Written by Neil Gaiman, the master did not disappoint. This short story is a twist on the tale of Rapunzel with Snow White as the heroine.

I really enjoyed this story, and Gaiman’s unique take on the story was refreshing, particularly when so many re-telling of classic tales are coming out, and few will echo so well back to one of the original versions. By that I mean that the thorns expand.

Highly recommend The Sleeper and The Spindle for anyone who is a fan of re-tellings or any kind of fantasy/adventure novel.
