it was amazing
bookshelves: all-time-favorites

I have read a variety of versions of the story of "The Giant Who Had No Heart In His Body" and this one was, by far, my favorite. Lackey creates a fairy tale Russian world full of delightful humor, beautiful and yet never over done details, and with a few good plot twists for good measure. Lackey's story stays true to the fairy tale elements it embodies with out becoming overly cliches or predictable. I found the characters loveable, the setting descriptive enough that I could envision it, and a plot that moved a fast pace that kept me interested. It is a great addition to the collection of other fairy tales Lackey has written. * Highly Recommend*
