Fairy-tale romances end with a wedding, and the fairy tales don't get complicated. In this book, the celebrated writer Mr. Fox can't stop himself from killing off the heroines of his novels, and neither can his wife, Daphne. It's not until Mary, his muse, comes to life and transforms him from author into subject that his story begins to unfold differently.… (mere)

I'm someone who enjoys puzzling narratives that play with conventions, but everything in this book seems to be built on sand - there's no rules established before everything just takes off running, and there never seems to be a point where you can take a breath and catch up. There are some bits that I do like, though - I think Oyeyemi probably writes excellent short stories, judging by the short interludes interspersed throughout the book - but overall, it's just not for me.

The dedication for this novel reads:

"For my Mr Fox
(Whoever you are)"

It then goes on to present what seems to be lots of similar but mismatched short stories of almost the same characters and almost continuing the same story. They always revolve around the relationship between this Mr Fox, his wife Daphne and a Miss Foxe.
In almost all of them Mr Fox is a horrible manipulative, gas lighting, misogynistic jerk. This could all have been okay, it's a really well written novel, but following on from the dedication the whole thing just really creeped me out. I've finished it feeling unclean and sickened.

I've never had a book ruined for me by the authors dedication before! My advice, don't read the dedication before the novel, or just interpret the whole thing differently to me. ( )

This is a fantastically weird book. It is complex and creepy and will get under your skin and make you think. I loved it. I loved the way, it weaved lots of different versions of the same basic story together, and thought it was a very interesting read. I would recommend it to anyone, particularly women. ( )

Helen Oyeyemi’s captivating new novel, “Mr. Fox,” begins with a jaunty spirit and a sense of play. We meet Mr. Fox; he is a writer of slasher books, and he has an assistant, a woman named Mary whom he conjured in a trench during his days fighting in World War I. He also has a wife, Daphne. At some point or other, all three of them write.

Mr. Fox is also a reference to the English folk tale character Bluebeard — a man who murders and dismembers women freely until his wife-to-be, the clever Lady Mary, turns the tables and exposes him.
