That was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a boogeyman story and we get a weird little psycho story instead.
Although, I do wonder about Coppelius showing up at the end.
And why was he allowed to be so mean to the kids?
And why did the the little spy glass set Nathanael off at the end once he knew Olimpia was an automaton?
And was Coppola working with Coppelius?
I have an awful lot of unanswered questions for 44 pages that was taken up mostly with romantic relationship anxiety. LOL
