Okay, but a glitch
15 January 2008 | by annevejbSee all my reviews

Better than I had expected, but still a problem.

I found a lot of this to be dreamy romantic. There was an exception which jarred, though. How Sandra's mum's belief system disorder was shown to be central. The comments by the priest.

If one has been in that sort of situation, then one knows that the portrayal has a truth, while also being misleading to outsiders. The priest is made to show something that, in reality, comes from all sorts of directions in that culture, or its equivalents. Those outside of that culture gradually carry out that priest role, too.

A fairly small point within the context of the story, but in this tit for tat world with its foundations rooted in intolerance this seems to me to be an important point to make.

The solution, for me, was to note that in this story, and such as Sacred Hearts 1995, there are several Catholics involved, most not showing these sorts of symptoms. They are just mangled to the extent that normal people are. Ouch. There are stories where all the players are mangled, but this is not one.

Apart from that, better than expected.
