Publisher's Summary

Mina Grime is unlucky, unpopular and uncoordinated; that is until she saves her crush's life on a field trip, changing her high school status from loser to hero overnight. But with her new found fame brings misfortune in the form of an old family curse come to light. Mina is a descendant from the Brothers Grimm and has inherited all of their unfinished fairy tale business which includes trying to outwit a powerful Story from making her its' next fairy-tale victim. To break the fairy tale curse on her family and make these deadly occurrences stop, Mina must finish the tales until the very Grimm end.

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.

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. <br/><br/>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...

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!

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).

Omg

I legit balled at the end! Not to mention I was so upset when it ended! I hope there's a sequel! If not please write one! It only told of three tales! I want more! I wanna know what happened with mina and brody! Does she survive all of the tales? What happens with Sarah and Charlie? What happened with jared? Does he help her again? Gasp! Does he even remember her???!!! These questions are burning inside of me! I need to know! I'm probably missing so much detail! In fact I'm relistening right now!

fairy tale

The story premise was a good one. The writing needed instruction. i didnt finish it. A good place to learn a lot (including Steven Kings style of writing) is your local RWA.

Grimm Fairy Tales have never been so good!

This new twist on timeless classics has sparked a new life into the world of The Brothers Grimm! There is a whirlwind of excitement and adventure, twists and turns and plenty of heroics from the amazing heroine Menia and her BFF Nan. Together they make it through any obstacle thrown in front of them and become stronger together. Looking forward to the next installment and can't wait to hear what comes next!

A light, fun read.

I think I'll look for more in the series. Twisted ending makes me want to know how she will go on.
