EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

Anna-Maria 101 Breathings' of Leonard Oprea is an outstanding novel, a human condition -symphony about the American family's misery, about the American society's failure today, in the 21st Century. In order to build his masterpiece, the artist composed 101 Breathings. Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, a new, an original type of essay in the whole world literature. The Breathing is a simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But - this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it RE-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. Thus, in this so genuine and different work there are short stories, poetry and essays, all perfectly mixed. Great wit and irony, and a deep sense of morality. And, even a special kind of suspense. You read an unforgettable odyssey. Leonard Oprea is an atemporal artist. His genius is of an iconoclast novelist, poet, essayist. His works are forever. His mission, God-is-Love.
(Theophil Magus philosopher, novelist, poet and essayist)
***
Leonard Oprea's dominant perspective is one of a cold objectivity, too little disposed to easy emotions, other than those hidden, profound feelings and questions. Themes are the life purpose, the ultimate springs of human actions... Intelligence, laconic sarcasm, humor, right targeting. How could we not be indebted to the author? He put his talent of storytelling to serve an exhortation which is nothing else than the health response in the presence of the morbid, the simplicity in the face of artificial, the man-loving of light against darkness and evil.
(Nicolae Steinhardt philosopher, essayist and author)
***
A novelist and essayist of Leonard Oprea's literary value does not need any introduction. From no one.
(Valeriu Gherghel philosopher , essayist, literary critic and author)
***
"NOTA BENE - in this unique book, 'Anna-Maria 101 Breathings', the reader will find, not by random there positioned, a few blank pages.These un-written pages are for the reader's commentaries, drawings and, why not? the reader's breathings.Thus, the reader will become a co-author of this sui-generis novel. Enjoy."
(Leonard Oprea - the author)
