  1. The feeling I came away from The Tooth Fairy with was neither of happiness nor of satisfaction and, although it was a fairly dark story, neither was the feeling anything like despair Somewhere between those points is some combination of recognition, rememberance, anticipation, and a sense of loss that make up the un nameable feeling with which I connected with this book This is a fairy tale and a coming of age story that combine beautifully to remind us of how much we lose and how much we gain The feeling I came away from The Tooth Fairy with was neither of happiness nor of satisfaction and, although it was a fairly dark story, neither was the feeling anything like despair Somewhere between those points is some combination of recognition, rememberance, anticipation, and a sense of loss that make up the un nameable feeling with which I connected with this book This is a fairy tale and a coming of age story that combine beau...

  3. Graham Joyce surely is one of the most underrated authorsis this possibly because he is so hard to market Is he horror Is he fantasy Or possibly social surrealism What ever he is his stories are strange, magical and original and he fast becoming one of my favourite authors.He likes to instill in the reader a feeling of lingering uneasiness You come away from the book feeling your perception of the world has been just been knock slightly askew away from what you previously thought Graham Joyce surely is one of the most underrated authorsis this possibly because he is so hard to market Is he horror Is he fantasy Or possibly social surrealism What ever he is his stories are strange, magical and original and he fast becoming one of my favourite authors.He likes to instill in the reader a feeling of lingering uneasiness You come away from the book feeling your perception of the world has been just been knock slightly askew away from what you previously thought to be normal Graham refuses to come down on one side or the other of the ideas he presents in his novel, it is all about ambiguity and uncertaintySam, Clive and Terry are ordinary ish boys growing up in the 1960s until one day when Clive punches Sam in the mouth ...

  4. Through a window a broken fingernail of moon was visible It barely illumined the intruder s face, but what Sam could see he didn t like Two dark eyes, shiny like the green black carapace of a beetle, flashed at him The eyes were set deep, each in a squint counterpoised to the other, lurking under a matted shock of black hair Tangled elf locks framed high cheek bones and a swarthy complexion A row of teeth glimmered in the faint moonbeams, a mouthful of blue light The teeth were perfect,Through a window a broken fingernail of moon was visible It barely illumined the intruder s face, but what Sam could see he didn t like Two dark eyes, shiny like the green black carapace of a beetle, flashed at him The eyes were set deep, each in a squint counterpoised to the other, lurking under a matted shock of black hair Tangled elf locks framed high cheek bones and a swarthy complexion A row of teeth glimmered in the faint moonbeams, a mouthful of blue light The teeth were perfect, but, unless he was mistaken, they were sharpened to fine dagger points Such a hideous, chilling and unconventional descriptio...

  5. This one is hard to rate Hard because it is a good book but not what I expected This is listed under most shelves as Horror and is the reason I started it this month I can see where some might consider it Horror, but in my opinion, this was a coming of age dark fantasy tale Even though I was a little disappointed because I was shooting for pure horror for my October reading spree, I was still caught up in the story and was entertained to the end This is my third Graham Joyce novel and I This one is hard to rate Hard because it is a good book but not what I expected This is listed under most shelves as Horror and is the reason I started it this month I can see where some might consider it Horror, but in my opinion, this was a coming of age dark fantasy tale Even though I was a little disappointed because I was shooting for pure horror for my October reading spree, I was still caught up in the story and was entertained to the end This is my third Graham Joyce novel and I can t figure out why this guy isn tpopular I would put the first book of his I read, Limits of Enchantment among ...

  6. This is such a beautiful book I know this feeling I felt it when I read the Lovely bones It s not quite the same feeling though I feel I ve lost some friends almost The heads looked at the gang there are chapters in this book where the author takes you on a journey Of childhood, adolescence and dark childhood terror s and dreams All this seems to revolve around Sam s the main character in the story personal experiences, sexual awakenings and frustrations And his best friends too are This is such a beautiful book I know this feeling I felt it when I read the Lovely bones It s not quite the same feeling though I feel I ve lost some friends almost The heads looked at the gang there are chapters in this book where the author takes you on a journey Of childhood, adolescence and dark childhood terror s and dreams All this seems to revolve around Sam s the main character in the story personal experiences, sexual awakenings and frustrations ...

