Sabine's Notebook (Griffin & Sabine Trilogy #2) Read Online Free - Griffin
Foolish man. You cannot turn me into a phantom because you are frightened. You do not dismiss a muse at a whim. If you will not join me--then I will come to you.
Sabine was supposed to be imaginary, a friend and lover that Griffin had created to soothe his loneliness. But she threatens to become embodied--to appear on his doorstep, in fact. So he runs.
Faced with the terrifying prospect of meeting his own fictional character, Griffin runs. His journey begins conventionally--tracing a course through Europe and the Mediterranean--but slowly Griffin begins to realize that he is traveling backward in time, drifting through layers of dead civilizations and his own soul. His precarious link to reality is the possibly unreal Sabine, who is living in his house in London and keeping a notebook of his letters and her responses.
Once again, the story is told in strangely beautiful postcards and richly decorated letters that must actually be removed from their envelopes to be read. But Sabine's Notebook is also a sketchbook and a diary, filled with her delicately macabre drawings and notations, adding yet another layer to the visual intrigue that haunted readers of Griffin & Sabine and welcoming new readers to an even more complex and mysterious world.

In which the story of Griffin and Sabine takes an odd turn. The use of postcards and letters is no less entrancing than it was in the first book of the series. One of the subtle charms of Sabine's Notebook is the care given to describing architecture in evocative ways with use of few words: Cold...

What do I have to say when it comes to a book series, filled with postcards and letters, and yet we are right back to square one with this book? I really enjoyed it but I felt disconnected overall when it came to this particular book.
In the previous book, Sabine finally trav...

I'm probably going to get flamed for this but I read this book and I was really not all that impressed. Since I was working selling books at the time, I realize that there are some people who are passionate about the entire Griffin & Sabine series. That's fine - you are welcome to your opinio...

This sequel to Griffin and Sabine is more of what I loved about the first book: beautiful art and the fun of reading an imaginary correspondence. I can't call it a successful romance because I didn't fall in love with the characters the way they fell in love with each other, but the ending was in...

love "opening" mails with fake-nation stamps on it - or "peeking" into other people's mail - it's feeding on this fantasy of having such fabulous painting as your country's postage - amidst streams of meaningless emails we get at work ;-( this suppressed mail-envy is feeding nick's fan into book...

Now it's Sabines turn, it's like a treasure hunt, across the universe, to find the answer to the ultimate question, or maybe to even find the question it's self. But these artistically beautiful poetic declarations of love are worth reading over and over again. Each is a beautiful treasure all in...

I suppose the story is alright, it's a bit melodramatic for my taste, but the artwork is absolutely amazing - a mix of surreal and still life impossible to resist. Which is why I'll be checking out all the other books in this series too, certainly not for the overblown "love" story.

The second book in the Griffin and Sabine trilogy (that eventually spawned a second trilogy) sees Sabine come to London, only to find that Griffin has fled. The letters between them continue, Sabine being the supportive friend and love as Griffin tries to figure himself out. Of all of the books i...

This is the second book in the Griffin and Sabine trilogy, and I would highly recommend reading all three of these visual novels back to back. There are clues all over the place people, so don't rush through. My love affair with mail art continued as I poured over the postcards and letters. I thi...

Not sure that I really understood what was going on but the pictures were very special. I think what I liked the most about these books was sensation of reading personal letters, cards, and postcards.
