This book only took approximately half an hour to read but was enjoyable nonetheless. All three stories were exceptionally well written with a lovely blend of fantasy and realism. The imagery in all the stories was very vivid and it was easy to visualize the different settings. All the stories had an element of poignancy and they all seemed to describe the bittersweetness of love and that in life, there is no gain without loss. These stories were not what I think of when I think about fairy tales, but I enjoyed reading them and I appreciated their originality. If asked if I would recommend this book, I would say "yes."
