Absolutely. I love a good fantasy, especially those centered around fairy tales or folklore. I was so excited to see this as the book of the month!

I dont know that I have ever read legends or myths as a book. This is very close to my favorite genre which is fantasy. Simliar to what some others have said, I think they are close enough that it is not really a stretch, but it is interesting to see the variations!

Fantasy isn't usually a draw for me either, but like others have mentioned, it's good to break out of one's comfort zone every once in a while and try something new. I know for me, I'm usually glad I did!

Yep. I'm a sucker for coming-of-age stories set in fantasy worlds.

I think that this piece seems to almost straddle genres. It doesn't seem super clear cut to me. It is an unusual read, to be sure. But that is rarely a bad thing!

My 'typical' 'genre' is non-fiction :-P. I love fast-moving stories of
the likes of Sidney Sheldon. So, this book does not excite me,
but somehow I want to read it and complete it!

Definitely not my comfort zone as far as genres go, but I'm always open to try new things! :)

No, this is not my typical genre. I like suspense thrillers and romance.

Fantasy is not my thing, but I can read them usually. It is good to try something different every once in awhile!

Not really my thing, but certainly wasn't bad at all. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I am well rounded person, but I mainly like Sci-fi, fantasy, poetry, and historical. But I do pick up time travel a lot more lately than I had in my life.

I have to admit, I'm not usually a big fantasy person. I like ore realistic books, specifically mystery. Something about this book was very different, though, and I got through the whole thing in a day!

I love fantasy, and the more that gets written about myths and legends, the more "new information" comes to light and the more we learn about different cultural beliefs.
