I snagged a copy of this through a give away. I chose this book because it was about a normal person being unexpectedly thrown into a different world. I wasn't sure how I would like the strict "diary/journal" format (not usually a big fan of it), but it was likely the best way for this story to be written. I was able to learn as Cass did which made me feel more emersed in the story than what sometimes happens. I often found myself as frustrated as I imaged Cass was at her lack of knowledge, but instead of being a distraction it made the story more realistic. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the next two books which I will be buying. Well worth the money in my opinion.
After reading this story, I didn’t know if I’d rather kill the wolf or give him a safe place to hide. The author was good at making me like a character one moment and despise him the next. Schmitz painted the Grimm Brothers as dysfunctional scientists/con artists who stop at nothing to get their story and the wolf as psychologically ill and looking for help. I had to sympathize with the wolf even as I hated him.
