A truly fabulous review of The Girl with No Hands and Other Tales* by guest reviewer Lyndon Riggall on Angela Meyer’s LiteraryMinded blog (she who is Queen of the Bloggeist). Thus, I do snoopy dance.
For those of you who will read The Girl With No Hands I will not spoil the conclusion of the first story, but just like The Bloody Chamber, it opens with a reimagining of the famous tale Bluebeard. And you know what? It was brilliant. I was stunned by the story’s twist – really, truly, I had been tricked by my own pre-conceptions, and the tale was stronger because of it. Story after story continued to be excellent, and while perhaps ‘The Chrysanthemum Bride’ was my favourite, it’s hard to say because I was completely hooked by many others, not least of all the wonderfully dark adventure of romance with a zombie in ‘The Dead Ones Don’t Hurt You’.
Ze rest is here.
* I must have shorter titles for my next books.
