A Quirky, Old-fashioned Delight
The Old Country is a short and sweet fairy tail at its heart, but the exceptional writing, interesting twists, and social commentary make it a standout. The writing style is interestingly childish despite being written in 3rd person, yet is never lacking in perceptiveness and also has the advantage of being oddly poetic. In fact, I'd have to say that the writing is my favorite part of this, mostly due to the excellent word choice. Another highlight is the twist ending, which while not very difficult to predict, still packs a punch. Similarly, the rather transparent commentary on the futility of war is still effective and a worthwhile addition. Overall, The Old Country may be too simplistic for some, but I found it a refreshing read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
