The Good Fairies of New York

The Good Fairies of New York - Martin Millar, Neil Gaiman

This was, quite literally, an adult fairy tale!  Who knew there were fairies flying all over the world? ;)

 

This is not my usual cup of tea, but it kept me interested enough to finish it, but I guess my whole "suspend your attachment to reality" abilities aren't as strong as they are for others.  I mean really, sex-crazed, alcoholic fairies that fly across the ocean on "moonbows"? Ya, I know, lighten up!  Perhaps if the writing had been stronger, but I found it a tad crude.  Oh well, the story, which was kind of short if you consider there were only 236 pages of larger font, was okay while it lasted.  If I had the energy to really analyze the story, I'm sure I could find all kinds of parables. but I don't have the energy nor any sort of inclination!

 

If you like complete make-believe, you may well love this book.  If you don't, you may find it mildly entertaining, but not much more than that!