  7. I met Graham Joyce at Fantasycon last year and asked him which of his books would be the best one to start with He recommended The Tooth Fairy, so I went ahead and picked it up I went in blind, as it were I didn t even read the blurb on the back of the book, and consequently had no idea what to expect.It was a very compelling read There s a sense in which the storytelling is deliberately unstructured, depriving you of the usual clues to the direction the narrative is taking This has the ef I met Graham Joyce at Fantasycon last year and asked him which of his books would be the best one to start with He recommended The Tooth Fairy, so I went ahead and picked it up I went in blind, as it were I didn t even read the blurb on the back of the book, and consequently had no idea what to expect.It was a very compelling read There s a sense in which the storytelling is deliberately unstructured, depriving you of the usual clues to the direction the narrative is taking This has the effect of sharpening the horror, making you feel that everything is at stake, all the time The tooth fairy itself is a unique creation so much so that although the book stands in a well established tradition of coming of age with supernatural stuff going on stories, it really doesn t feel like anything I ve read before And the denouement, when it came, left me both breathless and profoundly moved I d imagined a lot of ways in which the narrator and his nemesis might finally settle what was between them, b...

  8. Joyce walks a prose tightrope by perfectly balancing this story so that the uncertainty and tension pull taut throughout the narrative It s not so much scary as it is disturbing and unnerving The journey from child to adult is one fraught with loss, fear, and strange, un...

  11. What I remembered, rather than learned, was how really terrifying childhood and adolescence can be The character of the Tooth Fairy , at once both horrifying and mesmerizing, wraps up all those childhood pre puberty and teenage puberty fears into one repelling yet intriguing character The story centers on 3 boys Sam, Clive, and Terry and begins with a large pike from the local pond biting off two of Terry s toes It s a rollercoaster ride after that, and a dark one at that imagine ridi What I remembered, rather than learned, was how really terrifying childhood and adolescence can be The character of the Tooth Fairy , at once both horrifying and mesmerizing, wraps up all those childhood pre puberty and teenage puberty fears into one repelling yet intriguing character The story centers on 3 boys Sam, Clive, and Terry and begins with a large pike from the local pond biting off two of Terry s toes It s a rollercoaster ride after that, and a dark one at that imagine riding a rollercoaster alone in the dark by yourself, and that s how my stomach felt by the end I can t imagine what fills Joyce s brain spid...

  12. Graham Joyce blows me away He writes sensually That sounds a bit rude He IS a bit rude Earthy You can almost feel and taste and smell, especially the leaf mold, and the musty smell of an old shed years after the suicide of its occupant.Here he writes about the evolution of a group of young boys, through to their departure for university He manages to get right inside their rather strange world The protagonist is literally a character in the Tooth Fairy s nightmare.And when you think Graham Joyce blows me away He writes sensually That sounds a bit rude He IS a bit rude Earthy You can almost feel and taste and smell, especially the leaf mold, and the musty smell of an old shed years after the suicide of its occupant.Here he writes about the evolution of a group of young boys, through to their departure for university He manages to get right inside their rather strange world The protag...

  13. Meandering and sometimes meanspirited, Joyce s novel is that rare beast of a coming of age story I d call it a bildungsroman but I m not sure the main characters actually learned anything that defies all conventionality, instead heads in a million disparate directions at once, and comes up bloody roses The fantastic lives alongside the real, but in shadows, just out of view to everyone else besides one character, and the reader The characters are children, but the situations presented are de Meandering and sometimes meanspirited, Joyce s novel is that rare beast of a coming of age story I d call it a bildungsroman but I m not sure the main characters actually learned anything that defies all conventionality, instead heads in a million disparate directions at once, and comes up bloody roses The fantastic lives alongside the real, but in shadows, just out of view to everyone else besides one character, and the reader The characters are children, but the situations presented are decidedly adult, accurately casting an adolescent s fixation on sex as a central tenet of the story I can t bring myself to describe the plot, but it s the gorgeous prose itself and the tone of the tale that works so many of the wonders here wistful and wondrous in turns, there s a sense of deep melancholy mixed with palable paranoia, excitement and lust running headlong into fleeting bursts of horror Tragedy underscores much of the action...
