Say, have you ever read Snow White and thought it was too tame? Well, apparently Neil Gaiman did. And so he gave it a full Game of Thrones style makeover.
Oodles of sex, blood and nudity – check.
Naked women shame-dragged through public streets – check.
Incest – check.
Sexual objectification of minors – check.
And on and on it goes…a dash of necrophilia there, a smatter of murder there.
The thing is Gaiman is one of those organic storytellers who can spin any yarn into gold. And the art in this book is absolutely stunning and perfectly suited to the story. The book is slim and makes for a quick and easy read. There’s a beauty to it, but it’s also hugely, highly disturbing. Especially, the more you think about it.
So let’s just say it was…interesting and visually gorgeous and might not for everyone.
Me, I’m a fan of fairy tales dark as night (which is when you’re supposed to be telling them anyway), so for me this was kind of fun.
