Winter’s Tale

EMTs arrive to rescue her from the car, but she’s lost a lot of blood, and Tanner, the driver of the car? Dead at the scene. Doctors say Tara needs a blood transfusion, but her rare blood type makes that a difficult task.

Winter’s Tale: Book Review

This review was inspired by a list of movies coming out in 2014 that are based on books. Having seen a few trailers for the movies on the list, I saw Winter’s Tale and thought, “That seems like a nice, romantic story–perfect to review in time for Valentine’s Day.” Based on the movie trailer, I expected an easy read, with sentimentality to rival any Nicholas Sparks books and a dash of fantasy. What I got was a 768-page mammoth of a novel by Mark Helprin that proved a very challenging, and at times frustrating, exercise of the mind.
