With her novel “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” LUDMILA FILIPOVA has asserted herself as a capable and experienced author ready to enter unknown and virgin territory. “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” is written in modern style and contains both attractive and clear messages. It stands out among the most precious achievements of the contemporary Bulgarian prose, a phenomenon which is yet to be judged on its merits. Being aware of what kind of explosion hazardous matter is dealing with the author uses the dexterities of drama, fabulousness, tense thriller investigation and documentary fiction, placing the plot of her novel from 1999 to 2026 having the clear vision that the problems she is taking up which barely no one has jet paid attention to appears to be extremely topical, meaningful and worth the efforts of two years of hard work that accompanied the delivery of the novel.

She is much the same precise as a researcher and scrupulous as a skillfully supporting intrigue narrator to whom any trustful reader may unconditionally give credit to. Written with love and ambition the novel “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” relies on the commitment of the intelligent and educated reader who is ready to invest in a book with a universal moral message, a token of nourished for so long Europeanization of our prose for which pleaded yet in 1921 BOYAN PENEV, one of the most prominent Bulgarian critics.

With impeccably defended creative concept, a modern one as vision, printing workmanship and cinematographic structuring of different chapters, the book of FILIPOVA bravely takes off for its reader.
Excerpts from the critical analysis of BORISLAV GARDEV
(critic and writer)

“I did not trust contemporary Bulgarian literature until I read “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” of LUDMILA FILIPOVA”.
VANYA SHEKEROVA, Deputy- Chief Editor, Eva Magazine.

“The novel is far from being a scientific fiction but a result of a long author’s investigation. Everything FILIPOVA is writing about is a reality and therefore this punctuality of facts provides strength to her words. As if she is gifted with the privilege to foresee the future the author’s consecutive novel “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” leaves us with many questions”.
Newspaper “PARI” (Money), GERGANA MARINOVA

“In her newest novel the writer is ringing the alarm with literature means and concrete documentary facts for the hazards of uncontrolled trade with “glassy children”. The book of LUDMILA makes you stand on end with each following page. And this condition is provoked not only by the fate of the characters but by the particular scientific facts either. Many of the characters have real prototypes. The described story may occur any moment to anybody in the world.”
Newspaper “VSICHKO ZA ZHENATA” (All for woman), PEPA YORDANOVA

The third novel of the writer LUDMILA FILIPOVA is a dizzy downhill in an abyss but simultaneously in several such places. Modern technologies which highlight ethical problems and refer to eternal philosophic issues are shaking our daily round. No matter through what prism “GLASS BUTTERFLIES” should be read its layers are always more numerous than they seem at the beginning.
