I was astounded at how disappointed I was. I enjoyed the first story, and everything seemed to slide downhill from there, with the exception of The Faery Bag. The writing was good, and certain snide references (I'm quoting loosely) like "it was a book about a girl who falls in love with a vampire, and the writing was kind of bad, but I kind of liked it" were awesome. I just disliked the way that most of the stories ended without concrete endings. I don't like dreamy endings that could go either way. I love knowing who got married and had a billion kids and died, so I just couldn't love the book as much as I wanted to. My favorite was probably the Faery Bag, though I wanted a concrete ending, and my least favorite was the one about Fox and her adventures.
