Enchanting, Entertaining, Everything a fairytale should be.
Gabra Zackman read it to me as fairytales should be read.
I can't wait for her to read the next one to me.
this was a sweet story and i enjoyed it. it seems the rest of the series follows one off characters and i'm intrigued. i could have used more romance between the 2 leads.
I will definitely try another Mercedes Lackey book. This was a light, very enjoyable read.
I enjoyed the way the author brought a twist to the old Cinderella tale and interwove other fairy tale characters into the story. It was quite fun to suddenly see a connection to another story I've known all my life. Very creative and Gabra Zachman did a great job on the voices.
I decided to give this book a shot on one of the discount book sales. Had no expectations but this one was a pleasant surprise. It took a while to get into, but it was a very clever twist on some old fairy tales. I enjoyed how many familiar fairy tales are woven into this story. Thoroughly enjoyed the moral lessons taught to the middle son and how it was done. Loved her trusty steed, and the cast of house characters. If you are looking for a unique fairy tale, give this one a shot!
Loved the house elf Rose, and the trusty steed that pulled the Fairy Godmother's wagon. Oh, and the Mirror...just classic!
Wonderful accents, great energy, kept me up way too late on many nights listening.
This was better than I expected! I have found a new series to listen to. My one complaint is the unnecessary, explicit romantic moments. This would be a cute story for the YA readers if only it didn't have the "R" rating. The story however was light, fun, and creative. "Cinder" is a cute, clean book with the Cinderella style.
The test of the 3 brothers and the outcome of each.
The very last chapter with the accountability of the "evil step-mother and sisters."
The unique twist telling the role of a Fairy Godmother.
The Unicorns, Brownies, and other Fae creatures.
I liked the narrator.
I am anxious to immediately start reading the next book.
I didn't read the print version. I got this audio in an on sale offer.
The whole twist from the original "Cinderella" story.
The Prince charming character was well done in that it was a totally masculine view to the plot,
The point in the story when she knew that the"fairy godmother" was real and she would no longer be in servitude. The angst,loneliness, fortitude and hope of this charcacter carried the story.
This is a fresh perspective to an old story. I truly enjoyed every aspect, Well done from beginning to end without getting so far from the fable that it isn't recognizable. Looking forward to Part 2.So refreshing not to deal with all the overt sex scenes and vulgar language that have infiltrated the written word.Thanks.
This book is fine if you prefer a book that really is a romance novel. But if, like me, you like the romance to be secondary to the plot, then you may find this is just too fluffy.
I am in love with James Alexander Malcom Mackenze Frazer.
What would happen if Cinderella's prince charming was six years old, what is a fairy godmother to do. This is a most delightful tale.
Cinderella becomes Godmother
I don't know of another book that I could compare it to but, I was put in mind of the movie "Ever After". Both story's put a twist on the traditional Cinderella tail, where the maiden is empowered. However this tail takes that twist much further and adds a lot more twists and turns to the point that it completely deviates from that tail for most of the story, but comes nicely back to it at the end.
She was a wonderful reader. Each character had it's own distinct voice, but it was not overly dramatized.
Oh This book was lovely! I laughed most of my way through it. I could not point to only one part of the book because that would require me picking a favorite part. This is a book that I know I will be able to come back to time and again and find enjoyable each time.
Buy this book you'll be happy you spent the credit.
The narrator's voice and tone were terrible.
The character voices were fine but the narrator was absolutely terrible. This is very discouraging since I LOVE this book and have been waiting for years for them to come to audio and I am so frustrated by this poor part of the performance that it completely ruins the experience. Please check out the sample before purchasing something I never thought I would have to do for a Mercedes Lackey book.
