Reviews for ‘She dreams in Colors, She Dreams in Hope’
“The “She” in “She Dreams in Colors, She Dreams in Hope” by F. John Sharp is Pasha, a factory worker whose father and his compatriots once came close to toppling the government. His old companion, Goran, is one of her coworkers. Pasha spends her days slaving and her nights envisioning how life could be—dreams of hope to be shared with others. The questions is, are they beyond the point of even daring to dream?
Sharp draws a clear picture of a communist world on the verge and imbues his characters with strong personalities. Pasha is offbeat and sly while Goran is frustrated and full of bluster. The supporting characters add dimension. All in all, “She Dreams in Colors, She Dreams in Hope” is adroitly done.”—-Nicole McClain, Tangent
Last, but not least, I'd like to mention "She Dreams in Colors, She Dreams in Hope" by F. John Sharp. His well-rounded characters deal with sweat-shop socialism. The man who seems the most resistant, lets another man's dreams invade his own and imbue him with hope that he carries into the waking world.
