The author of the novel Margo Cass can only be described as a literary artisan. Writing for me is an art form, it is much of an art form as beautiful renaissance sculptures (I have a passion for reading as well as the renaissance period!), paintings and wonderfully executed movies that excite the viewer. The objective of any great writer is that of any artist; it is to communicate a message and to delight the recipient whether that be the listener, the viewer or the reader… in this case the reader. Cass has wonderfully delighted me and has made me fall in love with literature all over again. She truly is an incredible talent who manages to grip her readers easily, and so I am in awe of her!
