Book Review – Gretel: A Fairytale Retold by Niamh Murphy

First published, 2013

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

What a great story! This was my first introduction to Niamh Murphy’s writing, and I loved it. The story is a lesbian spin on Hansel and Gretel and it does not disappoint. Wonderful storytelling with rich imagery and sympathetic characters, I was sorry to reach the end of it.

There are one or two rather adult passages, which I’m only throwing in to this review in case my godmother is reading, but it’s a cracking tale, beautifully told.
