    In realt non sapevo cosa aspettarmi da questo libro, per questo non sono sorpresa di essere rimasta delusa La storia di Mr Smyth non mi piaciuta per niente ma era ben raccontata, viceversa la storia di Mr Fee Il personaggio di Mr Cink l ho trovato molto ambiguo anche se prevedibile nella scelta dei sassi Il finale penso sia troppo difficile sia da comprendere sia da immaginare, in generale eccessivamente astratto PS io avrei scelto la storia di Mr Cink, nonostante la sua personalit.

    And a half It has great charm I thought I was re reading this but I am pretty sure I have not read it before There are three stories all retold from Irish fairy and folk tales wrapped in a fourth brief story which has an absolutely terrific and abrupt ending.

    Tre viaggiatori, una sfida chi riuscir a raccontare la storia pi bella E mentre il treno scorre sui binari della fantasia, il tempo sembra essersi fermato Un libro ricco di suspence e con un finale imprevedibile.
