Review: Geoffrey the Very Strange by Angel Martinez

Rating: 4.5 🌈

Gentle, sweet , lovingly well crafted story of acceptance and love, Geoffrey the Very Strange is certainly a Angel Martinez tale!

By that I mean it contains all the signature elements I have learned to expect and frankly hope to see in one of her stories. Quixotic humor, recognizable fantasy beings with that Martinez twist to them, like a necromancer who’s not exactly what you’d bring to mind when conjuring up said necromancers.

And situations that speak of hilarity as well as horror, poignancy as well as soft joy.

Geoffrey the Very Strange’s journey towards acceptable, community, and love is lovely and sweet. And funny.

I absolutely enjoyed it . And am recommending it.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
