Product Description

About the Author

Seanan McGuire was born and raised in Northern California, where she has lived for the majority of her life. She spends most of her time writing or watching television, but also draws a semi-autobiographical comic strip and has released several albums of filk music (science fiction and fantasy themed folk music). To relax, Seanan enjoys travel, and frequents haunted corn mazes, aquariums with good octopus habitats, and Disney Parks. Seanan is remarkably good at finding reptiles and amphibians wherever she goes, sometimes to the dismay of the people she happens to be traveling with. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I bought Indexing when browsing offers on Amazon, and am glad I did. Like the Jasper Fforde this deals with metafiction - memes from fairy stories as incursions into our "reality" and the team of people who deal with them. High concept material written as a police procedural, and great fun - I've already spotted some fan fiction using the characters (imitation being the sincerest form of flattery). If you like Jim Butcher's books, it's hard to see why you wouldn't like, or even prefer, this. An enjoyable escapist read, but dealing with some real world issues in a sensitive and positive manner. Good stuff. I guess Seanan McGuire won't get rich on my 99p, but I will be buying the rest of her books.

I read somewhere that this was written using Amazona installments feature and it reads that way. It began really promising, with a great idea, but somewhere hal;f was through it was as if the author realised there need to be a plot as well as a premis and panicked. Its a shame really.

I am massively conflicted by this.
I loved the novel concept behind this story and a lot of the execution was done well, but...

I can't help feeling that this was actually let down by being a Kindle Serial Novel. This is the first of it's kind that I've read, and unfortunately, it's not made me inclined to try another one. I got this novel as a complete download, not serialized, so I don't know if this is an issue with the serialization, or with how the author chose to treat it, but the repetition in each chapter was just distracting. We do not need to be reintroduced to the characters every time, nor does the concept of the Index need to be repeated with each new case. Even if there was a significant time lapse between chapter publication (I do not know and I don't want to malign unfairly) the reader is not going to have a) that bad a memory or b) the inability to go back and reread previous chapters before embarking upon the latest.

Here's a confession - I used to read fanfiction. Sometimes, due to the authors' other commitments (usually school) there would be anything up to six weeks between chapter uploads. That didn't mean that a complete recap of the characters/plot was necessary when they finally decided to update - the story just continued where they had left off. So I'm confused as to why an established author found it necessary to do what amateur fanfic writers already know puts off a reader?

Having said that - it got better. Once the main story got going (around Chapter 4) where there was a recap it was done mostly as an expansion of the character, rather than the same details rehashed (there were still some elements of this, but often done as a character explaining to a new character in story, so easier to swallow).

Seanan McGuire is pretty much the best new author I've come across. She's witty with great one-liners and characters who blow life's cobwebs away. Above all else, though, she's imaginative. Her created worlds are wildly varied. If you like fantasy, this is the literary equivalent of death by chocolate.

A thoroughly enjoyable read, I'm looking forward to the next book.

Taking a 'simple' premise, the author includes a lot of black humour, and manages to make the characters stand out from their tropes to some extent - They are engaging, and I'm looking forward to meeting them again.

Liked the book, if you are a fan of programs like Grimm and Once upon a Time, you will get this instantly. I enjoyed the way it was written, like case notes, although I see this hasn't engaged some of the other reviewers. This made it easy to pick up, read bit, and put down. There was a thread running through it. I will be looking for the next book, which I believe is due soon ish?

I can already see that this review is not going to be a popular one - but here goes anyway!

I read this as a 'whole' book not as a serial, so perhaps this is why I found it so unlikeable. Each chapter contained most of the same information, so that made the book rather repetitive.

It was unusual in that almost all of the characters are unlikable, the story was inconsistent and overly drawn out. The mystery aspect might have played better, in my opinion, had the conundrum showed up earlier in the book -it would have give the reader a chance to build up a little more excitement. The conclusion was interesting, howev er the rest of the book for me was dull and most of the times confusing.

If you do not know your Grimm's Fairy Tales very well or even the Disney versions, you may be very lost during most of this book.

Some may say that it takes a while for this novel to get off of the ground, and they love it - but I am of the thought that if I have to almost force myself to reach the half-way mark, then the author may not be doing their job very well.

I adore the October Daye books immensely and am almost always engrossed and enraptured by them - unfortunately for me, this was one experiment that didn't work out as well as I had hoped.

I came to this series with no preconceptions and found it to be an absolute gem of a novel (or collection of episodes really). A real life Snow White, Sleeping Beauties, Wicked Stepsisters? All fairy tales are real and there is an alternative police force to hunt them down. Really inventive and really excellent.
Now normally in my reviews I comment now on what I didn't like...but I won't here as I believe that the pitch was pretty much perfect for the subject matter.
