I really enjoy modern day fairy tales, and this book was no exception. It was delightfully fun from start to finish. If you're looking for an enjoyable story that's able to help you fend off reality for a while then I would recommend this one. I thought it was terrific.
Mountain of Love and Danger is a modern day fairytale of Jack and the Beanstalk, with cell phones and all. And yes! There is definitely a giant beanstalk, which Jack climbs. This beanstalk does not reach into the heavens as the fairy tale. It reaches to the top of a tall rocky dangerous cliff. There is no other way to get to the top, other than the beanstalk or by helicopter. What is at the top of the cliff? A shack where the giant resides! Why does Jack want to climb the beanstalk? To save his beloved, whom the giant had captured. There would be no other reason to put his life in danger but to save someone he dearly loves. This story is fast paced and delightful. From chapter one to the last chapter there is plenty of suspense as you watch Jack try to figure out where his girlfriend has been taken. This story was written for young adults to appreciate. As an adult, I totally enjoyed it.
