“ Charm is all well and good,” she said, straining the sausages and setting them on a towel to dry. “ But charm doesn’t put bread on the table. Charm goes out with his friends at night when he could be showing his son to all the great masters himself.”
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
At the current place of where I’ve read, it’s a no. It looks to be set in old world Germany and it wasn’t the nicest place for women if you weren’t well off. Plus, the goblins that are inhabiting the winters of the areas just give me a super gross feeling, no amount of charm from the Goblin King would be able shake that feeling as he’s a bit creepy himself. I don’t know if I’m pulling my feelings from an analysis of Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market” poem that I read in college or what. I just can’t shake this gross feeling I have about the world the story is set in.
