REVIEW ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Gregory Maguire FREE DOWNLOAD Hiddensee 107 Classic story Maguire discovers in the flowering of German Romanticism a migrating strain of a Hellenic mystery cult and ponders a profound uestion how a person who is abused by life short changed and challenged can access secrets that benefit the disadvantaged and powerless Ultimately Hiddensee offers a message of hope If the compromised Godfather Drosselmeier can bring an enchanted Nutcracker to a young girl in distress perhaps everyone however lonely or marginalized on the eve of a winter holiday has something precious to share. 35 StarsReviewIt took a while for me to get into this book but I enjoyed it in the end It was an interesting take on the background of the The Nutcracker and the life of the mysterious toymaker DrosselmeierWhat made this book hard for me to get into was how meandering it was It really was the story of Drosselmeier s life starting with his childhood all the way through death There was no real goal or stakes But that was the nature of the book It was meant to be of a preuel than a retelling the story of how Drosselmeier become a toymaker how he came to make the Nutcracker and how he became part of the Stahlbaum family Despite being easy to put down at times I did like the premise of getting to know the man and the background behind the famed Nutcracker And there were some unexpected turns and parts of the story where I was drawn in By the end I did want to keep readingI also liked Drosselmeier s POV He didn t have a whole lot of personality but it was in a way that made sense and seemed to suit him which probably doesn t make sense to anyone reading this review He had a very different life and perspective from mine and I always appreciate that in books Also Drosselmeier seemed to be attracted to men and women which would make this book LGBT but his sexuality was never explicitly statedThe writing had somewhat of a fairy tale feel to it Sometimes things were a little vague and otherworldly I just now realized that the fantasy element was very light Personally I would ve liked a bit of the fantastical But I liked how immersed the story was in the setting of 1800s GermanyI m sure there was to this book the blurb talks about all sorts of deeper things but I ve never been great at finding hidden meanings I just enjoyed this for the story If I recall correctly I wrote most of this review right after reading but I m only getting around to editing and posting it months later it had a wistful feeling to it It made me feel kind of melancholic I m not sure I m using that right kind of like a slight vague sadness but I think it s good when a book can make me feel anything even if it s not the most positive of emotionsI don t normally talk about the physical aspects of books but I have to say this book has a lot of cool stuff going on I have a hardcover copy and sadly I don t have the dust jacket because I bought it from Book Outlet I want that damn dust jacket so badly but I know it has a cut out where the walnut is and on the actual book is a giant nutcracker face holding the walnut between its teeth Also the pages are deckle edged which somehow matches the historical fairy tale feel of the storyThis may not be everyone s kind of book but I think you just need to know what you re getting into It s not a fun whimsical Christmas themed retelling but rather a fairytale esue story of a mysterious character s life that kind of ends with a nod to the original classic and I enjoyed itRecommended ForAnyone who like preuel retellings fairy tales and slow paced stories about a character s life Original Review Metaphors and Moonlight Initial ThoughtsAn interesting fairy tale esue take on the history behind the Nutcracker Meandering but it pulled me in the further I got 35 stars full review soonSide note Does anyone have the dust jacket of this book and not want it I got the hardcover without the jacket
