Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan

I don't like writing an entry for a book I haven't finished but it hasn't stopped me in the past and I guess it's not stopping me this time. Liga's life is terrible. She's repeatedly raped by her father and forced fed concoctions designed to make her abort. When her father dies she is already pregnant. after she gives birth she is gang raped and has another child. Living in a world she hates and hates her, she ends up in a different one that is heavenly. There is also a man who is transformed into a bear who briefly lives with her family. I put this down and picked up so many times and only got a third of the way through. Sorry, but I'm a nay.

OK, Allison, it took me a very long time to finish this book, but it does get better, I'll tell you. This book reminds me of the original dark Grimm fairy tales, combined with the Golden Compass, with a Ms. Coulter and everything. I liked this book, but I didn't really love it. The fact that it took me 4 weeks to finish it while I have at least 38 other titles to read means that I'm giving it a Thumbs Down.
