My new favorite author! How playful with words Maguire is.
I appreciate the return of fairy tales told in the dark tradition, a la Grimm. Maguire's characters were deftly drawn, his setting historically rich, and his plot twists delightfully surprising.
All in all, a worthy re-tooling of a classic. Quite a pleasant read! Looking forward to reading the preceding volume, Wicked. But not right away. I'm starting The Glass Castle, a memoir YARN's Sunni loaned me. Later tonight I'm going to tuck in with a lemon bar, my new book, and the heating pad. Ahhh...
(In case you are keeping track, this is book #8 of 2010, and my page total now stands at 3,821. Only 21,179 to go!)
