Fairy tale without the magic
Cold at heart ~ I felt no empathy
Lots of hype for this, and lots of award nominations, but it left me cold! I love fairy tales and to a degree this was a good retelling but it didn't elaborate or develop the theme. It plodded along in snow shoes and just didn't get anywhere. There were some great descriptive passage - so good they were repeated a few times.
This was like a present wrapped to entice in beautiful packaging, but with nothing of interest inside.
