    About Author

    1. Brigid Lowry was born in New Zealand into a rather strange but very creative family Here she learned a love of books, too many swear words and how to cook a decent omelette Brigid s early, rather awful poetry was made into a small book by her father, a printer and typographer, and sold to kindly relatives for two and sixpence a copy Thus her writing career was launched, but it took about twenty years for her to take it to a higher place In the meantime she tried being a hippie, a waitress, a software tutor, a librarian, a mother, a wife and a primary school teacher.At the age of thirty five Brigid returned to university and began to publish poetry and short fiction Her first young adult book was Fizz Max Me, which was published in the Dolly Fiction series As well as teaching her how to write dialogue, this book paid Brigid the grand sum of 3000 and inspired her to apply for an Arts Council Grant for funding to write a second young adult book With the grant safely in the bank, armed with nothing than a flimsy idea about a girl who wanted a nose ring, Brigid wrote Guitar Highway Rose Constructed in a quirky collage style, this book was a runaway success It was shortlisted for a number of major prizes in Australia, and won the WA Hoffman Young Readers Choice Award.Brigid s star sign is Aries, and she has a tattoo of an island, a palm tree and a planet on her left shoulder She has an MA in Creative Writing and teaches creative writing here and there Brigid is currently working on a new young adult book and has recently returned to live in her homeland, New Zealand, after living for 27 wonderful years in Australia.

    One thought on “Triple Ripple: A Fabulous Fairytale

    1. Triple Ripple A Fabulous Fairytale is the new young adult book from Brigid Lowry Triple Ripple is a wonderful Grimm esque fairytale that folds in on itself and splinters into three different stories Reminiscent of The Neverending Story and The Princess Bride , Lowry writes from three different perspectives the characters, reader and writer as they journey through the plot on a conspicuously parallel time line.The writer has come up with a fabulous fairytale about a girl called Glory Glory has ju [...]


    2. I m hard pressed to say that a novel I ve read is one of a kind There s a lot of books out there, everything s been done, and most authors are striving to put a unique twist on something that, if you look hard enough, is a trope we ve seen before TRIPLE RIPPLE, though, surprised me If there are other books like this out there, I haven t seen them.Brigid Lowry s latest follows three oddly intertwined narratives First there is the writer, who is penning a new fairytale novel, struggling with vario [...]


    3. Great concept, poor execution I hated the writing style and the author has clearly never met a teenager Jodi Picoult s Between the Lines was infinitely better.



    4. I was tossing between 2 or 3 stars, but I settled on 3 because I couldn t get past how creative and unique the concept of this book is Having the writer contemplating about what should happen next, the reader talking about the book and using it as an outlet from her life and the story itself being developed was really something else.However, there were some parts which I didn t like or I found unnecessary Honestly, the fairy tale just really wasn t good, perhaps it just wasn t suited for my age [...]


    5. While the idea of the metafictional approach taken in the book appealed to me it contained the actual fairytale, the Writer s story and the Reader s one the execution fell a little flat for me The fairytale was delightful enough The Writer s own thoughts did ring through The Reader had her own life and struggles that on some level tied in with the fairytale and some themes paralleled each other However, by taking this approach, maybe depth had to be somewhat sacrificed Also, complexity in this n [...]


    6. The classic fairy tale mixed with the modern tale When you state like that yes it sounds good, but unfortunately it didn t rise to my expectations I have read a couple of Brigid Lowry s books before, and thoroughly enjoyed them Though this book this book is a whole other tale.First of all, i felt the plot was a bit dry and needed livening up, though it still kept me going The writer s i thought was not needed, as it just made it bring and bland I also got confused because I had not realized un [...]


    7. Mmm, have you ever bought that cheap no frills napolitana ice cream which goes all watery at the bottom when it melts and you realise you have just been eating sugary fluff Well this is how I found the experience of Bridget Lowry s new one It is written with three intersecting plots the writer, the reader and the fairy story the writer is attempting to write I was intrieged by the concept but found the fairy story so banal that in the end I just followed the writer s voice which sounded very Bri [...]


