really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy-sci-fi

Sorry it's over. Snow was definitely my favorite character. But her end was quite believable and managed to seem as if it could have been prophesied from the beginning. Didn't like Gerta much. The demon seemed like a great metaphor for one of those traumatic events that can tip someone over from a good person with a bad background into schizophrenia or alcoholism - abused little girl Snow White wants to be good for a long time but eventually falls to the dark side and becomes the Snow Queen. These books seem fluffy, but they really aren't. They just look that way! There's a lot of psychology and even political philosophy in there if you feel like noticing it. Otherwise just enjoy the fun.
