Really loved the Bloody Chamber and the weird Beauty and the Beast version, not in love with some of the others. Such creepy story telling, but it all feels so real. There's a warmth to the language that feels very conversational.

I rate this a 5 despite feeling strangely distant from it. Weird! But look at those individual ratings; how could I not? Very pretty writing, a certain ranging loose style at times that may not be to everyone's tastes.

DNF @ 35% - Coming back to this one. Intense, in a good way.
