helped me to read about things and to think about situations that I usually have a hard time taking in. In the book I am able to feel empathy for people who are seen as monsters and who have done terrible things and have had terrible things done to them. It is written in a way that enables these people to be seen as somehow human, and although tragic, there seems to be hope as well
Magical reality set in a state penitentiary, told by a man on death row. Disturbing and wonderful all at the same time.
"The Enchanted" is beautiful and poetic in its simplicity. It is not always an easy read (given the subject matter) but well worth it.
