"... I liked its language a lot. It is light
and pleasant... It makes reading it easy... I liked the
structure of the book."
Kira Sinou, KIFISSOS - monthly magazine, Kifissia, Athens,
"... I enjoyed the House for Five with
my heart... It is tender, human, real, an everyday story
but also an original one..."
Nitsa Georgeoglou, writer (Letter) - 10 September 1987
"... A house for five with parents who have been
married before and stepbrothers. A situation that appears
problematic when viewed with prejudice and fear. It
is, however, nothing more than an ordinary story of
cohabitation with five persons who share their time,
their worries and a home. They also share their joys,
their dreams and their love. Why should it be any different?
They are after all a family."
EPIKAIRA magazine, Athens 16 July 1987
"... What make the book interesting are not only
its topic but also its style of writing. Full of funny
episodes and some tragic moments it brings the characters
to life. Difficulties, problems and unexpected events
are illustrated with humor; optimism and love for life
ANTI magazine, Athens, 14 August 1987
"... A topic original for its conception, but
also modern for what it advocates. Loty Petrovits had
the wonderful idea to expand this contemporary problem
to a novel with a cinematographic structure. This way
not only did she provide her career with a milestone,
but she also provided our children's literature with
a piece of work, which is youthful and refreshing."
DIADROMES magazine, No 7, Autumn 1987
"... What we can find in the House for Five is
tenderness, thoughtfulness, optimism, psychological
insights, humor and strong emotions, as well as an equally
interesting plot and suspense. All these can be found
in portions wisely considered by the author. "
Manos Kondoleon, DIAVAZO magazine, No 177, Athens, 28
"... The book House for Five was written
for children over the age of nine and for adolescents.
It could be useful to grown ups as well. It gives us
the opportunity to stare at an oasis of life, which
grew on top of the wreckage of two marriages. "
Ioannis Theoharis, PROINOS LOGOS (newspaper) Ioannina,
3 November 1987
"... The world described by the author remains
undamaged despite numerous problems, showing that purity
of the heart, a sense of family, dedication and selflessness
lead to self-realization and happiness."
