Spindle’s End – review

Spindle's EndSpindle’s End by Robin McKinley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The surprising thing about this book is that about 75% of it involves the 20 years of ordinary life the princess spends in hiding. While the fear of what is pending looms, the story is mostly about her mundane life, and yet McKinley easily makes this most interesting with fantastic descriptive talents that never focus on anything that does not directly relate to that which is happening at the moment. Transitions from the past and the present are smooth and compelling. Overall, a brilliant interpretation of the Sleeping Beauty tale.
