This is a book filled with retold fairytales but it isn't a storybook for kids. Each of the fairytales is darker and grimer than a Brothers Grime version. From Snow White to the Wizard of Oz, this book blends old classics and gives them a new twist - or perhaps I should say "twisted" version.
I really enjoyed it though. It was never quite what I expected and that was fun.
John Connolly did a beautiful job of weaving tales together into one story. If you like a mystery with a little fantasy, I would definitely recommend this but only if you are over 14 and probably more like 20.
If you've read it, I'd love to hear what you thought.
