This is a very dark and sinister take on the story of Hansel and Gretel. Though it is loosely based on that tale, it is very different from anything you would know. There are some quite gruesome scenes, definitely not for the faint-hearted. I liked Gretel as the main character and was engaged through the story, wanting to know what would happen to her. The old woman's point of view actually made me slightly sympathetic to her at some parts. It finished quite abruptly and I feel like something was missing as it jumped suddenly to the end without explanation. I guess the next book will explain more.
The reading was ok, but the narrator seemed to struggle on some of the words and the volume changes throughout the book. Sometimes it goes so quiet that the volume has to be turned right up.
