When Mr. Morgan was trying to speak with Billy after the fight with Nate and Billy almost told the truth about his father's death. I was in tears.
There were some moments when I felt the narration was lacking. The first several chapters lagged. It went a little too slow. I even stopped listening for a while because I felt a little bored. But once I pushed passed it, I picked it back up and listened the rest of the way through and really enjoyed it.
Definitely the ending. And the part when Ella was trying to comfort Billy after he told her he couldn't keep the secret anymore.
The audio was crystal clear. As mentioned above, the first chapters felt lagging and slow, but all in all, I did enjoy the book.
This really made me escape to a world where everything is a happy ever after! I was caring for my hubby post op and this was one of the audiobooks that made me forget my troubles for awhile. Thank you!!! <3
The Book Junkie Reads. . .
One fantastic fairytale that turns heads and changes things around with a few twist, en evil step-mother, spells, magic, a teacher, a brother, a sister, a friends, and lots of misdirection and half truths. This was one fairytale that was full of fun and not the expected.
Voice and sound quality were light and airy and allowed for me to feel consumed in the time period.
author, book review blogger, and freelance editor.
As a light, fairly quick (as audiobooks go, anyway) read, I'd recommend this.
I liked that the 'Cinderella' in this story wasn't the stereotypical wealthy-daughter-turned-servant. I was disappointed by the lack of character development.
Ms. Slade was a great choice to narrate this book. She handled what seemed to be typos as smoothly as could be expected and the different voices for the different characters were very well done, especially Darby’s.
Nope. It was wrapped up pretty well at the end. I wouldn't mind reading this author's version of other fariytales, though.
