Book Review: Far Far Away

Far Far AwayFar Far Away by Tom McNeal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great read if you like fairytales and have the patience to get into the story. The narrator, the ghost of Jacob Grimm, can be a bit annoying and rambling especially in the first few chapters but soon the story breezes along. There are so many unanswered questions that you just have to keep reading. I would recommend this for older tweens and teens—especially fans of the Sisters Grimm series or the tv show Once Upon a Time. It does get dark and twisted and there is some kissing so it may not be appropriate for everyone. Adults will find themselves sneaking over to check this out as well.

I received this as a galley from NetGalley.

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.

A Tale Dark and Grimm

You can read it…if all your favorite fairytale tv shows are taking a break and you need a fix.

Perfect…audio book, especially for boys—it’s gruesome.

For…ages 8 and up.
