CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Mailing this to another BookCrosser for Holiday Gift Giving!

I apologize for the poor condition of the book. I searched my local Friends of the Library store for something on your wishlist, and this was the only book I could find from your wishlist. It is definitely a well-used book, but I hope you will enjoy the read.

Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)

Received from slb453 for Holiday Gift Giving 2010, as A Fine and Private Place was on my wishlist. I've read The Last Unicorn, but I'm looking forward to the others. Thank you!

This volume contains two novels, a novella, and a short story, so I'll review them each separately.

Lila the Werewolf: A strange and somewhat sad tale of a young woman who occasionally turns into a wolf, much to the dismay of her boyfriend. A good example of "just because it's fantasy doesn't mean it's for children". It's written well, just a little disturbing to read.

The Last Unicorn: This is a marvelous book. I've read it before, and did not reread it this time around, but it remains one of my favorites.

A Fine and Private Place: A tale of two ghosts, a raven, and a man who lives in a cemetery. It's decidedly bittersweet, with a little humor here and a little tragedy there. It was very introspective and atmospheric - a "quiet" book, if you will. I liked the snarky raven - and I thought it odd how, in a cemetery where people think talking to ghosts is a little weird, no one ever mentions how unusual it is for a raven to speak. I wish there had been just a little bit more about Laura and Michael, especially there at the end, but all in all it was good.

Come Lady Death: An old woman decides to invite Death to her next party - and Death does indeed attend. The ending left me a little cold, but otherwise it was a decent story.
