Lulu, Jamila and Zahra are females trapped within society expectations, religious beliefs, and cultural bias. The first quarter of the story detailed their historical past. The rest focuses on their lives as adults although it jumps intermittently back to the past. There is a bit of sadness for the situations that carry throughout the book even though it comes down to the simple choices the women make. The glossary of terms is indicative of any uniqueness found in the story line. ( )

This got me confused. I just don't get this story. Don't get me wrong, it was beautifully written but words are meaningless if it does not convey what it is supposed to impart. Who the hell is Enoch? Is he a magical creature? Is he a prophet? Is he liken to the Spirit King? It left us with no explanation. How about the war? Everyone dies in it, why is there a war in the first place?

This book just left me dizzy. ( )

I received Dancing in the Shadows of Love as an AR book. This was a very difficult book for me to get into. The book tells the stories of 3 women but they don't really seem to go together for a VERY long time in the book. The author also used many words as replacement words for things such a church so I personally spent the first few times I sat down to read revisiting the glossary in orde to really understand what I was reading. Now, I read a lot of different things but for some reason I had a difficult time "getting into" this book. I honestly probably would not have finished it if I hadn't been asked to review it. That being said I am sure that this would be a much more interesting book for others. It had quite a bit of the dark and twisty in it and is definitely NOT a light read. As long as you know that going in- and don't mind having to check the vocabulary it could be a great book for you. It just wasnt' a great book for me. ( )

Librarything winner joycedlee,
I did not like this book. First of all I couldnt keep up with the story line. The book jumped from one character to the next. Sorry but I like to read a book to enjoy it not spend two days on trying to figure out who's who.

Had a hard time getting into the book but once I was into it I didn't want to put it down. Very interesting ending, a lot of twist and turns along the way. I would recommend this book to others. Loved the glossary of words that may not be known to most, made a lot easier to read. ( )
