What People are Saying About This

Ian McEwan

"She writes a prose that blends itself to magnificent set pieces of factidious sensuality...dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses the unruly unconscious, epic journeys and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations."

This book was an interesting look at Fairy Tales and how the basic storyline can be altered. I liked comparing Carter's variations with the originals.
