Book review of Fairy Tale by Stephen King
I will start with the style that King used when writing this. It is in first person and he does a great job in keeping the story going throughout the book. The beginning is slow to start as he builds his main character which takes a good number of chapters. His ability and skill at telling this tale shows that he is still one of the best storytellers in the world.
With how King presents the characters throughout the book keeps the interest in what is going to happen next. At first the book starts off simple enough until about a third of the way in and then the change that happens where he opens up into the real story. There is a question that he makes you wonder about and when I was reading I didn't expect the answer to happen until the end. In all honesty I was thinking there was going to be a death bed confession. I was happy that I was wrong in a way.
As King takes the story into another world I can say that this book is an adult fairy tale, not to take anything from the name. The book has its queen who needs help and a unseen hero from a different world and the bad guy who isn't mentioned until later in the book.
The book is an easy read but you have to pay attention to the story. In my opinion this is one of King's better books as I have read a good number of his work. I would recommend this book for reading if you are looking for something that is a little different from King's normal horror books.
The next book that I am going to be reading is The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews.
