really liked it
bookshelves: adult-fiction, fantasy, teen-fiction
Read in September, 2009

a dark, disturbing and occasionally comic tale of a boy whose fractured family leads him away from his own world and into the world of stories. throughout his journeys, we are introduced to a variety of characters that are slightly familiar, including a woodsman, a gay knight and, a character ubiquitous throughout traditional folklore, the trickster. this is book about power, nightmares, fairy tales, and ultimately, the loss of innocence. a brilliantly crafted tome.
