Valente ´ ´ In the Night Garden PDF/EPUB ✓ In the eBook night book, garden epub, In the mobile, In the Night Garden PDFI've read parts of The Arabian Night about thirty years ago In the Night Garden succeeds in recapturing that sense of wonder of exploring incredibly rich exotic cities meeting fantastic creatures magicians kings and vagabonds sailing to mythical shores or descending into mysterious caverns And Catherynne Valente managed this without copying or borrowing from the original talesHer world may be inspired from different folk tales I recognized Baba Yaga hut and people turned into birds and I'm sure there are others but it feels original and modern in its self awareness sometimes ironic treatment and dialogue Some of the tales are uite dark others bring a smile or a l

    PDF/EPUB Catherynne M. Valente ´ ´ In the Night Garden PDF/EPUB ✓ In the eBook night book, garden epub, In the mobile, In the Night Garden PDFThis has taken forever for me to finish I just didn't want to go back to it The first part is beautifully written but her prose feels very effortful as if all the beauty had to be hammered out line by line and she wants you to see each stroke It finally picked up but the interconnecting stories create a jumbled mess of a plot not at all helped by the fact that many characters live for centuries therefore making a general timeline almost impossible to put together Very prettily described things happen in a very haphazard order
