I have never wanted to see the film because I think it's the type of film that would unsettle me too much with its dark imagery and yet as soon as I heard it was to be adapted and expanded upon for a novel I knew I wanted to read it It's strange how I will read books that have darker themes but won't watch filmsI think it's because when I read I don't necessarily clearly visualise the events of the book in my mind's eye but instead I experience these events in a much abstract manner ANYWHOThe book I did really like it It was very much an ode to Grimm style fairytales and the darker side of some of my favourite films from the 80s Labyrinth Return to Oz Neverending Story At times it felt almost middle grade but then at times it was 100% adult and I liked that juxtaposition of the two It really calls to mind those same feelings I had as a child when I listened to ghost stories or got creeped out by monsters etc etc Seeing as it was fairytale esue the characters were all a bit on the stereotypical side but I don't think I would have liked them to be otherwise I particularly liked how the book split itself between the folklore style stories of how the underworld influenced ancient times and the historical fiction narrative of civil war ravaged Spain The book was also beautifully illustrated throughout which added to its charm I definitely enjoyed this but my rating is somewhere around the 35 mark as I have preferred other fairytale style adult books a lot John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things Dale Bailey's In the Night Wood For reviews and book related chat check out my blog
