Reviews For The Findaráto Diaries
At the end of the story, I’m left feeling it is a gentle story about living and learning, family and friendships. I liked the way the story is addressed, the touches of names and the limited but effective use of language in a note from Namo at the end. I liked the innocence of it, and Finrod’s uninhibited joy in going to meet his friend.
Thanks again, Erfan. I am glad you found this such a gentle story in spite of some angsty moments in Finrod's readjustment to Life. *grin*
The story is a fresh take on Rebirth for me, an unusually difficult genre to do well in my opinion. What I enjoyed about this was the exploratory nature of Finrod’s experience, and the talking along the way that accompanied his frustrations. The changing cast of characters added interest, and likewise the places. The flowers and the tears was a moment that stands out, and the explosion of heartache at the end which was touching and well done. A profound adjustment, with a new life ahead, one lost behind him, and a wealth of experiences from his past life, Finrod’s Rebirth is not plain sailing.
Thanks, Erfan. I appreciate your thoughts and I am glad this story helped give you a new perspective on Rebirth for the Elves. Finrod's road was not an easy one, and his story is the story of all the other Elves who eventually become re-embodied and must face Life once again with all its sorrows and joys, frustrations and grace.
