this version of east of the sun & west of the moon was a pleasant read.

pika, lass or whatever you might call her, lacked substance, meaning she wasn't a fleshed out character. all of jessica day george's books seem to have this particular problem. the author draws a strict line between evil vs. good, so the reader makes no mistake as to categorize who's the hero and who's the villain. which is a shame.

there is more than just one side to a person than that! i'm disappointed once again by george's lack of layered characters ...

if you want to read a modern and more importantly better version of this fairy tale. you should try reading ice by sarah beth durst!
