Descrizione

Echo Alkaev's safe and carefully structured world falls apart when her father leaves for the city and mysteriously disappears. Believing he is lost forever, Echo is shocked to find him half-frozen in the winter forest six months later, guarded by a strange talking wolf — the same creature who attacked her as a child. The wolf presents Echo with an ultimatum: if she lives with him for one year, he will ensure her father makes it home safely. But there is more to the wolf than Echo realizes.

In his enchanted house beneath a mountain, each room must be sewn together to keep the home from unraveling, and something new and dark and strange lies behind every door. When centuries-old secrets unfold, Echo discovers a magical library full of books-turned-mirrors, and a young man named Hal who is trapped inside of them. As the year ticks by, the rooms begin to disappear and Echo must solve the mystery of the wolf's enchantment before her time is up — otherwise Echo, the wolf, and Hal will be lost forever.

    This was (unexpected) a great read! I'm always wary of retellings, but I liked this one. The love was a bit too fast and all consuming for me, but I think that's just me growing out of YA romances

    Not the best one, but also not the worst. Perfect for listening to while doing mundande chores. A bit of too much stuffed into short sequences towards the end, and a meek martyrlike male-protagonist. Echo though serves well as a good example for a human growing from all insecurities to a blossoming assertive person facing her fears (and oh, the story also tackles the issue of pressures to look "beautiful" for girls & women). I do not like using the wolfs and strong earth-mother symbolism as a 100%negative character though, it feeds on a trope of rivalry between old and young women too much, which so many stories already have brainwashed us with. It is also amped up with the "evil stepmother" trope here, so cumulatively, if not analyzing it maturely, all more important supportive characters that are "good" are boys and men while all female evil, untrustwothy and vile. Seen like this it is a story of how women should never trust eachother (especially "older" women), and only believe in men. If you manage to look past that aspect in the symbolism of the story you can revel in fantasy and magical creatures, magical everchanging homes, and love as the most old and powerful mahig of all. Would not recommend to my own teen, if not listened to together.

    wow, at first I think this is another 'beauty and the beast' retelling but when the story goes on I realised this is 'east to the sun west to the moon' and it beautifully done.

    the story was slow and quiet. it slowly build not that kind of that get into right away. but I kinda like it. I want the magical library! every detail was wrap up beautifully in the end.

    If others cannot see your true self. if they refuse to see it. that is a flaw in their own character not in yours.

    I highly recommend and if you like East by Edith Pattou you will like this as well or vice versa.

    The writing in this book is absolutely stunning and the narrator is amazing! One of my new favorites
