Fairy Tale is on my list of want to reads. I just started a book recommended by Stephan King, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. In the cover blurb he writes:I just started Billy Summers, and am liking it a lot. My husband, meanwhile, is reading Fairy Tale. Completely by accident, we both downloaded books by Stephen King.
"I flat out loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. I close the book with that regret readers feel only after experiencing the best stories. It's over, you think, and I won't read another one this good for a long, long time....Wonderful, mysterious, long and satisfying: readers who pick up this novel are going to enter a richer world. I envy them the trip. I don't reread many books because life is too short. I will be rereading this one. "
I don't know what made me pick this book off the shelf at Goodwill but after reading King's blurb I thought for a bit less than $3.00 I'd give it a try.
