Spinning Thorns by Anna Sheehan

Spinning Thorns

A Beautiful reimagining of the tale of Rumpelstiltskin, a bit dark but the atmosphere of the book was really palpable. I love it that here, Rumpelstiltskin is dealt with as a complex many-layered character
who is just like anybody dealing and adjusting to the hard blows dealt with him by Life(instead of dismissing him as a bad guy in other such retellings).
The character of Will is strongly drawn and she comes out as an unusually relatable heroine full of spunk and wit.I don’t have any positive comment on Ferdinand.He seems veiled and far-off from the novel.
Sparkly, imaginative and heartbreaking, this novel drew me in with an intensity I haven’t encountered for long in this genre.
