O narrador é chatinho, mas quando no Reino Médio a história fica simpática.

Disappointing. ( )

Good, but not great! The style, with the narrator constantly interrupting, bugged me at times. Still, I enjoyed it. The story is told by an 82 year old man recalling when he was 18. He served in WW I, moved to England, and had this adventure with fairies, a witch, and all sorts of craziness! ( )

Meh. I found this rather annoying and pointless. It wasn't terrible, and I managed to slog through, but it was a near thing. Neither erotic, nor enchanting, in my view. ( )

It's like Avatar, only with fairies instead of 10-foot aliens! OK, not entirely. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765327686, Hardcover)

For over half a century, Richard Matheson has enthralled and terrified readers with such timeless classics as I Am Legend, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Duel, Somewhere in Time, and What Dreams May Come. Now the Grand Master returns with a bewitching tale of erotic suspense and enchantment.…

1918. A young American soldier, recently wounded in the Great War, Alex White comes to Gatford to escape his troubled past. The pastoral English village seems the perfect spot to heal his wounded body and soul. True, the neighboring woods are said to be haunted by capricious, even malevolent spirits, but surely those are just old wives’ tales.

Aren’t they?

A frightening encounter in the forest leads Alex into the arms of Magda Variel, an alluring red-haired widow rumored to be a witch. She warns him to steer clear of the wood and the perilous faerie kingdom it borders, but Alex cannot help himself. Drawn to its verdant mysteries, he finds love, danger…and wonders that will forever change his view of the world.

Other Kingdoms casts a magical spell, as conjured by a truly legendary storyteller.
