Switching from 3rd to 1st person with the same character adds to the odd, surreal thinking behind this novella. Eithnie is an artist, which automatically means she¿ll be a little odd, so this book is told from a strange perspective. The story itself is strange, containing tree spirits and a book that so overwhelms the human mind that it takes a great amount of strength to break free from it. It doesn¿t have a very good conclusion, but it does leave you with a sense of something surreal that is almost as hard to break away from as the book Eithnie encounters. It has the characteristic surrealism of Charles de Lint and a wonderful spirit of nature. Fantasy lovers (and tree lovers) will love this book.

wonderful modern fairy tale.
I though it was great little modern tale of fairies and the environment without being overly preachy. It was short and easy to read, and it had a simple premise of a plot with a couple of twists in there. The ending was not I expected but it was a good ending.Was this review helpful?
