My Name Is Rose
Posted by Literary Titan
Growing up in a hippie commune probably sounds fantastic, right? Not for Rose. She doesn’t have the same love of the commune that her parents do and doesn’t desire isolation and living the way the commune does. She’s bored and needs something more than the life of the commune can offer her. When she begins to pull away from them seeking her own life, she begins searching for answers to questions she’s never had before. In a book about finding out what you want and who you are, Rose stays true to herself and discovers what she is looking for. In a story of love, loss, and growing up, this is truly a fantastic book that will have you going back for another read.
This was an exciting book. I could relate to Rose because she wasn’t popular, she didn’t consider herself overly pretty, you can tell in areas that she feels self-conscious and awkward. In school, I had the same experience. I was a nerd who everyone wanted to pay to do their homework but never befriend. Her story was so much more real to me because I could see myself in the story. I liked that the author portrayed real emotions that you feel at that age and made an integral part of the story. I also loved the way the author wrote the book. Her writing was clear, never dull, and the book was incredibly profound to me.
I also like the concept the author was going for and how it makes you think about life and existence. Other books have strived for that same message and didn’t pull it off with nearly as much grace and elegance. By far, she was my favorite character though I enjoyed Andrew and found myself liking her mother as well. I would rate this book a four out of five stars for the dimension she gives the characters, and the book brought me close to tears on occasion. It was hard not to get choked up with the intense emotional upheaval that the book offers.
There were places where I found myself wanting to talk some sense into Rose and Andrew, but I enjoyed the pace of the story and the lessons within the pages. My Name Is Rose is a mesmerizing coming-of-age novel that will pull at your heart.
