Charming YA retelling of Cinderella, with some imaginative twists.
I enjoyed it thoroughly! WrensReads Review:
This book is so hard for me to review because I love every single thing about it, but hate every single thing about that bloody movie.
Like seriously, who decided to only use the names and the curse and rewrite everything else for the movie? Why did we need a talking snake and an evil uncle and a fan group for the prince? Wasn't evil Hattie enough?
SERIOUSLY THIS STORY IS ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS AND PERFECT AND THE MOVIE RUINED IT, I CAN NOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH FOR YOU
There is no need for a fan club for the prince.
There is no need for an evil uncle trying to take the throne or a big giant talking snake that literally has no purpose but to make you feel like you are watching a liv At Birth, Ella Is Inadvertently Cursed By An Imprudent Young Fairy Named Lucinda, Who Bestows On Her The "gift" Of Obedience Anything Anyone Tells Her To Do, Ella Must Obey Another Girl Might Have Been Cowed By This Affliction, But Not Feisty Ella: "Instead Of Making Me Docile, Lucinda's Curse Made A Rebel Of Me Or Perhaps I Was That Way Naturally" When Her Beloved Mother Dies, Leaving Her In The Care Of A Mostly Absent And Avaricious Father, And Later, A Loathsome Stepmother And Two Treacherous Stepsisters, Ella's Life And Wellbeing Seem To Be In Grave Peril But Her Intelligence And Saucy Nature Keep Her In Good Stead As She Sets Out On A Quest For Freedom And Selfdiscovery As She Tries To Track Down Lucinda To Undo The Curse, Fending Off Ogres, Befriending Elves, And Falling In Love With A Prince Along The Way Yes, There Is A Pumpkin Coach, A Glass Slipper, And A Happily Ever After, But This Is The Most Remarkable, Delightful, And Profound Version Of Cinderella You'll Ever Read
Gail Carson Levine's Examination Of Traditional Female Roles In Fairy Tales Takes Some Satisfying Twists And Deviations From The original Ella Is Bound By Obedience Against Her Will, And Takes Matters In Her Own Hands With Ambition And Verve Her Relationship With The Prince Is Balanced And Based On Humor And Mutual Respect; In Fact, It Is She Who Ultimately Rescues Him Ella Enchanted Has Won Many Welldeserved Awards, Including A Newbery Honor Such a cute story, it was a lot of fun! Ella Enchanted (Ella Enchanted #1), Gail Carson Levine
Ella Enchanted published in 1997, has won many welldeserved awards, including a Newbery Honor.
At birth, Ella is inadvertently cursed by an imprudent young fairy named Lucinda, who bestows on her the "gift" of obedience.
Anything anyone tells her to do, Ella must obey.
Another girl might have been cowed by this affliction, but not feisty Ella: "Instead of making me docile, Lucinda's curse made a rebel of me.
Or perhaps I was that way naturally.
When her beloved mother dies, leaving her in the care of a mostly absent and avaricious father, and later, a loathsome stepmother and two treacherous stepsisters, Ella's life and wellbeing seem to be in grave peril.
But her intelligence and saucy nature keep her in good stead as she sets out on a quest for freedom and selfdiscovery as she tries to t Now I know why people made such a fuss when the movie came out.
I watched the movie first, so I had no idea how utterly wrong everything was.
It totally is not like the book.
Just slap on the names and the curse and that's where the similarities end.
I must say the book is MUCH better than the movie.
The style of the writing was kind of weird for me, but not in a bad way.
It's not that it was too fast paced or anything, but I noticed there wasn't a lot of padding or fanfare before events would happen, which I usually expect from fantasy books.
The writing style worked in this story since it seemed to fit the main character to a tee.
I absolutely loved the story.
It's a great way of showing how the only o Ella Enchanted is like a koala.
A big, soft, cute koala.
And if you mess with it, it'll use it's big, sharp, notsocute claws to tear your face off.
It's just a cute little fairy tale for teenage girls about a silly little world.
Accept it for what it is.
Leave it at that.
Don't delve any futher.
Don't consider it from a feminine perspective, don't rationalize it from a historical standpoint, don't try to analyze is for hidden metaphors or literary value.
Just read, rinse, repeat and move on.
❌ My advice to you: The movie and the book are two very separate and different things.
So when you start reading this book, don't compare it with the movie.
Don't even think about the movie at all while you're reading this.
Do that, and you'll enjoy this book immensely.
On the day she was born, Ella of Frell was given the gift of obedience by the foolish and careless fairy, Lucinda.
It was a gift.
Well, for starters.
Ella, Hold your tongue
Ella Enchanted" by Gail Carson Levine, which takes an untraditional approach to retelling the story of Cinderella.
The novel addresses several specific feminist issues, specifically negotiating and fighting the burden of obedience, the importance of female friendships and, of course, learning to save yourself.
My daughters have watched the Disney movie Ella Enchanted many times and loved it immensely.
They are enamored by the Disney princess genre, even princesses who do not fit nicely into the company's traditional definition of princess.
Until last week, I had never viewed the film with them, being that I hardly fit the definition of girly girl myself, often opting for whatever sporting event is in season.
I enjoyed the concept of a medieval Cinderella who is not necessarily forced to do back breaking work for an evil stepmother but to be obedient to her and whoever else orders her around.
Seeing the film version, lead me to this Newberry award winning book by Gail Carson Levine.
At birth, Ella of Prell is gifted by the fairy Lucinda to always be obedient at all costs.
Growing up, she once had to eat an entire birthday cake, nearly relinquish
