Dewitched: The Untold Story of the Evil Queen is a fun, funny, yet tender spin on what happened to the evil queen after the poisoned apple. For the first time we get to know the Evil Queen (Jane Yvel) as a person outside of the fairy tale, but still in the fairy tale world and follow her on her journey towards self-discovery. This cross between satire, spoof and poignant quest is definitely a book for the grownup set. The best adjectives I can use to describe this book are delicious and dishy. I read it all in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. It's the perfect read for the beach, an airplane or anytime you want pure enjoyment.

Dewitched is a direct continuation of the Snow White myth, but with the most breathless of twists -- this time, the protagonist is Jane Yvel, the Evil Queen herself. After being put on trial and humiliated for her crimes, Jane is propelled into an incredible quest for meaning, love and redemption. And what a journey it is! As she narrates her tale in the first person, Jane proves to be a compelling character -- smart, sardonic and armed with a sympathetic backstory.

I will steer clear of spoiler territory, but let me just say that author E.L. Sarnoff has crafted one heck of an delicious tale here. It's a biting satire that puts a fresh new spin on an age-old villainness. And, as an added plus, Sarnoff also throws in a sprinkling of appearances by classic characters -- everyone from the Huntsman to Pinocchio. When competing personalities collide, the result is funny, melancholic, surprising and provocative -- all at once!

I really enjoyed reading Dewitched, and you will too. I can't recommend this enough -- it's a wonderful read geared that you should pick up if you like their fairy tales to be hip, mature and different.

I loved this book! I was watching Snow White and the Huntsman, and wondering how much grimmer fairytales can get, when I stumbled upon this little gem. This is a chick lit version of the Evil Queen from Snow White, and it's as funny as funny gets! I LOLed at so many places and was delighted at the character arcs. I swear - every character had a character arc that was fulfilling, and there were plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you surprised.

This is a wonderful book!! Bring on the movie, I say!

I bought this book for my wife, and she enjoyed it so much she told me to read it. Now her taste in books and mine are radically different, so I figured I would humor her and read a few pages. Darn if this did not turn out to be one of those books that we both agreed on. It was funny, "wicked", and a little twisted as well.

We had all the characters from every fairytale and children's novel in the last 2000 years, including Capt'n Hook and Cinderella's evil step-sisters. We get an idea of how Jane, the Evil Queen, became that way, and how she could redeem herself.

This was a fun read and I will read the next book in the series.

It is billed as "Wickedly funny, darkly shocking, and deeply moving." Being a fan of Elle Lothlorien books, I was really looking forward to this one. I liked how it began with the retelling of Snow White, but then the story drags on and on with Jane's punishment/recovery. There were characters added from different fairy tale/stories that were all "damaged souls" and in need of repair, but the premise sounds better than the actuality. It seemed like pages and pages of Dr. Phil goes to Faraway. Almost to the point of being preachy. Blame the alcoholic father and the narcissistic mother, you're not responsible for your own actions. You just don't know the power of love. Love makes everything all better. I think these were the actual residents of Lalaland!
There are words added or missing which you have to go back and figure out, and that takes away from the story. I did not find it wickedly funny, darkly shocking, or even shallowly moving. I would hope living in Lalaland would be more interesting than this! Sorry, but in my opinion this book is not worth the effort.

Cute story about the evil queen in rehab for her addiction to evil. Fun in a fractured-fairy-tale way. Great quick read.

I liked the concept and there were many clever, sly references to other fairytale characters woven throughout the story. Overall, though, the writing could have been stronger. I'm torn as to whether I care enough to read the sequel or just let it go...

‘Dewitched’ is the story of the evil queen from Snow White.

I thought the concept of the villainous queen – Jane Yvel - being forced into rehab to mend her evil ways was very interesting and original. This is written in first person from the queen’s point of view as she slowly begins to see the error of her ways. Much of the humour comes from Jane’s reactions to the different therapies, situations she is put in, and the other characters she meets. I found this brilliantly funny. I also enjoyed and was surprised by the various other fairy tale characters as they showed up.

The story itself is very well constructed and has a good few twists to it, some more predictable than others. I found it thoroughly entertaining from start to finish and I didn’t want to put the book down so I ended up reading it when I should have been doing other things which I don’t regret it at all! I completely loved this book and have already gotten the sequel which I will be reading when I have plenty of time to sit down and devour it in one sitting.

This book takes well known fairy tale characters, a good dose of humour and an excellent, entertaining story and mixes them up to create a captivating read. Highly recommended!
