Bohemia by Veronika CarnabySunday, December 16, 2012
I received a copy of the novel from the author itself. It made me jump for joy to trust my blog to give her novel a review. I’ve wanted to post this earlier this month unfortunately; I am so busy with my work and personal life. Finally, here it is...
Let me first introduce you the author:

About the book:
The novel, Bohemia, released on September 12, 2012 to widely positive reception from readers and critics alike. Influenced by the works of Beat Generation authors and great poets, the story takes place during 1960 and chronicles a group of bohemian twenty-somethings who defy the "ideals" of a mid-twentieth century society to seek creative fulfillment. On a deeper level, it portrays the creative path that artists of all mediums tread, all the while depicting the challenges faced by youth and women in the ‘60s. Moreover, the book has also gained support from legendary jazz musician and composer, Archie Shepp, who has contributed some brief words to it.
The story of this novel is very interesting. It started from the adventures of a group of young twenty-somethings. People will relate to Bohemia because it is what we experience to our day to day life. It’s about life, work and challenges in life. As for every book, I got curious for the first chapters and started liking it more from the middle to the end. I need to focus reading every word to understand it deeply. It helps me grow by throughout the story. It is an easy and relaxing book to read. It is a classic literary piece that can capture the hearts and attention of many. I recommend this book. Congratulations to Veronika Carnaby for writing her first debut novel a success!
