I couldn't put this book down! The authentic adolescent voice (so rare to find) captured and held my attention on every page. The universal coming-of-age themes are seamlessly folded into a intense narrative that is, in turn, heart-breaking, poignant, and funny. The engaging protagonist, Rachel, is shattered by her disappointment in those she trusts, and, most compellingly, in herself. INTENTIONS is an outstanding book for teens and for everyone who has come to appreciate human frailty and the transformative power of forgiveness.

This book was chosen by my Hadassah group for a book study. Although the story line got into a lot of things about teen-age angst, the writing style is definitely one that would be more appropriate for a young adult than it would be for an adult. However, with the subject content range would not necessarily be one that I would want my teenager to read during those tumultuous years.

During a timid spring day inside a small library somewhere in Nottinghamshire, there is an ongoing debate about the philosophical meaning of Art.

Cyril is a cultured man a lover of art it seems that he lives inside a painting , he usually describe in detail what there is around him entranced by the beautiful of the nature.

Vivian on the contrary is a girl of essence; her vision of the world is characterized by cause and effect, everything is well organized, by the mother nature.

Her philosophy is those of a world in decadence where every behavior is dictated by our selfishness rather than appreciation of things.

In the first pages of this short story, there is an interesting debate in telling that nature and visual art are two different and incompatible entities, in the sense that a paintings is nothing else that the perception of the artist.

A painting is nothing else the visual preferences of the artist that does not represent the image or better the intrinsic message of the observer.

Vivian is writing an interesting article "The Decay of Lying" for a prestigious and intellectual magazine.

Her personal consideration of the visual art has not a positive valence, because according to her thought a painting is nothing else that a personal projection of a particular detail, chose by the artist, without considering its complex context.

This does not happen regarding the novels as a tool for analyzing people under different and variegate point of views, with a risk of nullify supported by her phrase;

"The more one analyses people, the more all reasons for analysis disappear"

The essence of this phrase is the description of a complex and interconnected world, where everything must be defined in detail like a surgeon.

In my opinion for her the art is a sort of metaphor of the modern world that is going to in the wrong direction, for instance the art under the metaphysical prospective is a sort of Darwinism where the main risk is for the next generations which will be based on the art to judge their present.

The main reason is that the "Art never express anything but itself" in brief the art will influence the realism giving a negative social model, the art does not represent what the artists see but they depict the ideology of the commitment.

I had no idea what to expect from this book. I chose to read it because I liked another book by this author. I was surprised by all of the connections to art, aesthetics and criticism. Those are areas I am very interested in and never expected this book to address complex questions in depth, leaving room for ambiguity and disagreement. It will make you think.

Also agent read this yet.

Fickle, stylish, witty and often smug. This is Wilde at his most quotable, alternating with longish summaries of Dante and Shakespeare used to illustrate aesthetic ideas with which Wilde himself doesn't even really agree.
