My faintly ridiculous (dare I say quixotic?) project to read three hundred and sixty-five novels in a single year. Somehow I managed it, and am now busy catching up with the blogging side.
I’m not really sure what to say about the Just So Stories. They’re charmingly told, and very different from, e.g., Plain Tales from the Hills. They have that distinct fairy-tale ring to them. Elizabeth Kay’s Divide books are enjoyable and imaginative, although I must admit that my ability to enjoy them this time around was … More 264–284: Just So Stories; the Divide trilogy; The Holiday Round; The Prisoner of Zenda; The Rules of Engagement; Ranger’s Apprentice; The Man With Two Left Feet, and Other Stories; and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Other Tales of Terror
