's review

it was ok

I said I wasn't going to read any more of Dickerson's fairy tales; at least, I'm pretty sure I did. However, this book is a retelling of the Goose Girl fairy tale! I had to read it! How is a girl to resist that?
Unfortunately...I should have found a way. The story was pleasant enough to finish but quite shallow. The characters fall in love by pining over appearances. They repeat, and repeat, and repeat the same things and lines over and over to themselves and to each other.
Overall, the book was pleasant but left me with no strong emotions, just a general annoyance at perfect characters and simplified Christianity.
Yet at the same time, I still kind of want to read the book that preceded this one?

Melani Crone I read The Noble Servant and really liked it! I guess everyone has different book preferences. 😄

Lauren I totally agree with your review. a disappointment.

Resident Your review is spot on. For an excellent version of The Goose Girl, I recommend Shannon Hale's retelling of the story.
