Before I reached the plot of the story, I had to take a little break, over worry for Radar. Stephen King writes dogs magically, and like no other author. He has done this in both The Stand (❤️❤️ Big Steve / Kojak) and The Eyes of the Dragon (❤️❤️ Frisky), and he has done it again in Fairy Tale (❤️❤️ Radar).
This is the first story in a long time that I’ve just wanted to stretch out as long as I could manage because I was so immersed with the characters in this world and I didn’t want the story they were in to end just yet.
I read aloud to my daughters at bedtime well after they could read on their own because some of my own happiest memories are from when my now long gone grandfather would tell me stories when I was little during my own bedtime. He’d sit next to my bed and tell me all these stories about when he was young. Those memories along with my memories of reading to my girls are among my most precious. At any rate, I got the audiobook of this because I still love being read to at night before I go to sleep - it’s a comfort thing for me. And Fairy Tale was just that, a fairy tale, and an amazing one at that.
Seth Numrich, along with Stephen King as Mr. Bowditch, were fantastic and really enhanced the novel for me.
Strong recommendation from me.
