'Some Kind of Fairy Tale' is such a beauiful audiobook. It is well writen, with vivid discriptions of both scenery and characters alike. John Lee's melodious voice brings added depth to the story that could probably not be achieved in print. Both the writer and he reader carry you away quickly into the tale, capturing your imagintion, and making you not want to press the pause button!
I really enjoyed this book. Loads of mystery and a rivetting "read" which I recommend highly. Only a couple of things bothered me: Firstly there were a lot of Americanisms in a book based in the English midlands: trunk instead of boot; schoolyard for playground were a couple. A minor point but it did grate a little. The other was the narrator's rubbish Leicestershire accent - he made everyone sound like Paul McCartney, apart from the fat policeman who had a Birmingham accent. Perhaps he needs to visit Leicestershire! A pity because he's an excellent narrator. Apart from those two niggles it is a fantastic story - literally.

I downloaded this on a whim - it's a decent premise for a book that's for sure but I didn't expect to be quite so captivated at every step of the way. Aside from the obvious story to this, the character studies are excellent. Probably unintentional but excellent all the same. You'll forget that this is about faeries very early on as it leads into the lives of very normal people all affected by this singular event. Book of the year for me so far (it's August) and also brilliantly read, which makes a change!
