Fantasy. 4 stars
That was glorious. Glorious!
It was like Matilda. Coraline. Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman for a different audience.
It was short. About 160 pages. And could be read in about an hour. I’m not going to give you a plot synopsis. I didn’t read one before I read the book, and it wouldn’t matter anyway.
When you want to stretch your reading muscles – when you want light and sweet yet dark and awful – when you want OTHER then give this a try. It’s remarkable, and yet so very easy to read.
