Angela Carter's collection of Fairytales is an unusual book. None of us at Book Group had waded through the full tome and I suspect it's best sampled in chunks rather than one monster read.

I find the tales from around the globe fascinating. Common archetypes and themes intrigue and gruesome story lines remind us that fairy tale endings are always of the Disney variety.

Definitely worth a read.
