- I like how creepy the premise of this story is. I haven’t read anything like it before and it’s nice to not feel like I’m reading the same thing over and over again
- I really like that there is a reason the king can’t just lie and give the wrong answer to save himself some trouble. That was my first thought, but it’s not that he wasn’t smart enough to think of it, it’s that he can’t!
- Honestly, I liked this story at the beginning, but the lack of progress in the frame story is kind of obnoxious and repetitive. I think the story would be much better if we saw what was happening in the frame tale as well as the riddles.
