Review: Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran

Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran

A chilling fantasy retelling of the Snow White fairy tale by bestselling creators Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran.

A not-so-evil queen is terrified of her monstrous stepdaughter and determined to repel this creature and save her kingdom from a world where happy endings aren't so happily ever after.

From the Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, Nebula Award-winning and Sunday Times-bestselling writer Neil Gaiman (American Gods) comes this graphic novel adaptation by Colleen Doran (Troll Bridge).

Pages: 88
Format: E-Book
Published By: Headline
Genre: Adult ~ Fantasy, Horror


Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman is a horrific retelling of Snow White, but told from the "Evil" Queen's perspective. In this narrative, Snow White is not the innocent princess we all know her as, she happens to be a vampire, and personally, if retelling Snow White as a monster, a vampire really suits her.

This isn't a happy retelling of Snow White, it's dark and full of gore, written in graphic novel form. It was definitely a short read, only sitting around 88 pages, so it does leave me a little unsatisfied with the length. I really wanted more for this novel, but it definitely showcases the ability of Neil Gaiman to spin an amazing novel in such short amount of pages.

This book is definitely perfect for this time of year, with the spooky-esque vibe this novel gives off. I would highly recommend. And I absolutely adore the cover, with the artistic style and color scheme.
