    This islike lazy fan fiction from a fan who wanted to continue writing about the characters that left in Green Angel Also, a fantasy novel shouldn t mean that all the rules can be broken There must be some believability in it Too many things were convenient and way too safe for a place that s supposed to be in a dangerous post apocalyptic setting This is also clearly a sequel that cannot be read alone or out of order, so every time Green kept talking about her past, it felt like that m This islike lazy fan fiction from a fan who wanted to continue writing about the characters that left in Green Angel Also, a fantasy novel shouldn t mean that all the rules can be broken There must be some believability in it Too many things were convenient and way too safe for a place that s supposed to be in a dangerous post apocalyptic setting This is also clearly a sequel that cannot be read alone or out of order, so every time Green kept talking about her past, it felt like that made up for 50% of the book which we already knew about.Spoilers ahead.Diamond gave me the impression that he was just a friend in Green Angel Apparently, in Green Witch he is the romantic love of her life she has been dying for which would have been perfectly fine if it didn t seem so unbelievable later She finally decides to search for him and the process ends up being so easy it s laughable.Everything else is convenient from here she easily finds and frees Diamond and his family, he somehow found a way to tattoo himself in prison to match her tattoos too, learned to speak her language fluently, locks two guards into a cell easily without any mention of how he fought them, and knows where Heather is when he didn t even know who she was in the first book This is all within three pages.When Green easily breaks through the THREE locks on Heather s cell it made no sense to me The locks were implying how dangerous Heather was, but there was no explanation for why they found her as such a threat, especially when she has a baby she gave birth to during her imprisonment And security really sucks for this place so the prison doesn t even seem so dangerous Of course, the first thing Heather says when Green frees her is I didn t give him a name Now Green can name a baby which is somehow just like Green It soundslike the baby is her daughter, not Heather s.Something that also bothered me was that there was a woman who lived in a high tower that you could only reach by climbing a rickety ladder Her home is so high that Green says that she passed through a CLOUD Then after the woman feeds Green and they have a conversation, it s revealed that the woman turned BLIND on the day of the fire a year ago What the heck So this woman lost her eyesight and somehow managed to travel and make a home in a high tower post accident How did she even live up there with no sight anyway And how did she come down the tower to visit Green at the end Don t tell me it s because she can see the future, because being psychic doesn t mean it grants you eyesight to navigate your way around I can t even say this is a minor nuisance because the book is barely 130 pages with a small number of words per page, so this woman takes up a good amount of length for me to point it out And lastly, Green became an omniscient narrator, which didn t work for me She knew what people were thinking and we have no choice but to know she is correct So what was unique about this book Nothing Green makes customized paper for each person to hear their story and finds all the characters that left in the first book That s pretty much it I don t see any character development I mean, what development could there be if everything worked out perfectly with NO explanations There s no conflict because it was all so easy.I am so disappointed in this sequel Of course, I m happy to know there s a happy ending I loved the characters in Green Angel My only issue with this book was the poor writing quality.The only reason why I think it deserves a star is that I m glad there was a closure that all of the fans wanted, which is a pretty bias thing for me to do for rating a book I can t even hate this because I can feel at peace about what happened to everyone afterward I would have given this 0 stars if it ruined everything.I actually wouldn t discourage a fan to read it because this is all about a happy closure All it does it give answers to those who are curious about where the characters ended up Unfortunately, the problem for me is that it felt like a joke I would not recommend it to a fan who wants the literary quality to be just as good as Green Angel

    I ve read so many books lately where they all sound the same and the characters are stereotypical That s probably why I found this book to be a little gem It s just a mere 135 pages long, but it s full of beautiful, poetic detailing Hardly any dialogue, which I m not used to, nevertheless, it makes sense because of the nature of the story and the loneliness of the characters This book had tragic to romantic imagery and emotions Maybe it s the books I ve read recently or the mood I m in toda I ve read so many books lately where they all sound the same and the characters are stereotypical That s probably why I found this book to be a little gem It s just a mere 135 pages long, but it s full of beautiful, poetic detailing Hardly any dialogue, which I m not used to, nevertheless, it makes sense because of the nature of the story and the loneliness of the characters This book had tragic to romantic imagery and emotions Maybe it s the books I ve read recently or the mood I m in today, but I really liked this book and Alice Hoffman s creativity Some books, unfortunately are read just to havebooks added to the read shelf on goodreads, but other books draw out the love of reading and for the stories that are told The journey of this village and of Green herself, made me excited to read her story I don t think I ve built this book up too much, because the writing tells it all Simple, but elegant I ll definitely have to check outof Hoffman s work

    I had a hard time following this story and didn t really like itI feel like maybe the genre isn t for me Or maybe I needed to have read book one first I didn t like how the dialogue was written in the book italicized and not in quotes , but that s just a minor dislike All in all, just not for me.

