Raven Girl

Raven Girl - Audrey Niffenegger In Raven Girl, Niffenegger combines the modern magic of medicine and technology with the more traditional elements of princes, transformation, and unlikely lovers to create an wonderfully unique Gothic fairytale. It's quick read is supplemented by Niffenegger's own illustrations which enhance the story and bewitch the reader.

There were only a few things that I disliked about this story: the ending was quite abrupt, some details were glossed over, and the book was quite short (80 pages total, and not even all of the pages contained words). However these can be chalked up to the fact that the story is a fairytale, where such practices are commonplace.

I rather enjoyed the dark journey that this story took me on. It's not for everyone, but if you're willing to embrace your inner child and suspend your disbelief for about half an hour, I recommend that you give Raven Girl a try.
