Love love love it. Carter's language is rich and gorgeous and luxuriant, and her characters are always interesting and sometimes repellant in an engrossing way. Carter's use of taboos can be squicky and it's quite strange to find them in tales drawn from traditional fairy stories, but it's fascinating how she takes those traditional tales and reworks them into modern feminist stories with magical elements.
