Loch Raven Review on Jadeite: Ingenuity of Plot; Artistry in Surprising the Reader; Awe-inspiring


Loch Raven Review has published Editor Dan Cuddy’s stellar review of The Color of Jadeite. Cuddy’s review lauds the awe-inspiring scenery, ingenuity of plot, and artistry in surprising readers.

I don’t want to reveal too many of the details of the plot as it constantly twists and turns and doubles back on the readers as they follow it. So many surprises and discoveries! The novel is pure escapist fiction, which is needed in these days of real-world turmoil. The author toured China, took copious notes, did much research and fashioned in his words the sights, smells, textures of China.

It would be great to reveal the twists of the plot in the story, and praise the artistry in surprising the reader, but the less said the better on this. The individual reader should have their own experience.

Read the entire review in the most recent issue of Loch Raven Review.