    Personal ResponseThis book was very interesting I was confused in the beginning about what was all happening But then I learned that Green Witch is a sequel to Green Angelwhich I should have read first Except for all my confusion, I really like the book The witchs personal stories were interesting and the objects they gave Green were unique The author did a great job relating all the characters and objects without being too cheesy Overall, I quite enjoyed the book.Plot SummaryGreen thou Personal ResponseThis book was very interesting I was confused in the beginning about what was all happening But then I learned that Green Witch is a sequel to Green Angelwhich I should have read first Except for all my confusion, I really like the book The witchs personal stories were interesting and the objects they gave Green were unique The author did a great job relating all the characters and objects without being too cheesy Overall, I quite enjoyed the book.Plot SummaryGreen thought she had everything But one day, her village is burned down She loses everything, her mom, dad, sister, and city Her love was driven away to look for his own family and her best friend disappeared That event brings dangerous memories with the future seeming distant.Green isolates herself in her home and has to attend to her garden every day so it does not overflow She also tells stories to the village people But, Green is in need of new stories She embarks on a journey to find enchanted women that the village calls witches Each witch experienced a loss with the fire Their new habits make people believe they are witches, but they are just grieving widows Green writes their story on paper that matches their habits At each departing, a witch gives Green an object that helps her with her final journey Green goes to the prison to set her friend, Heather, free and rescue her love, Diamond, from his grieving She uses the objects to escape to freedom At the end of the story, Green and Diamond are living happily with each witch taking their habits and making a beautiful gift for Green The characters are all happy and the town is restored.RecommendationI recommend Green Witchto people who are going through a rough time The book goes through with ladies having a hard time and with what they have, they recover High School students interested in a fairly hard, fast read should read this book There is not really any inappropriate parts so most readers do not need to be worried High school girls would be able to read this book

    Personal ResponsePersonally, I really liked the bookGreen Witch. The fact that the whole book is in first person only adds to the book s story It makes it feel like the book is written by the main character and is not just any old fairytale and considering the main character is a writer makes it evenbelievable and makes the story flow a lot better.Plot SummaryThe book is about a girl named Green who lost her family and the love of her life to a radical terrorist group called The Horde S Personal ResponsePersonally, I really liked the bookGreen Witch. The fact that the whole book is in first person only adds to the book s story It makes it feel like the book is written by the main character and is not just any old fairytale and considering the main character is a writer makes it evenbelievable and makes the story flow a lot better.Plot SummaryThe book is about a girl named Green who lost her family and the love of her life to a radical terrorist group called The Horde She becomes a gifted writer and farmer after her city was burned down by The Horde She becomes a natural leader and the people of her village look up to her Many people would tell her their stories on how they lost their loved ones and how it affected them One day she hears about some gossip going around on people called the Enchanted who are supposed, witches She herself was said to be the green witch because of her unnatural gardening abilities She then goes on a journey to hear the other witches stories and hopefully find her love.Recommendations I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light read, but of an interesting book Green Witch is an interesting book that cuts the size of a normal book to a little over a 100 pages Even though the book is small the author put a lot of cool facts and other interesting side stories into the book to make it interesting to older audiences.CharacterizationThroughout the book the Main character, Green did not change all that much At the beginning of the book Green stays kind of secluded and helps a lot of people who come her way Later she decides to go on an adventure to meet all the Enchanted and to find her love who was someone she healed

    Where Green Angel broke me open and slowly began the journey of healing, Green Witch continues the story of what it means to move forward after loss.I loved the imagery and the broad truths spoken about life However, I wish the author could have fleshed out Green s journey a bitMeeting the different witches felt abbreviated, and the lessons each witch had to teach didn t hit with the same emotion I felt in the first book Still a fantastic read and worth incorporating into your life

    This is beautiful and magical as the first book Green Angel I love how to story finally winds up with people coming together, adversity overcomed and hope of better future established The way the story is told is fairytale like I love the element of magic and adventure in this.

    Only after finishing the book did I realise there was a Green Angel to have read first I didn t miss it I just loved this book for what it was, dripping with symbolism, full of magic and a story of hope I could have read it in one but instead I managed two sittings It s really a book to savour though, to appreciate the marvellous descriptions and learn the lessons it teaches.
