Violet: the dark one, dressed in forever black, longing to spin the world into her own silver-screen creation. Claire: a real-life Tinker Bell, radiating love, dressed in wings of glitter, writing poetry to keep away the darkness. Cut To: L.A.: a city as beautiful as it is dangerous, where flowers and sunsets glow lush but poisonous. Within this landscape, Violet and Claire vow to make their own movie. They will show the world the way they want it to be.
i thought that violet and claire was one of the most beautifully written books i have ever read. it focuses on the lives of two girls living in L.A. it is very surreal and you feel like you are reading a dream and the person hasn't woken up. This book is nothing you would expect from a teenage novel. It has passion, but not love and aching and longing and ambition. The only critical remark i can make is that it wasn't long enough. I wanted it never to end.
Violet & Claire is about a beautiful friendship torn apart. Violet is a screenwriter, Claire is a fairy wing wearing poet. Together they make the perfect friendship, until success, love and L.A tear them apart. This book will break your heart and put it back together again.
I was looking forward to reading this book after reading a review about it on a site (i can't remember which) but i was left disappointed. The book was small and lacked description. It breezed through time, skimming over important parts. I didn't find myself warming to the characters at all and i didn't care about them. Maybe it is my age (21) as the characters are 17(?) or maybe it was just the book. Either way, i regret wasting my time and money on it.
This book was weird, but good. It took me a while to understand. Francesca Lia Block has wrote this book in a sort of fantasy way, not a realistic way, which made the book a good read since it was different from others.
