The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does s...

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleThis is a tricky one for me to rate. I remember I used to watch the movie all the time when I was little. I don't remember if I liked it; I vividly remember being terrified by the Red Bull and the harpy, but I'm assuming I liked it if I remember watchi...

I didn't realize that this was a serious fantasy book and not a kids' story, until I read a comment by Patrick Rothfuss highly praising it. It's short, imaginative, funny, thoughtful, and inspiring.

This is another example of me reading a book because I loved the movie. When I was a kid, I could watch this movie over and over again, until I knew all the songs and most of the dialogues by heart. But it was only recently when I learned, that it is actually based on a book by Peter S. Beagle. To b...

There's a fallacy about post-Tolkien fantasy. And that's that it started with his imitators in the 70's and later, like Brooks' Shannara series. But, really, post-Tolkien fantasy started pretty much immediately after he changed that landscape of high fantasy with the Lord of the Rings. Lloyd Alexand...

This is a classic fantasy book originally published in the 1960’s. There is also an animated movie adaptation, and a more recently-published graphic novel, but I had never seen or read this story in any form so it was brand new to me. If you’re trying to get a hold of this book, and you aren’t inter...

Just beautiful.. I picked this up at my local library as it's a book I've always wanted to read. I always have a happy memory of my dad picking me up and popping me in front of tv with vhs and watching the cartoon of the Last unicorn. It was both mind blowing magical and just also scary! i was o...

I am horrified that I have never read this before. I can't imagine how many years of being able to re-read this I have missed. I really, really loved it. It is playful and dark and lyrical and melancholy. It ended just right and yet I wanted to know more. I considered flipping it over and starti...

Reading 'The Last Unicorn' as if it were any other fantasy novel is a mistake. I can understand why so many readers are disappointed coming into it expecting the epic fantasy of Tolkien. Beagle was writing fantasy in the way that William Goldman and Poul Anderson did, with both an irreverence and a ...

Twenty or more years ago I might well have loved this but it's just a little too precious to suit now.Library copy.
