Read in February, 2010

I had high hopes about this book as I had heard it was a lovely book of fairy tales, with strong mythological overtones, interwoven into one another, with characters appearing throughout the various tales.
And it is all that... but nothing more and so much less.
I am not sure what it is, maybe the overwrought style, or the fact that the plots of the tales were often weak, but I could not wait to finish the book!!!
Because of this book,I will be re-reading the Arabian Nights, and that is the one redeeming quality I can find in it!
