High in his attic (اٹاری) bedroom,21 Year old David mourns (ماتم) the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is alone, with only the books on his shelf for company.
But those books have begun to whisper (فسفسانا) to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge (پناہ) in the myths and fairytales (پریوں کی کہانیاں) so beloved of his dead mother he finds that the real world and the fantasy (فنتاسی) world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words ( رہسیپورن الفاظ ): ‘Welcome, your majesty( عظمت ). All hail the new king.’
And as war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolves and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a legendary book . . .

So, if you talk about book , I can’t find anything fallacious , incorrect with the book – it’s beautifully written, and does a very nice job exposing the dark side of growing up through the power of fairy tales – it’s just that I never got into it. And that, of course, is just as likely to be my fault as the book’s, so other readers who like dark fairy tales will hopefully have better luck with it than I did.
