    PDF Hiddensee eBook ´ Ã beechesgardenservicescouk hiddensee ebok, Hiddensee PDFEPUBRating 255 starsI picked up this book because I was looking for a retelling of the Nutcracker to get me in the Christmas spirit I should’ve known better than to trust Maguire to instill holiday cheer into anything he writes I was definitely not filled with cheer and goodwill while reading this which was a disappointment I should’ve seen comingWas this a bad book?

    PDF Hiddensee eBook ´ Ã beechesgardenservicescouk hiddensee ebok, Hiddensee PDFEPUBThe book began with a 'tale' which never really seemed to take shape or reach a conclusion Mr Maguire knows how to write this genre well; but I was disappointed with the disjointed story of Dirk and his purpose and the mainly incidental references to the nutcracker he madeI will re read soon and try to piece together what I may have missed the first time around

After Alice his Alice in Wonderland adaptation was bad enough another 1 star review but I was lured in by the premise of a backstory to the nutcracker I'm an idiot I should have stayed clear My god this story hardly anything to do with the nutcracker and the first 200 pages was about a boy named Dirk wandering the countryside no mention of A nutcracker or THE nutcracker OR Christmas NOTHING ZILCH Literally dumb I hate this I'm never tricking myself into reading his stuff again Avoid if you know wha
