    PDF/EPUB Gregory Maguire · A Wild Winter Swan ePUB ´ A Wild eBook å · wild epub, winter book, swan pdf, A Wild mobile, A Wild Winter Swan PDFEPUBI received an advance galley of this book through LibraryThing Early ReviewersWhere A Wild Winter Swan succeeds is in evoking a magical early 1960s New York City at Christmastime with Italian born grandparents and an Irish cook and cold weather described with visceral ferocity The atmosphere is incredible Where it lacks for me is the entire fantasy concept that is supposed to form the heart of the book and the main character's developmentThis book is definitely being marketed to a 'literary' audience I approach this as a well read fantasy reader I was frustrated as I read because the magical aspect completely l

    PDF/EPUB Gregory Maguire · A Wild Winter Swan ePUB ´ A Wild eBook å · wild epub, winter book, swan pdf, A Wild mobile, A Wild Winter Swan PDFEPUBThis was a gift to me through the Giveaway page an ARE I wish I could give it a thrilling wonderful review but I just cannotApparently this author has written many books taken from Hans Christian Anderson's and others fairy tales and is responsible for the popular play and movie Wicked Therefore there is a chance it could be just me After all I've just finished reading Chris Colfer and Gerald N Lund so this was slow and boring in comparisonI kept waiting for the tension to build but it never did Even the ending was ho hum although a bit of a surprise written in It takes place over the Christmas Holiday week when a teenage girl who lives with her grandparents has a swan fly into her window Well not really a swan A one winged teen From Anderson's The Wild Swans 1838 but takes place in modern New York CitySo what would you do if a one winged boy flew into your attic bedroom window? How do you think it ended? You may still enjoy this Maybe read the fairy tale first
