My First Joyce.,
This review is from: Some Kind of Fairy Tale: A Novel (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)I have been wanting to read Joyce for quite some time, so I was happy to have the opportunity to read this book. If In the Woods had gone a different direction, it could have been this book. It has that "English country enchanted woods" feel that always makes for a good story.
I feel like going into this book, you should know as little about it as possible, so I won't go into detail about the story.
The writing, storytelling and characters were all solid. One character I found particularly fun. The novel had a very good level of suspense which kept me engaged all the way through. I read most of it in a day.
There were a couple of choices the author made that I didn't necessarily love, and some conveniences which I felt dropped the quality a bit.
I would definitely recommend this book and would read more by this author.
