Finished At the Back of the North Wind [1] by George MacDonald (3/5)

George MacDonald's fairy tales are a bit weird. One of his more well known novels, The Princess and the Goblin is standard fairy tale fare, but as you range further afield in his tales, the plots get more disjointed (in the "this is interesting -- let's insert it as a dream sequence!" sense) and the tone more moralizing.

That said, At the Back of the North Wind is a delightful tale of a young boy whose unique perspective on the world allows him to take adventures with the North Wind as she moves throughout the world. His perspective and his adventures affect all the people around him.

Also, it's public domain, so the Kindle download is free! This entry was originally posted at http://erikars.dreamwidth.org/402584.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
