Yes, it’s time for Any One Book again. I’ve been looking forward to this one because I haven’t read much in a while and It will be good to start again.
Now, I don’t actually own this book yet, but I’m about to order it from Amazon. It’s called Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales which is bound to be amazing. For English in college we had to study another one of her books called The Bloody Chamber and I quickly learnt that fairy tales in Angela Carter’s world aren’t what we grew up with.
In fact she takes fairy tales back to what they used to be, gruesome, bloody and highly insane. After one year of studying it I could never look at Beauty and the Beast, Little Red Riding Hood or Puss in Boots the same again.
Her mind was a confusing but wonderous place and I’m fully looking forward to getting lost in it again and feel free to get lost with me.
