A little less directional than book one, but with the same splendid worldbuilding (I still appreciate any setting that gives one mammoths and magic) and a fascinating back and forth approach on the tale itself.

This is such a fun book, especially since I went into it without really knowing what it was going to be about. But the play of storytelling and the talking tigers and the seamless and uncommented on queerness was delightful. I loved the idea of being sucked into a story despite oneself, and just kind of grudgingly giving in to wanting to hear what happened next, even if it could hurt you. Also, it's got such a fun sense of humor undercutting the danger of the situation. Very good, I was delighted.

La storia che il clerico racconta è molto carina e le correzioni di essa che fanno le tigri risultano interessanti, ma gli intervalli tra essa, in particolare ciò che la precede e ciò che lo segue non mi hanno particolarmente convinto.
