The story uses Russian fairy tales as a launch point, but in saying that there is nothing cosy here. The telling is confident enough to draw you along some quite bizarre routes without over explaining or over describing, which in the main keeps the plot moving at a pace, and I felt a kind of recognition of characters which must be due to the use of some universal archetypes. Towards the end I felt the story loses a little of the direction, but nonetheless it held up a a very thought provoking book. There are some beautiful pieces of writing in this book, for these alone it is well worth the money.
