The Analysis of Amber’s Adventures
The Serenade of Simeon Stradivari is a creative thesis part of Master of Creative Writing project. The novel is set in fantasy and urban setting, written in a way to incorporate narrative tools from comics and games, aiming to draw readers, who have become accustomed to fast paced, effortless way of story-telling. The purpose of the novel was not only to tell an exciting adventure story but to explore themes of forgiveness, bullying and redemption. It is told in a teenager’s first person subjective view to help young readers identify with the protagonist. It is accompanied by the exegesis, The Analysis of Amber’s Adventures, which frames the creative work exploring the definition of the young adult genre, the common clichés in it and the limitations and success of incorporating the comic and game tools in my thesis.
