Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“She’d always been told her life depended on staying in her rooms, and hadn’t thought about what lay outside her door, knowing only it had the potential to be fatal to her.” Not until her late teens does Rapunzel get a computer for her studies—and then the real world emerges for the rather clueless young beauty. Kept prisoner in a tiny apartment within her mother’s mansion, the girl believes she has an immunodeficiency disorder and would wither away in the outside world. Of course, the reader knows that Mother Gothel is up to something, what with the story’s prologue and the diabolical hints. When Rapunzel reaches out on Facebook (where else?) to the local high school, she friends a handsome student intrigued by this sheltered mystery girl and determined to get to her. A suspenseful mix of romance, adventure, and dark arts, Bennett’s fun take on the fairy tale might have been a bit more subtle with the bad guys’ missteps, but still compels readers to want to find out Rapunzel’s backstory as much as she does. Grades 6-9. --Anne OMalley

This is my first experience with a modern day fairy tale retelling, and I have to say, if the others are even half as good as Rapunzel Untangled was I need to start reading them all up. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I loved it! I thought it was cute, clever, romantic, and so interesting, and Cindy Bennett even had a few twists up her sleeve. Rapunzel Untangled is a great book!

Rapunzel lives in a tower completely isolated and she has long flowing blonde hair. But you knew all that, right? She can't leave her tower because she has a severe immune disease and any contact with outside germs can be fatal for her. I thought it was awesome that her first introduction to the outside world was through facebook. How fitting in this technical age. She meets Fane on facebook and honestly, talking to him was just the catalyst that Rapunzel needed. She started to become more curious and interested in the world around her.

I just loved her and Fane's chats on facebook. I thought they were absolutely hilarious, and I loved all the pop culture and movie references. It kind of reminded me of the quick wit that I love so much in Meg Cabot books. (which as you all know, is HIGH praise from me) He is a great guy. He really took everything in stride. I thought the little romance between Rapunzel and Fane was adorable. Every time he got concerned with germs for her, it made me smile. There is just something about the two of them that works so well.

This book is not only the "can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over- the-fence, World Series kind of stuff," (two points for whoever can name this movie!) but it also has a touch of magic. And we all know that magic can lead to some unexpected twists.

Earlier I wasn't really a big fan of `Retellings'. Then I read Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine and Jane by April Lindner and I changed my mind. When I came across this book on NetGalley I just had to request it. I mean who doesn't like Rapunzel and who hasn't seen Tangled? To my surprise, my request was granted and I quickly delved into the book.

Right from the foreword by the author and the prologue you know that this is going to be a darker version of the fairy tale.

A seventeen year old Rapunzel is restricted within the boundaries of her suite rooms because of rare disease that makes her vulnerable to any form of germ/virus/bacteria. Hence she has only ever known her mother and the world through her books. She had been made to believe that she was a part of a prophecy and that she was a vital part as her magic hair would one day help save the world. It's in human nature to be curious about the unknown and Rapunzel is no exception. She is curious about the world outside her window. Thankfully, she has a computer and internet as a necessary part of her education and that turns into a source to quench her thirst to know more about the rest of the world. One day she discovers facebook and Fab Fane through it and her own little world changes forever. Fab Fane introduces her to Lord of the Rings, Pizza, M&Ms, sneaking out and encourages her curiosity about not only the world outside but also about her own life.

It was interesting to see a modern day Rapunzel who had access to the internet and used it to her advantage. The characters were really well developed and the modern day Rapunzel retained most of her original charm - the innocence, the beauty and the certain fragility about her.

The author tries to mix magic and immune disorders in an unsuccessful story that is about 100 pages too long. The villain's motivation is not strong enough, and the ending is hasty and somewhat laughable in its implausibility.

Most of the book is a tired retread of other recent Rapunzel retellings, but the worst part is how the heroine weakens as the story progresses. No strong women appear in this story.

Do you remember the fairy-tale of Rapunzel with her long flowing blonde hair and the evil witch who kidnapped her and locked her away in a tower and there she remained until the prince came and rescued her ?
Now readers, get ready for a modern and contemporary version of the tale with Cindy C. Bennett as she takes us into the life of Rapunzel Goleth or to her friends on Facebook - RG.
Ever since Rapunzel was little , all she has ever know was the tower and has had it repeated to her over and over again - the prophecy and the fact that she cannot leave the tower as she will get sick. Life goes on for Rapunzel until one day whilst misusing her computer she discovers Facebook and joins Facebook. On Facebook, she friends a guy named Fab Fane Anderson. Fane and Rapunzel start talking and soon Fane introduces via Facebook messenger - a whole new and undiscovered world for Rapunzel. Soon whilst Rapunzel's mother is away on business , the pair start hanging out more and more. Soon though, Rapunzel discovers that what she knows and what is the truth isn't lining up with reality and soon she will discover a life she never imagined ?
Who really is Rapunzel and why is she being locked away in the tower and not allowed access to the "real world"?
Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C. Bennett is a fun and contemporary look at the old Children's fairytale Rapunzel.
