A fairy tale for grown-ups I had to read for my Byatt seminar at university. While reading I found it a bit weird and cryptic but the more I think and discussed about it in class, the more depth I see in the story.
It´s one of those pieces of literature where you can see a symbol or metaphor in nearly every sentence. Opens up endless possibilities for discussions and interpretations but might leave you a bit unsatisfied as it doesn´t give you a solid, proper message or ending.
Definitely not something for everyones taste but recommended for people with an interest in fairy tales and feminist literature. My verdict is: If you like Angela Carter then you probably will like this.
