This short novel, set after the events of The Book of Deacon, follows the blessed and cursed life of Jade Rinton. Stripped of her family and kept in a tall tower by a fierce dragon due to the scheming of a mysterious stranger, Jade seems to be living in a twisted fairy tale. She soon learns, though, that fate has its own ideas of who should play each part, and that family is where you find it.

    " Took a bit to get through it, but her writing is always so wonderful, worth the read (and great for brushing up on mythology) "

    " It was alright. I felt it was a little crass at times and I think I may have totally missed the point because a lot of it made very little sense to me. But it was a quick read. "

    " A really interesting one - given to me by a friend who cared about my emotional well-being, I think it was intended, in a way, as an instruction manual. The 'moral' is in the final section, an autobiographical aside, almost, by Winterson, a sort of post script which puts the whole tale into perspective. In this book's raison d'etre, as a modern rewriting of an ancient myth, the overall theme is the story of Atlas shouldering the weight of the world. As for the conclusion: why not just put it down? At least the possibility of putting it down has to be there, the carrying of the weight needs to be a choice... anyway interesting and valuable thoughts. As for the book itself - I'm not sure - I think it may need a second read for me to decide whether or not the writing style is irretrievably jarring. It's possible that it may be. I still would like to read some more Winterson though (I have not read any others, so must look for a copy of Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit). "

    " Winterson is a master at telling stories, and retelling them and retelling them. I cannot recommend this one high enough- it's a retelling of Atlas, and his relationship (such as there is) with Heracles. FANTASTIC. "
