Do you like fairytales? Do you like retellings? Do you like those things combined with a healthy dose of feminist and Gothic undertones? News flash: this might be the collection for you. I especially enjoyed the title story, but every story had a refreshing take on the classics we love. Angela Carter's descriptions were lush and read like poetry. Although it's a small volume, I spent over a month reading it story-by-story just because every retelling was strongly written and offered a unique perspective to the stories I thought I knew.
