THE BIRD THAT SANG IN COLOR by Grace Mattioli (Book Review #912)


The bird that sang in color is the story of Donna. She has a particular image of what a perfect life looks like and imposes this thought on her brother Vincent. As she works hard to provide these things, she fails, and that guilt trips her until she finds a book of sketches he’s made of his life, allowing her to discover what truly makes him happy.

The dynamic of the family and the connection between Donna and Vincent were beautiful. The author expresses her view about pictures and how one can use them to signify their life. Drawings are not photographing. They mean more, and for this reason, the author gets inspired to write this book. I found this to be very appealing to me as her interpretation truly reflected on the storyline.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The message is clear. Like the bird singing in color on the cover image of the book, the author believes that we shouldn’t just blend into the background of society’s convention. The literature was well written and enjoyable to read.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fictional and inspirational stories.
