This book drove me crazy. I would just get into the characters and plot when the author would switch to a different storyline. So then you are perplexed to read it accordingly or skip to the chapter of the characters you like. However, each plot slowly relates to the other, so you just can't.

It really is such an original book with realistic tones from the past to the distant future. Plus the author added themes and character complexity.

The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy
The True Story of Hansel and Gretel

First of all this book is fascinating in regards to a fairy tale turned into a reality. Second it also is a well-written book in a way that evokes the emotions on what it was like to live in Poland with the Nazis cruetly. Third throughout the novel nature is depicted in such a way that you almost hear the leaves under your feet and the distinct smell of the forest.
