Angela Carter's Book of Fairy Tales
on 31 January 2006
This collection of fairy tales compiled by Angela Carter is a truly wonderous feast for the imagination. With not a glittering fairy in sight, this collection is not for the faint hearted. Jealous mothers, evil old hags, beautiful maidens and enough handsome princes to satisfy even the most ardent fairy tale enthusiasts dream. I completely lost myself in these stories, escaping into a world with a heady mix of adventure, passion and magic. After reading one story, I found that I could simply not stop myself from greedily gorging on another. A book I shall always treasure and one I shall never forget.
