I loved Blackbird House. Every story about the house's occupants is so beautifully written, very magical.

I liked The Third Angel. I liked certain parts more than other parts. I am fan of some of her books. I like the magic in her books.
I started it, but was not able to get into it. I only read the first third and then returned it. I love most of her books, so I'm not sure why I didn't like this one. It seemed different from her others. Maybe I will be able to try again at some other time.

I like Hoffman's earlier works better than some of her latest. I read "The Third Angel", and didn't care for it. It was hard to care about any of her characters. I loved her modern reteling of "Wuthering Heights" entitled "Here on Earth" which told how the Cathy character (she had a different name which I can't remember) would have fared if she had married the Heathcliff character. Warning: it's not pretty.
I do lilke her magical realism best of all in "Practical Magic" and "Turtle Moon" I fell in love with her Julian Cash character in "Turtle Moon".
