    Story
    "Don't bother"

    2-1/2 stars: Meh. For as short as it was, it felt like it dragged a bit. Also, Mina and Brody acted way older than their 15/16 years, in terms of romance, possessiveness, etc. They just didn't feel right to me. I didn't like Nan. She was completely obnoxious and no way I'd keep her for a best friend if I was Mina. The whole story felt like it was "off". I can't fault the the reader of the audio, though, who did a nice job (and who I've really enjoyed before reading other books). It's a shame because I had high hopes for this book (and series).

    "Eh.....it was ok"

    The story was OK. I was really disappointed in the way it ended, ruined the whole story for me. The premise of the story is a good one, but there were so many better ways it could have been fleshed out.

    Story
    "Annoying protagonist and unbeliveable relationship"
    What disappointed you about UnEnchanted?

    The protagonist of the story is annoying. Hard to find anything to "like" about her. Her uncalled for outbursts make her appear childish. This makes the continued interest of the too perfect love interest unbelievable and hard to sympathise with.

    The story had potential, but I just couldn't get through it felt as if the book had been written by a teenager. Perhaps okay for 10 year olds and down...

    Story
    "So NOT What I Expected!"
    Would you listen to UnEnchanted again? Why?

    Say what?! Seriously, I did not expect anything miraculous with this book, and never would I have expected that I would get hooked into this fun series! Mina is adorable as a determined Grime (Grimm), whose family has a curse on them created by non other than royal Fae. And while living in a fairy tale might seem grand, to Mina it's just another day of trouble. With her loved one's lives in the balance, it's all Mina can do to keep up with the curse, but with friends like her's, and a new ally, she just might break it!Unenchanted is definitely a light read, but I was so caught up in the story and characters, that I made a mad dash to order the next in the series! Was this book totally unique? Not really, but the plot, the sweet characters, the overall tone of the story immediately grabs your attention, and before you know it you're transported to a world of fairy tale creatures gone amok! Originally, within the first few chapters, I felt this book was generated towards a much younger audience, but it truly is for any age, and great entertainment! Also the narrator did a really good job with this series, but I will say that it did take me a chapter or two before I warmed up to her, and was totally engrossed from that point forward. Again, this is a light read, but it's massively fun and you'll be cheering Mina on!

    Story
    "Refreshing ideas and not disappointed!"

    I loved the story because it really took me through my hatred of all things Grim and didn't make the heroine out to be someone perfect and easily understood. I think it's interesting when you can come up with complex characters, and I hope to see in the next book I see some depth to the supporting characters as well as a twist and hopefully not just all tweeny romance! I kept secretly hoping to book would end up liking her and choosing to help her through based off of its sheer boredom of lack of action. I'm just looking for more imagination and for things to come alive. We all know what real life is like, and it's nice to see that the writer doesn't make everyone out to be the perfect person, but also showcases some of their weaknesses.

    Story
    "New concept"

    I love anything to do with fairy tales (i.e. Once Upon a Time) and this fits right in. The story has a little bit of ups and downs when it comes to plot but overall the idea is there and there so much room for growth. Can't wait for book 2

    Story
    "similar to the TV show Grimm, but not!"

    At first I thought it was VERY much like a teen version of "Grimm", but it has some GREAT twists and unique plot twists too.
    Totally hooked!

    Story
    "easy listening"
    If you could sum up UnEnchanted in three words, what would they be?

    great character development,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jared , He helps give facts slowly and that keeps the whole story unpredictable


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Mina's best friend. I like how Khristine changed her tone and voice to sound differently.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the time after everyone's memories were removed and Mina realized that she would not get her Happily Ever After.
