Review: The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone
The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Addison Stone was a young artist that had many fans. Not only was she brilliant, she pushed her art to the impossible and created works that were beyond words. After her tragic death on July 28th, her fans and others in the art world wanted to know more. The story is unraveled for the reader through a series of interviews, diary entries, emails and other communications.
The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone is a novel that the reader will wish was about a real person. The issues this eccentric artist was working through are similar to what many of us experience at some point in our life. Griffin shaped a story out of so many different types of medium, yet the reader is not distracted by the ever changing format. A great standalone novel for those who want a break from all the varied genres and just want a book about a person that really could be true.
