I can't decide whether I like Maguire or not. I somewhat enjoyed Wicked, it's interesting to say the least. Mirror Mirror was...something else. It's always interesting to see someone's interpretation of a well-known story, but Maguire just runs away with it. I wasn't a huge fan of this story.
From the writer of Wicked comes another fun read. The "true" story of Snow White. Reads like historical fiction intermingled with fantasy. Entertaining and fun. Familiar and off the wall.
I started off with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and thought it was very good once I was able to get into it. I decided to continue on with this one, not the greatest book I have read! I'm having trouble deciding if I like this author or not!
Between the Borgia's, the runaway storyline, it was mildly entertaining, but not a fantastic book.
A great re-telling of a folk tale classic. A grown-up fairy tale with so much in it that makes you stop and think. But, don't make the mistake I made and read it trying to find the similarities. Read it for what it is, fabulous.
I prefered some of his other books better but this one puts a new twist on the snow white story. As a wicked step mother myself, I appreciated the story and could realte to the characters.
