I didn't love this book as much as [b:The Bloody Chamber|49011|The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories|Angela Carter|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348808640s/49011.jpg|47950], but once again, Angela Carter amazes me. Her use of language is simply stunning. I grew to love these characters, especially Finn. The story is dark, disturbing, beautiful and tragic. It is a wonderful adult fairy tale seen through the eyes of adolescence. The only reason I didn't give this book a full five stars was because of the ending. I felt horribly deprived at the finishing of this book. I wanted to know what happened to these characters. But I can forgive Angela. She maintains her spot as number one on my favorite author list.
