    " It was a great book, at most time it seemed sort of childish because its mostly about folktale and fairytale but it actually has a great plot in my opinion when you read it, its like the twist of fairy tales into another dimension. For one reading strategy that I used to help me finish this book was to Inferring. By inferring I could tell how each scene, or how each character would have been like just through little description it gave me, enough information that I needed to know. I would recommend this book to people who like fiction and to easy read :) "

    " This had a lot of similarities to the Fables graphic novel series, which I guess shouldn't be surprising considering the fairy-tale/fable/legend background material. There are only so many ways to put Snow White, Shere Khan, and the Big Bad Wolf together into one community and still sound original. "

    " This series appears to be one where you need to read the books in order...there's a 'to be continued' at the end of the first two. "
