" There wasn't anything new about this fairy story, and I reached the end and went "That's it? Really no bigger payoff than this?" There were also some narrative tics that were annoying, probably deliberately so, though I'm not clear to what purpose. It's not actively bad; it's just not good. If you're stuck in a snowbound cabin, and your reading choices are this and *Billy Budd*, I'd recommend this without hesitation. Then again, I'd probably recommend the Code of Federal Regulations rather than *Billy Budd*. "
