    "I read the novel!" (This critique is based on the full book and not just the preview) Here is another brilliant work by Sandra Lusk. It will be a gross understatement to say that I ‘enjoyed’ this work. I was thoroughly regaled by this romance writer and this book has elevated me to a level of aesthetic and artistic enjoyment and appreciation, where I wish to prevail for a few more days. Sandra’s Romanticism is of a special stature and status. It is palpable that her romanticism is more concerned with the traditional Romantic facets of transcendental idealism and also a proclivity to view the ‘real’ world from a world of romantic beauty and perfection which is untainted by the vulgarities of the practical concerns of routine mundane existence here on earth. She does paint realistic pictures, but she also seems to abhor the naked vulgarity of her own pictures. It is not really difficult to notice this, let me say, paradoxical treatment of reality. To note this, you don’t... More > need to be exceptionally perspicacious. Any casual but sensitive reader will notice it. I must also say that Sandra has taken the feminist enquiry in Romantic preoccupations to a new area of observation and study. Her Matrix is an extremely loveable character, a character who forces you to view the world from a Romantic viewpoint. It is really curious to note the point of convergence between religious and more secular Romanticism in Sandra’s works, especially this novel. Sandra eschews any group activity to focus exclusively on self-cultivation. Now it is also true that this is typical of many present-day romantics, which includes the writer of this critique too! It might be a reflection of the modern trend of being more comfortable with introversion and individualism. This surely adds to the beauty of Sandra’s novel and so we will surely not complain about it. After all, which new romantic has the qualification to complain? Who does not do the same?! It is a sad fact that romanticism as a movement was eclipsed by more pressing realities and urgent concerns of modern life, which is anything but simple. We need more writers like Sandra who will contribute their mite to the attempts to revive Romanticism, a Romanticism which is not ashamed of itself, which does not revel in self-annihilation, but rather seeks to express itself and also to attract out attention to the differences that make it stand out from the pack, though characters such as Matrix who are true diehard romantics at heart. Read this novel today. It is so concise you can read it even as you commute. But do pay adequate attention to the underlying Romantic ideology that is motivating this blessed writer to write such an enchanting novel. I enjoyed this book and I am sure you will too.< Less
