This book tells the story of Mrs Spitzer and her garden, and how she takes care of it until the year's end. A story about a teacher and how she plants a garden and sees all the flowers bloom.

Entirely fun and engaging. While fairly typical for a fairy tale retelling, I cannot help myself, I love them.

I did get bogged down in the middle, the journey through the arctic was tedious, but the story overall was good.

Classic fairy tale "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" is transplanted to 16th-century Europe for a story about cartography, weaving, and trolls.

East is filtered through multiple voices: some of these perspectives make sense (the heroine, the bear, the troll queen); some of them are less explicable (Rose's father and brother, who do little of note). The book does a nice job of grounding fairy-tale archetypes and conventions into a realistic setting, but it doesn't do anything particularly innovative or radical with the material. I craved pulpier thrills, but East tends more to the mellow and low-key.… (més)
