Fairly dry stuff, considering the subject matter
on April 10, 2014
The Unicorn is an oldie, and obviously a classic for many fans of unicorn lore. I found it to be fairly dry. It reads like a series of research thesis papers strung together, while I was hoping for something more in the "infotainment" category. I bought it for my daughter who loves unicorns, but this is definitely not for kids. I don't even think today's teens would enjoy it all that much. The images are interesting, but I can't say I was too impressed. Considering the high ratings, I was disappointed by the book. Maybe this was an awesome book at one time, but I can't help feeling that a modern treatment would do a much better job.
