An interesting take on "redeeming quality". I very much appreciated your review for this one. It reduced my TBR.
Hah. :)

Well, I keep thinking "there has to be something I'm missing about this book" -- this is one of my few DNFs / did-not-likes this year that keep having me baffled. The idea that most of its readers (1) are in a different demographic than me, (2) read it as fantasy / fairy tale instead of historical fiction, and (3) either don't know or don't care about the historical bits that Ahdieh is getting plain wrong would at least explain some of it. And for (1) and (2), I can't necessarily blame those other readers -- nor Ahdieh, for that matter. Though it's obviously (3) that is the real sin in my book.
