it was ok
bookshelves: 2013, fairy-tale, january-2013

I finished it, but I'm not sure I really enjoyed it. I'm trying to read a lot of fairy tale retellings, and I was fascinated by this one, but it really ended up being something I just slogged through to see where the author actually went with it.

The style was very off-putting, very distant, I couldn't get a very good read on any of the characters -- most of them didn't even have names! I was looking for the ways that she incorporated the different fairy tales, and that was interesting, but I when I was finished, I was glad to be done.
