Wonderful story and characters! I love the themes explored in this book, but it's never heavy handed. Good narration, too. I'm looking forward to the other two books in this series.
I loved the darkness and rich innocence of this created world. The characters and culture presented are a mix of old village life, fairy tale, and ... sexual perversion and cruelty. This story has incest, rape, and retaliatory sodomy. I can't figure out how it wound up in Audible Kids! It's a very well told tale--original, beautiful, and powerful--but it's not for kids.
Nasty characters doing and saying ugly, disjointed things. I couldn't get away from these characters and this story fast enough! I have very eclectic taste in audiobooks, but I couldn't get past the first half hour of this one.
The other reviewer who wanted his money back was right. This was on sale, but it is no bargain! I want my $9.95 back, too . . . .
