YMMV / Ariel (Block)

Go To

  • Word of God: While the author loves Ariel and Erskine, "I’m not as taken with other elements of the book, including the ending. I’d have ended the book differently if I could have figured out how. Some people were bothered by the ending, finding it ambiguous, and other people liked the ending because of its ambiguity." And on he says:
    "A publisher provided the premise of Ariel—an adoption that went awry. I was in Charleston when I began the book, and chose that extraordinary city as its setting. I don’t know to what extent the book works—I should note that not every reader agreed with the one quoted above—but I greatly enjoyed the interplay of Ariel and her friend Erskine, and on certain nights I can still hear her flute off in the distance."
