Which one did I love the most? Angela Carter's "The Company of Wolves". There's a movie based on Carter's version!

Which I did love the least (so far)? Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis by Freud


  1. I read Oedipus and Antigone in high school and I really liked them. The Freud book sounds interesting but I could see it being a tough read.

  2. I read those books for my Fairy Tale class. They're fabulous. Too bad you didn't read the Sleeping Beauty one. I think it's called Talia, Sun, Moon, and Stars or something like that. Twisted as heck!

  3. LOVE angela carter. You should get your hands on one of her short stories/novella anthologies. After reading "Company of Wolves" I rushed to the library and borrowed it and now I own a copy. Woot! My favorite story is "Puss-in-boots”, and I love her twist on the vampire story in “The Lady of the House of Love".


  4. I never realized The Company of Wolves was a book, I loved that movie!
