it was ok
Read from June 14 to 16, 2012

I was so excited and looking forward to this book. When I finally got my hands on it and finished reading it, I was extremely disappointed. All of the elements were there to make a good story, but over all, the finished product fell short, because it was lacking one important element.

I love fantasy. I love fairytales, and I loved how all of the tales such as Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk among others were entwined. However, what made this book so disappointing was the lack of character development. Both of the main characters were very bland and depressing. They just weren't fleshed out enough, especially the prince. I wanted to root for him, but for most of the book, I just did not care about him although every other chapter was in his point of view. The female lead, Sunday, was also very whiny and annoying at times. I found some of her sisters much more likeable. The antagonists also lacked development.

As I mentioned, all of the elements were there to make a good story, but the lack of character development made this book fall apart in my opinion.
