This is more of a 2.5, but I'm scewing more towards 2 for reasons of meh. As first attempts at classic fairy tale adventures go, it was decent, but if you are expecting the Spindlers to break any molds or challenge the accepted cliches of fairy tale ...more

The writng and story were better in the sequel, but still not a particularly satisfactory ending. And there was still a lot of sexism and gratuitous female objectification.

It is the rare book that I can say without hesitation is not as good as the movie adaptation, but Snowpiercer has joined the ranks of Blood and Chocolate. This book was less dramatic, less interesting, less engaging, and far more sexist than its film ...more

Caitlin Moran
“For throughout history, you can read the stories of women who - against all the odds - got being a woman right, but ended up being compromised, unhappy, hobbled or ruined, because all around them, society was still wrong. Show a girl a pioneering hero - Sylvia Plath, Dorothy Parker, Frida Kahlo, Cleopatra, Boudicca, Joan of Arc - and you also, more often than not, show a girl a woman who was eventually crushed.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Caitlin Moran
“You can tell whether some misogynistic societal pressure is being exerted on women by calmly enquiring, ‘And are the men doing this, as well?’ If they aren’t, chances are you’re dealing with what we strident feminists refer to as ‘some total fucking bullshit’.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Veronica Roth
“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”
Veronica Roth, Insurgent

Caitlin Moran
“I want a Zero Tolerance policy on All The Patriarchal Bullshit.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Stephen King
“He had come to believe that life was a series of ironic ambushes.”
Stephen King, Doctor Sleep
