I read this book as it was recommended on some list somewhere. That and I really liked the cover. I am not much for fairy tale books. Yet, the book read more like a contemporary novel. For a good portion of the book the only fairy tale reference was a book that was written by Alice's grandmother.
The story took a bit to get to the point, but I enjoyed the journey there. I may have enjoyed more then the fairy tale aspect. That part was a bit of a letdown. The book was Gothic, but nothing too dark - I am a wuss so this worked in the books favor for me.
I did enjoy the more character driven aspect of the story, again it was more contemporary than fairy tale. Overall, I found this book enjoyable but not a masterpiece.
