Bought this the other day when I was in serious need of some retail therapy.

Maguire seems to have found his niche retelling classic children's stories from the point of view of the "bad guys", in the process making the stories much more believable, and questioning the basic assumptions they make. In this novel he retells Cinderella, turning it into a tale of psychological damage and political machinations. And of course the happily ever after is about as happy as real life ever gets...
