I think everyone should read this novel. It's the dark tale of a jealous boy's childhood mixed with re-tellings of fairy stories with dark twists. Since we've all experienced these classic tales, everyone should darken their perspective just a little through this book.

I really enjoyed this. It was far more dark and twisted than I imagined from the back cover, but it was very touching.

His mother was buried on a January morning. The ground was hard, and all the mourners wore gloves and overcoats. The coffin looked two short when they lowered it into the dirt. His mother had always seemed tall in life. Death had made her small.
