The Essence Of The Storyessence of the story one that has been done in various guises many many many many times and although the writing was lyrical and evocative I didn t feel as if I experienced anything newIf you are writing was lyrical and evocative I didn t feel as if I experienced anything newIf you are to read this only for the evocative writing then I think you will like it what a beautiful short story it remembered me so much of an old fairy tales like Hans Christian Andersen s dark and hunting and will stay will you for a long time i would love too re read this in the autumn it has that feel too perfect for a october night s read Joanne Harris has written a powerfully magical and fantastical tale brimful of folklore that draws on the The Child Ballads It is beautifully written poetic and lyrical and a short read It reads like a dark fairytale An unnamed Every typical tale has a prince who saves the girl at the end of the story But what if the girl does not want to be saved what if the girl does not wait for the prince to be saved Ye My people are the wolves the hare the wild bees in the forest My people are the birch trees the roe deer and the otter My people are the travelling folk that travel on the campfire smoke and go into the fox The Wolf The Badger wolf the badger the weasel And I am not afraid A wonderful magical story told within the cycle of a year A tale of love betrayal revenge and rebirth Entrancing and timelessRecommended Generally I prefer my books to be less whimsical and involve at least some brain action so I believed this would not merit an outstanding grade The poetic treatment of this stupid.
