This cover is wonderful, just like the wonderful story written on it’s pages. Everything horrible that the queen does, it’s either out of stupidity, insecurity, or because someone else convinced her to do it.

Fairest by Gail Carson Levine – review

Although the romance wasn’t as realistic as the one between Ella and Char, it was really sweet and view spoiler [I loved Prince Ijori even more when I discovered his very first opinions of Aza hide spoiler ]. This is my fav book!

She is thoroughly convinced that she is ugly. Aza herself is likable enough but the use of lengthy song lyrics in place of dialogue slows what is already a plodding story and I found myself simply skipping over them. This skill becomes the tool for the newly married, beautiful young queen to win the hearts of the kingdom. I did like the overall message that beauty is more than just looks and I think it gets it across in a fun and entertaining way! She is different looking than everyone else around her, and she finds herself very ugly.


Informizely customer feedback surveys. I don’t ,evine Fairest as much as Ella Enchantedbut I still find this is one of those classic fairy-tale retellings that deserves repeated reads.

Innocent words of love exchanged. I look carspn to reading more of this author’s work and she may become one of my favorite authors!

The story is very sweet.

Anyway, the idea of a country where everyone sings instead of speaks as often as possible and birds fly around in the halls and make messes on people seemed pretty ridiculous to me. Besides the fact that it was clean, there is nothing in this book to recommend. I bet even pretty teenage girls worry that they aren’t pretty enough.

I completely related to Aza, as I’ve delt with self confidence problems, and eating disorders, and everything she felt about herself completely resonated inside me. Want personalized picks that fit your family? Is it any good?

This book is supposed to be like Snow White but more interesting. Oct 04, Kate Willis rated it liked it Shelves: Singing for any reason, and sometimes no reason. Yes, it is a retelling of Snow White, but with insights that really apply to most women today. It kept me entertained just like Ella Enchanted did. This story is a re-telling of Snow White but it lacks drama and suspense. Handmaid to queen discovers true beauty in charming fantasy.


Whereas Ella Enchanted was so brilliant because it answered a question that Cinderella left in a totally plausible way, i. Her vocal talents captivate all who hear them, and in Ontio Castle they attract the attention of a handsome prince – and a dangerous new queen.

There levime kissing and mild fantasy violence, along with some magical elements. There is something so deeply satisfying about falling in love with a book and the world inside that book and then discovering that there are more books by the same author also set in the same world.

En concreto, nuestra protagonista tiene una gran virtud para el canto, pero es fea.

He felt like a slighlty watered down version of Gsil Char, with a dog. She is invited to the castle as the handmaid for the king’s wedding to a mysterious young woman from another land. Aza learns that the queen has been given beauty through a magical mirror from the Fairy Lucinda, the same one in the book Ella Enchanted.

The prince has ears that are too big and a saucy yail by the name of Oochoo. Apr 09, E.
