    Great Fairy Tale!

    I am a big Gregory Maguire fan, and have enjoyed being challenged by his words, deep concepts, and calls to my imaging abilities. A few of his fanciful tales have annoyed me, but hearing about this book on NPR excited me. and i was not disappointed in any way. This Russia-based tale was completely satisfying from start to finish. Enough said!! Read if!*

    Another Maguire Masterpiece (4.5/5)

    I am a big fan of most things Gregory Maguire and this is no exception. I always have to approach his books with patience, expectation and the ability to be open to surprises. As with his other books, this does not start or end the way I think it will. It always takes me a little longer to get into his books; a slow but deliberate appreciation for the tale he is weaving as I read along. But before you know it, you're hooked. He masterfully weaves together numerous characters and plots that appear to be disjointed or unrelated, sometimes for most of the book, and then they somehow come together in the most unexpected and satisfying of ways. I love (what little I know of) Russian folklore and loved his interpretation of Baba Yaga as cheeky and mischievous; rude and brutal at first glance but with a depth of heart under all her sarcasm. This was such a pleasure to read and as usual, I eagerly await his next brilliant and imaginative interpretation of another fable or folktale.

    Don't worry it picks up.

    I bought this book without knowing what it's about - I'll admit I just liked the cover and the title. The first couple of chapters were a bit draggy - was thinking I might not finish it. But then it started to pick up - and then Baba Yaga! I've loved her since I was a child. This was not the traditional Baba Yaga but I like to think that's how she would be if you got to hang out with her. Anywho the characters were fun,everything tied together and the end was just what I wanted

    Rather Disappointing

    I approached this book with high hopes. Even though I was never a Gregory Maguire fan, I hoped that the promise of a Russian fairy tale would endear me to it. Unfortunately, this turned out to not be the book for me. Maguire's prose was often distancing, the narrative device often interrupted to progression of the story, and he could veer into the realms of preaching at points. The plot also hinged on a rather flimsy and difficult to believe coincidence. Story threads were dropped without explanation, while others developed in the final chapters that had nothing to do with the rest of the book. It was also disappointing as it tried to both be set in the historical past, as well as a fairy tale realm, and therefore achieved neither. However, I did find some of the characters endearing and ideas interesting. It was just a shame it did not end up meeting my standards. If you liked the idea of Baba Yaga dealing with children, I suggest the short story "Baba Iaga and the Pelican Child" by Joy Williams in the adult fantasy anthology "My Mother Killed Me, My Father Ate Me."
