I'm giving this five stars because it takes some conceptual leaps that make it a more interesting read than most fantasy novels. First, I loved the idea of wrinkledness, not just as metaphor but as a state of mind. The first part, when Linny goes off ...more

I read this right after watching the PBS two-part series on Walt Disney. It was interesting to get an insider's take on the famous man and the empire he spawned; Peet even includes some cartoons he did of Disney. His sense of humor, humility, and cle ...more

Karen Russell has real knack for coming up with intriguingly bizarre story ideas and making them work. She also knows how to turn a phrase, imbuing them with multiple meanings in a delightful fashion. Her voice is unrepentingly literary, which works ...more
