Who recommends: Catie
Who discommends:

Preeti, you mentioned that when you first read Beauty, your immediate reaction was an 'aah'. This book did that for me. A retelling of Andersen's fairy tale moved to Japan and with both the Nightingale and her false copy recast as human beings. Both the depiction of the Japanese court and the unfolding of the intricate plot which features war, intrigue, ghosts and several twined romances are masterly. Charming and beautiful, despite a lingering sadness the ending is happy.--Catie
