Matchless

LibraryThing has a program of sorts that offers up advance copies of books to members willing to review them online.  The list of available books is on the home page and it isn’t a bad way to keep up with who is coming out with what.  If you care.
On the page right now is Gregory Maguire’s new book.  You know, the guy that wrote Wicked.  He has done some really good stuff and some really mediocre stuff, and I took a second look.
It’s called Matchless.  My cold black heart sank a bit.  Please tell me it isn’t about the Little Match Girl.  I freakin’ hate that story. 
It is.
There are three early reviews and there is no consensus of opinion, although it sounds like the ending is somewhat less tragic.  Don’t care.  Won’t be reading it.
