What follows this abduction is a novel in the form of overlapping short stories about the women who are affected both directly and indirectly by the kidnapping. The purpose of these stories is not to unite a community around a tragedy as a less daring and more conventional narrative would have it, but to expose the ways in which the women of Kamchatka are fragmented personally, culturally and emotionally not only by the crime that jump-starts the novel, but by place, identity and the people who try, and often.

Visitation Street is urban opera writ large. Destined to be a classic . When a teen runs away from his father's mysterious commune, he sets in motion a domino effect that will connect six characters desperate for hope and love, set across the sun-bleached canvas of Los Angeles.

How do you know if love is real or just an illusion?When Mel Snow meets the talented magician Toby Warring in a dusty roadside bar, she is instantly drawn to the brilliant performer whose hands can effortlessly pull stray saltshakers and poker chips from thin air and conjure castles out of the desert sands. Just two days later they are married, beginning their life together in the shadow of Las Vegas, where Toby hopes to make it big. Mel knows that magicians are a dime a dozen, but Toby is different—his magic is real.As Toby’s renown grows and Mel falls more and more in love with his wonderments, she starts to realize that Toby's powers are as unstable as they are dazzling. She learns that he once made his assistant disappear completely, and couldn’t bring her back. And then, just as Mel becomes convinced that his magic is dangerous, a trick goes terribly awry during his Strip debut.Exiled from the stage, Mel and Toby flee the lights of Las Vegas for the streets of Amsterdam where a cabal of old-time magicians, real magicians like Toby, try to rescue him from his despair. But he’s haunted by the trick that failed, and obsessed with using his powers to right his mistakes, leaving Mel to wonder if the love they share is genuine or merely a fantasy, conjured up by a lost magician looking to save himself from being alone.Ivy Pochoda’s spellbinding and cinematic storytelling seamlessly fuses timeless magic to modern-day passion.

A softly sweet story that takes you through a short time in the narrator's life. The storyline's conflicts are of emotion and personalities though there is no main character who is hated or portrayed as a lesser being. The magic is not grandiose for the most part, and so can seem more real. The personalities of both main characters are strong but the conflict is not; by the end one feels that everything has worked out as it should. Not a deeply philosophical story but very pleasant to read, and one looks forward to picking the book up and seeing what will happen, because the narrator becomes a character you can care about.

The book was OK, but I really found it pretty hard to believe and hard to get into. Usualy I read books pretty quickl;y once I start them, but this one was just hard to not put down and do something else or read something else. I read it mainly because her latest book Visitation Street has gotten great reviews and my friends who have read it thought it was a great book. Maybe I expected too much of her first book. Should be getting Visitation Street soon from the library so will know if it lives up to its reviews. This is only my opinion, other people may find this book great.

If you've ever read a book that you didn't want to end, then read this one. It's about love, magic in the true sense and so much more. A chance meeting brings about things one could only dream about. Ivy Pochoda has a rare gift as a writer. She transports the reader to another realm. She is one of the best young writers around, and this book proves it. Read it...you won't be sorry. I can't wait to read her next novel.

This book is being read by my book club, and that is the only reason I am still reading it. There is some underlying thread that is just out of reach of understanding, and rather than being intriguing, it is annoying. I'm 2/3 through the book, and I still do not understand the characters, or what the premise of the book is. Weird and annoying.

Both characters had magical powers which threw me at first but it was beautifully written with lots of rich imagery and deep emotion. However, it was sad, and at times dark. It does not have a happy ending.

It was mysterious, to say the very least. I did enjoy it. The magic he displayed was first introdued to me in "Night Circus." Amazing as it is, I believe there are people who can pull objects out of thin air and actually make things disappear. If you can take a peek beyond what you know is true, you will enjoy this book. We all need some magic in our lives.

well written but did not engage my interests beyond the beginning. too fabricated.
