This book contains thirteen different retellings of well known fairy tales. I found the book to be very well written, although at times I felt that some stories were left unfinished. Donoghue links one tale to the next in a unique way but at times it took away from the story and does not always make sense. The characters in her stories, however, had much more depth than those in the originals.
