John Lord I agree, I used to like fairy tales, and would love something gripping, but most bore me to tears, like The Language of Thorns, Wintersong, and A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Do any retellings not bore you to tears?

Bara You didn't find any romance in this story because there is none. SW may have kissed the witch but it wasn't out of love, she simply broke the curse. She may find the witch physically attractive but at the same time she's repulsed because the girl/woman reminds her of her own terrible stepmother.

Miranda Reads Yeahhh.... but from the way it was marketed did make it seem like there was supposed to be romance. Sigh.

Rusty Grey Great review Miranda!! Hope your next Gaiman read is better . 😀


message 12: by Amber (new)

Amber I liked it. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it. There are tons of other Neil Gaiman books to enjoy. Like the graveyard book is his version of the Jungle book and stardust is pretty good too.

I really liked the Graveyard Book and Stardust, though Coraline will always be a personal favorite :) Do you have a fave Gaiman?


message 15: by Bara (new)

Bara Graveyard book and Good Omens are stellar. Coraline is great if not a personal favorite. I didn't like Stardust at all. Too dull and tedious for me. On the other hand I really like The Sleeper and the spindle. Oh and UnFortunately the milk. It's childish but funny.


message 16: by Miranda (new)

Miranda Reads Yes, yes yes! I liked the illustrated version of Stardust - that book was something different :)

I really liked American Gods as well (though i think the sequel kinda sucked). And good omens was hilarious!


message 17: by Amber (new)

Amber I love the Graveyard book. I think that is my fave Gaiman book.

Miranda Reads That was a really good one :)
