The Contrary Tale Of The Butterfly Girl

Review:

The Contrary Tale of the Butterfly Girl: From the Peculiar Adventures of John Lovehart, Esq., Volume 2 (Notebooks of John Loveheart, E) - Ishbelle Bee

I find it difficult to review The Contrary Tale of the Butterfly Girl. Much like its predecessor The Singular and Extraordinary Tale of Mirror and Goliath, it will be unlike anything you’ve read before. Which also makes it hard to properly rate it.

John Loveheart is back and he’s probably madder than ever before, as he dances his way through this story. It was interesting, but at times I have to admit that it really lost me and maybe was a bit too weird, sliding into absurdism that wasn’t adding to the story any more.

However, at parts, following the crazy thoughts of John Loveheart are what made the story interesting. It is like a fairy tale for adults, as this sequel was darker than the first novel. In the end, there is room for another story, and I’m still curious.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
