Like most people I saw Snow White when I was a child, but unlike most of my little friends I didn't like her much. I was riveted by the animation on screen & by the story, completely amazed even, but I was completely disappointed by the character of Snow White. I liked her kindness very much, & her pretty eyes but not much else. I found her dumb & weak, frail & useless. I was curious to read this book as it is the story of how the Wicked Queen comes into her wicked ways. It was a quick, interesting read if only because the story of Snow White is so classic. I found myself feeling sorry for the witch & sympathizing with her which is more than I can say for Snow White. It was surprisingly touching to read of her love for Snow White in the beginning. & I liked Snow White much more as a sweet child than a clueless grown up.
