liked it

I guess it is a retelling of the "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" or "The Polar Bear King" fairy tale, which I had never heard of before... to me it is Beauty and the Beast with a twist. It was a good read. The ending seemed to wrap it up a little too quickly for me, and with a little to much "back to reality." After all the action, I wasn't ready for it. I don't know what I would have changed though, so I shouldn't complain! :)

Update: After reading Jessica Day George's "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow", I like it so much better than East because it seemed to stick to more of a classical fairy tale format--it just seemed more believable. The troll princess and polar bears seemed more believable, too. So now I know what I would have changed in East. :)

~♥Alyssa♥~ Hi! I don't know you, but I was reading reviews of this book and I wanted to say that I agree that Jessica Day George's retelling is better.