    8. The reason I chose to read this book was because I thought it looked interesting, started reading it and couldn t stop till I was finished.This fits into my bingo board under the category A book written by a New Zealander.Well I liked just about everything about this book because it was easy to understand, in one of my favourite genres and my favourite part of all was that it showed three different points of view as it showed the writer creating the story, the story itself and the person writing [...]


    9. This was a nice, enjoyable read, with very smooth writing and easy transitions between authors notes, the readers life , and the chapters The authors notes themselves were short and sweet, like little pastries that you buy while christmas shopping something light to make the whole experience enjoyable The readers life was also intriguing, and I thought Lowry had good timing when deciding where to insert these snippets, as well as for how long.The fairytale story was lovely and charming and orig [...]


    10. Glory is a girl with a destiny, already cursed before she is born Mirabella, who appears to have everything, is cursed in a different way entrapped by her life as a Princess, her only escape a marriage to shore up the country s flagging finances In another world, teenage Nova is bullied at school and worried at home Even the writer has problems of her own, from distractions to deadlines In this skilfully woven and absorbing tale there are three separate stories that of the characters in the tale [...]


    11. I found this book extremely confusing to start with especially with the three narratives But then i decided it was better to read one at a time, which made it easier to read.This is a story of three different places, times and people One is the Author of the book and the story as she writes it The second of a 15 year old girl with problems at school and the last of a girl in a half fantasy land Their stories intertwine in the chapters and the author does change the plot as it goes along But over [...]


    12. I ve never read a book constructed quite like this before I really liked the way the author layered the stories it has a post modern feel to it The layer of the author especially works well giving YA readers that often wished for look into the mind and processes of the author loved the rewritten chapter The story ies read along so smoothly but I expect connecting the three threads together was no easy task Her characters in each story were believable, likable and worth spending time with.


    13. 2 1 2 Stars.I am not really sure whether I liked this book I found that I got really into Glory s story and it was really annoying when the other two character s stories came into it Later on I got into Nova s story but I never really connected to the writer.I did not understand how the writer was also writing the reader s or Nova s story I also found that the story wrapped up really quickly and predictably.Would be really good for younger readers 7 11 except that there is are some adult concep [...]


    14. Wonderful I read this with my daughter and it was lots of fun I loved the different perspectives of the story It added something fresh and new How much of our lives is reflected in what we write read Do our reads influence our day to days a little There were many cute and quirky stories within this story, all adding their own element to the main fairytale Brigid Lowry s Juicy Writing is also great for anyone who likes creative writing.


    15. I loved this book I wanted Glory and Rolf to kiss, and when I thought they were going to for the first time, he proposed So they got married before they even kissed so romantic Royal romance is kind of strange although It was funny when Glory thought she had to save a human s life but she ended up rescuing a small dog, I guess a chiwahwah ffrom dying the dreadful death of the CHICKEN BONE


    16. I loved this style of fairy tale and especially discovering the frustrations, joys and processes of an author while writing I must say it s the first book I ve read that includes an author as a character, i really enjoyed it, and i wouldn t be surprised if many of the happenings with the author were inspired be Brigid s own experiences Another fabulously quirky read


    17. A fun teen fic read which interweaves the story of a modern reader, the writer of the story and the fantasy story at the centre Excellent for highlighting the writing process and reminding readers that the writer is agonising over the story and how it will end up while dealing with their own real world Recommended for 12 16yr old girls.


    18. I liked how there was three points of veiw the reader, the writer and the story, especially because there was a writer one because I never really thought about how the writer was feeling through out the book.


    19. I really enjoyed this book I love that it had the three different parts to it, and that they all ended happily ever after A very good book.





    20. I just LOVE novels based on fairytales and this one looks like it s got a great post modern self referential twist to it Bring it on


    21. I really enjoyed this book I love that it had the three different parts to it, and that they all ended happily ever after A very good book.
