2 of 10

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

Just completed book 2 out of my goal of completing 10 from my shelves. The Last Unicorn, hmm, what to say about it? It was sort of like a fairy tale, sort of like and adventure. Yes, it centered on the last remaining unicorn. And a magician. And Molly Grue. The unlikely gang set off on a heroic quest.

It wasn't a bad read, a nice, easy tale. But I found it somehow lacking- though I'm not sure exactly what was missing. It wasn't until a good halfway through before I felt any connection with the characters. It seemed a predictable tale and yet at the same time, I had no clue where the story was taking me. So on my random rating scale, this book merits a 5 out of 10.


  1. Have you ever seen the cartoon? I remember seeing it as a kid, and I thought it was one of the scariest and saddest movies I'd ever seen. It still makes me cry.

  2. I didn't know there was a movie! I'm going to have to find it. It was kind of a sad story...

  3. I'm pretty sure I have the movie. Let me see if I can find it. I can't believe you've never seen it!

    1. I didn't even know there was a movie! Let me know if you locate it!
