    It's been many many years since I've seen the film, and that doesn't matter at all. This book is a lush, immersive dark fairy tale about justice, honor, and doing what's right for human kind, no matter how dire the circumstances may be. Del Toro and Funke make an excellent pair, and th...

    A splendid companion to the movie (and more on that in a moment), and a nicely packaged YA (young adult) fantasy/historical fiction crossover. As a fan of the movie (again, see below), it's hard for me to be objective about the book, so I'll leave the objectively to others. As a gen...

    "In our choices lie our fate." I will read literally anything that has Cornelia's name on it okay, which was the main reason I wanted this book. But I'd also seen the movie a few years ago and enjoyed the darker fairytale aspect of it . . . and honestly the movie was so much b...

    I have never wanted to see the film because I think it's the type of film that would unsettle me too much with its dark imagery, and yet as soon as I heard it was to be adapted and expanded upon for a novel I knew I wanted to read it! It's strange how I will read books that have darker...

    Charming book, a new kind of fairy tale based on old rhythms and rhymes. There's the exhausted and pregnant mother, the egregiously awful step-father, the totally enchanting little girl struggling to survive in a terrible, horrible, evil world. (Fascist Spain.) I'd seen the movie, ador...

    **I received a digital ARC of this title to review** As a huge fan of del Toro's work and of the movie version, I was extremely excited to get my hands on this title. The illustrations are so gorgeous and I absolutely love the cover design. The story is broken up into simple and...

    Pan's Labyrinth follows the story of Ofelia, who lost her father. Now her mother has remarried and is pregnant with Ofelia's new fathers baby. This story and the way it was told, reminded me so much of the old, gruesome fairytales. Not the rainbows and sunshine fairytales we tell ...

    I just want to flip back to the beginning and read it all over again! 5 ????? "In our choices lie our fate." This was just as magical and creepy as I had hoped it would be! I absolutely adore the film Pan's Labyrinth. It is 100% my jam, the perfect combination of f...

    So, I totally thought this was an MG story and hahahaha no. I don't know about the rest of you but when I think Pan's Labyrinth I think [insert creepy dude with eyes in the palms of his hands here]. I only saw the movie once, a million years ago, and I thought this was an extension ...

    When Ofelia and her mother move to a remote village in Spain, a fairytale is about to come to life. I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This was a beautiful dark story, and everything I hoped for. Ofelia is just a simple girl. She is the daugh...

    Once upon a time, when the woods were young, they were home to creatures who were full of magic and wonder .... "Here!" She turned the open book to her visitor. "See? That?s a Fairy." Well. If the girl thought so. Ofelia?s visitor decided to play along. "My...

    This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I was NOT DISAPPOINTED. Cornelia Funke (+ Guillermo del Toro) did it again. This is dark, twisted, whimsical and I'd recommend it for Halloween, and definitely not for kids if they don't like scary stuff. So TGW: Abuse, w...

    "You're getting older, and you'll see that life isn't like your fairy tales. The world is a cruel place. And you'll learn that, even if it hurts." This was one odd and creepy story...but I liked it! I can see why it's a cult classic. RTC ...

    I'm watching Pan's Labyrinth as I write this review because it seems like the right thing to do. As one of my favorite movies of all time, I had to request this title from Edelweiss. I told them I would give them a leg to be able to review this title. Since they allowed me this honor, ...

    See more of my book reviews on my blog, Literary Flits I'm not a great fan of film versions of books so I wasn't sure how I would get on with a book version of a film. However I am such a fan of del Toro's work that, when I spotted Pan's Labyrinth on NetGalley, I knew I had to give ...

    I can't believe I actually got to read this. Like a million others, this film is one of my absolute favorites. I watched it first in 2011. It was horrifying and tragic, hauntingly beautiful and sad. I made sure my nephews watched the Pale Man scene a couple of times. The book follows ...

    This was a turn up for the books, a novel of the mesmerising and stunning 2006 film Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro that I adored, written by the film director and Cornelia Funke, with details and analysis of the film. Reading this bought back the movie in much of its original gl...

    Absolutely brilliant writing, though I had an advantage of not watching the movie first! Books are turned into bad movies but movies are turned into good books when Del Toro and Cornelia re-writes them! A little girls adventure to find out her true self, and emotional growth wit...

    One of my most vivid memories of GCSE Spanish is watching in mute horror as the Pale Man bit a faerie in half. Pan?s Labyrinth inspired a fear in me that I don?t think I?ve come across in a film since. It?s fantasy, but it?s dark. It?s twisted. There is only the tiniest ...

    First of all, I want to say that Pan's Labyrinth is one of my all time favourite films in the world. It is such a wonderful blend of dark magic, wonder and grim reality that it is everything I've ever wanted from a story and more. However, the novelisation by Cornelia Funke somehow ...

    I don't know why I was expecting something different from the movie as the movie came first... I really enjoyed it, I love that type of a bit darker and twisted tales so I was happy listening to it. And Guillermo does the narration so it was even better!!! ...
