Bestseller Kindle Lily of Lamoranth OMG I AM FINALLY DONE WITH THIS BOOK! *elation* This book is longer than it needs to be, and truth be told, I almost gave up, but there are plenty of good parts that made me glad I experienced them. The first third to half of the book weighed on my patience and took me way too long to slough through, but I flew through the last half.Lowry has great command of metaphor. The Fear (related to the protagonist, Lily, wearing iron or exposure to magic) was described in such a way that I immediately recognized it as a metaphor for anxiety and depression. I think Lily's strength in enduring the Fear was the author's way of working/writing through personal experience(s) with anxiety and depression. The other well-executed metaphor is (view spoiler)[ the nervous energy Lily feels when it hits her that after all this time of speaking with and getting to know Alder, they are actually going to meet in physical form. It immediately brought to mind the feeling of becoming close friends with someone online, and then what a person goes through at the moment you are going to meet that person in real life. All those expectations and anxiety of not meeting the other person's expectations.(hide spoiler)] Lowry was fantastic at pulling the reader into Lily's emotions through appealing to the readers' own feelings and experiences.
