5.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful 21 ottobre 2012
Di Dena - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Catherynne M. Valente is one of my favorite authors. This is the second book of hers that I have read and I felt much the same about this one as I did the first. It was a delightful change from the usual formulaic plot and bland characters employed in most contemporary novels.

Mallow, Mabry, the Winds, and Fairyland are all so unique and different from anything else that it is impossible to forget this story. I love the way nothing is impossible in Fairyland. Cities are literally alive, the Winds ride wild Cats, and Mallow travels to the city with a charming stranger in a carriageless horse.

Stories like Valente's Fairyland books don't come along very often. She has come up with a truly original and unique fairytale that individuals of all ages can enjoy. I really enjoy the bits of philosophical wisdom that she imparts upon her readers throughout the story. These are my favorite quotes from the book:

"I have all the books I could need, and what more could I need than books?"

"Temptation likes best those who think they have a natural immunity, for it may laugh all the harder when they succumb."

5.0 su 5 stelle a Enchanting and wonderful Prequel 28 giugno 2012

I have to say I enjoyed this prequel more than I expected, Very short but action packed. We don't see our main protagonist that is is ''The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland''. But people who enjoyed that book will surly enjoy this prequel and I have to say it was good to see a few familiar faces in this book. By all means this book is worth the 99 cents

I read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland... first, so I knew, who Mallow was. I liked it. Interesting details from the story of the kingdom, characters - and the well known great Valente style and text.

4.0 su 5 stelle Pretty and fantastical, but hard to connect 30 aprile 2014
Di M. Brandon Bastian - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
A freebie short story on tor.com! I'm a bit torn on this one. For one, the prose is wonderful and the attention to detail splendid. There were phrases and sentences and paragraphs that enchanted me and carried me away to another world. Indeed, there was a significant otherworldliness to the story. And the series with which it shares a universe has been on my to-read list for a while now.

On the other hand, I never really connected with Mallow or the other characters. I understood the tension in the story, but didn't really feel a part of it. And I finished the story mostly feeling as though I was missing something that other people understood. I suppose I'll chalk it up to not being familiar with the novels set in the same place, and hope that all will be clearer and more connected once I read them.
