Regarded as one of the most lyrical, resonant, and charming fantasy novels ever written. 'The Last Unicorn' is an elegy for a world that has lost its magic, lost its sense of wonder, and whose people are desperate to get it back but so passive in their acceptance of the mundanity of their lives that they can't even see the magic and the beauty that's there in the world around them.
