Beautifully written and very sensual. This is how fairy tales should be retold. Carter writes in such a lyrical and yet mature prose that it never sinks into sentimentality as other fairy tale re-tellings have. Here, horror and beauty blend seamlessly, creating a rich, dark world that in its skewed ways mirrors ours. I'm sure I haven't fully grasped the ideas Ms. Carter was trying to impress on me, but even if you don't understand a thing, the visual smorgasborg she weaves is certainly reason enough to read it. Every word she uses is weighted, carrying more than just its meaning, giving a richer, fuller image of the world she is creating. Among the stories, my favorites include: "The Bloody Chamber" -- a retelling of Blue Beard. The images of the story stayed with me long after I had finished the book that I drew a frontispiece for it. (see my photos) "Snow Child" -- a retelling of Snow White "The Lady of The House of Love" -- Sleeping beauty with a touch of goth; Carter paints a town asleep and a Vampire princess waiting for someone. A little sad but beautiful "Wolf-Alice" -- little red riding hood
