The Grimm Legacy

The Grimm Legacy - Polly Shulman 2.5 / 5.0

The concept of a library that lends out objects rather than books is very fun, and it makes a very good setting for any number of stories. Adding in the fairy tale elements just makes it more intriguing.

When it comes to characterisation, however, this novel falls rather flat. None of the characters really seem to have much depth, even Elizabeth as the narrator. Additionally, several things are just quickly glossed over in the telling, and a number of things got solved too quickly, in my point of view.

Still, it's a quick, fun read. And a good way to spend an afternoon.
