Review of Sharon Black's "Deeply Rooted"
The following is a review of Sharon Black's story, "Deeply Rooted"
which appears in Hadrosaur Tales 8
Sharon Black's "Deeply Rooted" is a romantic fable disguised as science
fiction. A theme of universal longing for love and affection can only be
fulfilled through a morbid transformation in this tale. For Black's
idealized characters to find true happiness with each other they must become
trees in a fictitious municipal park. The
narrator's tone comes through as irritated by the world and unsatisfied that
he cannot find love in a place filled with immortal lovers.
