The indifferent narrative tone that describes the truly horrific lives of these people gives this short story an edge that nudges it to extraordinary territory. The ending doesn't necessarily fit the story, but by the time it occurs, the reader has already been through so much in the short word count that one is ready to accept anything that comes along. Overall, an excellent story.

Wow, another fantastic read from this author!

It's a dark fairytale, as all good fairytales should be (forget all your sugary sweet Disney versions).

Silly but kind of messed up. I imagined every Disney princess thrown into the mix, turned on their heads. Cool rose in the pic too.

Acting like lady is differnt from place to place, but in this universe the characters insist that to be truly ladylike is to remain silent. I felt that there was a strong feminist tone to this story that also roped everything in with socio-polical mores that present great meaning to those who find themselves enduring economic decline, all the while big-whigs are getting rich off the downtrodden and the meek. This story definitely captured the meaning of what it is to struggle both as low class and as a woman.

The part about the children playing with the dead birds will always sit with me. There was something inherently disturbing about it despite the author's whimsical tone. You should read it, I promise it won't disappoint you.

As emotionally driven as the ending of this book was, I found the buildup to it very comedic and enjoyable.

A whimiscal read, engaging from the start. "Princess" develops greatly as the main character in such a short span of time. This story definitely makes me think of cultural class division and what it takes to be a great leader. Political undertones are found in this story and I truly found them remarkable.
