Review of Ogres by Adrian Tchaikovsky

My review of Ogres by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Speculative novella (available in ebook and limited edition signed hardcover)

5 of 5 (wow wow wow!)

I'm already a fan of Adrian Tchaikovsky's writing from some of his SF work, but when it comes to fairy tales I tend to be pretty hesitant, so the opening to this novella had me very leery. But I kept at it, and boy was it worth it. A fantastic read that keeps up a solid pace and plenty of turns that are thought provoking and significantly deepen the story. Very worth the full price of admission. I'll have to grab a hardcover for my collection. This is one to re-read. The POV was fantastic here. Really enjoyed the narration and the use of 2nd person POV (I really enjoy good examples of this to use it against the naysayers --> 2nd person is so so so useful and engaging and here is yet another example of that).

Don't miss out. This is definitely a read you want to dive into. Note: I read an advanced copy from NetGalley and am very thankful for that. Still hoping to snag copy of the hardcover though. It was that good!
