    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBookI've given a lot of thought to this review how to begin how to describe this story how to explain my utter adoration for it and most importantly what words I might use to successfully make everyone read this book right nowAs you can probably imagine I've come up rather short on all counts How do you talk about a book which seems to either redefine or cause to shrivel all the normal descriptors one attaches to works of fiction? I mean strictly speaking you'd have to call this an epic fantasy I suppose Wait You didn't let me finish Because that's not it not really I mean it's not really just epic because it actually seems to encompass the whole damn world to cover all of time kind of And it's of an occult novel than a fantasy novel if anything I guess I mean it's a real story set in real life New York partly upstate and partly in our big bad city It just sort of so happens that well everyone in the story is part of the Tale which only some of them can understan

    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBookThis book astounded me Not in a good way I expected to like Little Big quite a bit from what I'd heard about it But like the Drinkwater house it looks smaller on the outside than it feels from inside Not in a good way I mean the book feels like it's a thousand pagesSome people like it as you can tell by other reviews the language is often quite clever it ends on a semi strong note and it plays with myth in som

    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBookThis will be an easy review for a glorious book of Fae story and four generations of an interesting familyTo say it's lyrical misses the point of the theme that the deeper you look the bigger it gets It's true for this novel as it is true for any one of us A surface glance might get you caught in a fae's trap such as a kingfisher for a gas station but when you get caught in the web of love ch

    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBookI'm someone who always finishes a book but this one was impossible Could the author have made the female characters apathetic passive dull flat and stereotypical?

    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBook Little Big is the greatest book I have ever read It is living magic in text form and it has a truly transformative effect on the reader I understand that it meanders a bit in the middle section and goes off on a strange ish quasi political tangent toward the end but everything is purposeful and comes together to achieve a singular effect literally every single sentence is essential and purposeful to the grand narrative When I finish

    Little Big ePUB ´ Mass Market Paperback little download, Little Big eBookI tried to read this but just couldn't slog my way through it The jacket copy sounded really intriguing but I didn't get halfway through it The biggest problem I had with this book was that I felt tried far too hard to be Airy and Phantasmagorical and Mystically Vague and forgot that a plot was actually necessary It wanders and doesn't actually get anywhere the prose was overstuffed and not a single character actually caught my attention I was disappointed beause it was a very interesting premise but the author just didn't pull it off IMO
