Recommended for: all people who love fairy tales

I got this book from the Read It & Reap project to review.

How to describe this book without starting to sound like an over-enthusiastic fan? Very difficult. Very diffcult indeed.

Just let me tell you this:

If you miss the sound of a storyteller painting a whole universe with the sound of their voice, this is the book for you.

If you yearn for something that is more acoustic dream than readable novel, this book is for you.

If you want to hear a story worthy of Sheherazade's beautiful gift, this book is for you.

If you love a fantasy novel that is more fairy tale than anything else, this book is for you.

And to make this book even better, let someone read it aloud to you or even better just let them tell you the story face to face. For this book, this fabulous fantastically dream-worthy book, is a pleasure to 'listen' to even if you are only reading it with your eyes alone. You will simply hear the storyteller's voice in your head.

Just like in Sheherazade's 1001 Nights...
