MY THOUGHTS and OPINION
I was amazed when I requested to review this book because I am not an avid reader to be quite honest with you. Therefore, I felt not being one, this book should and will get a very honest opinion. In reading the brief synopsis of this book it was about all the things that I knew would interest me, and keep me awake. I have been interested in fairy tales and mythology all my life, but this book was different. I started to read the first story, and I have to admit it started out a bit slow, but then it picked up with a different type of power the girl had. It was the same way with the second story relating from the very beginning. As I read further the stories got more and more interesting, and even exciting at times. The stories became more of a place that I could go to, and forget about reality, and hide within the realm of the author’s fantasy. Many of the authors had a way to pull you in with their emotional thoughts, and heartwarming scenes, but yet keep you on the edge of your chair. At times they were a bit complex, but as you read on you were back in a comfort zone.
This book was highly entertaining in a sense that you could actually feel like you were at the movies. The authors definitely has a way with words to hold your interest, and I hated to put the book down when I had to stop for a moment for the real world’s chores. Many a time I thought oh this might happen next or that was going to happen next, and I was always wrong. What a vivid imaginations of a parallel universes or other places of time, and space of experience of literature. Many times I was in awe at such twists & turns in the stories, and never would’ve thought it would lead to such a fabulous endings. Did you ever read a book or see a movie that you said, “Oh, it should have ended this way or that”. Not these stories!
The pictures in the book only added to the indebtedness of the stories. Nothing elaborate to take away from the book itself. They were a perfect addition.
