This book had so much potential. I wanted to love it. It was good and I think fans of the movie will enjoy the book. Three stars for poor character development and very low writing standards.

I should give it four stars if just because Snow White, in this fairy tale, is not some helpless princess waiting to be rescued by Prince Charming. She is strong, fearless and pretty much ready to take anything on to reach help and avenge her father's death. When she learns that her childhood friend, William, and his father, an ally of her father's, managed to escape when Ravenna, the evil queen, took over the land, she breaks away from the dungeon where she has been locked up in order to reach them.

Eric, the Huntsman, has been struck by tragedy and is led to the Dark Forest to kill Snow White by an impossible promise. His journey is one of the better parts of this book- regaining his pride and strength after all that mattered to him had been taken away and he had become a self-destructive drunk.

I don't want to give away too many spoilers.

Will Eric become Snow White's true love? Or will that fall to her childhood friend, William? Will she escape or will Queen Ravenna have her heart cut from her chest, cementing Ravenna's eternal youth and power? Will she be able to win back her Father's kingdom, destroying Ravenna's evil hold over everyone?

This is no Disney fairy tale. There is lots of bloody violence and dark magic. There is also love, valor and true courage portrayed here.

My biggest disappointment with this book is that there was a lack of character development. Snow White's character was fairly well developed, as one would expect- but Eric had so much more potential and I wanted to see more of William.

This had the potential to be a really fantastic book. Maybe its because I am an author myself, but I was very disappointed with the storytelling. Descriptions were relegated to "gray" all the time. Emotions and events that could have been explored were glossed over. Battle scenes were left to, "Eric dodged every blow sent his way." Snow White was angry and filled with loathing, which is out of character from what I know of her (and granted, I don't know everything!). I was glad that I had seen the movie mid-way through reading this, because otherwise, if I had read this first, I might never have watched it. I feel that this was a waste of the money I spent. I was hoping for more insight into the characters. :\

Snow White & the Huntsman was one of my most anticipated films of the summer, and a theater-going experience that left me with decidedly mixed feelings. I loved the visuals and the hints of a unique and fresh take on the Snow White story thanks to charismatic performances by Charlize Theron as Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman. But overall I felt the film was decidedly lacking in the plotting and character development areas -- with so much potential only partially realized on-screen, I was left wanting more -- and with that aim in mind I decided to investigate the movie novelization. Film novelizations are very iffy propositions, more often than not a slap-dash attempt to capitalize on a movie's popularity. For the most part this SWATH adaptation is a mediocre work of fiction, falling into the same traps as its filmic inspiration -- too enamoured with Snow's world instead of the story's characters. But at best this slim volume offers some interesting additional tidbits of insight into the Huntsman and the Queen, and leaves me hoping for a more character-driven, satisfying second outing, if/when the SWATH sequel comes to pass.

The novelization offers some background information on Ravenna and her brother Finn -- apparently her coup against Snow's father was in retaliation for his attack on her family. Interestingly enough in the film there is no sense that Snow's father was guilty of this crime, no concept of a blood-feud, but it does add an interesting contextual shade to the Snow/Ravenna relationship. The novelization also (thankfully) white-washes at the least the incestuous overtones between Ravenna and her brother Finn, explaining away their almost "mystically" close relationship as a result of their mother's powerful curse.

Snow White and the Huntsman is an easy read. I found the characters believable. I particularly enjoyed Eric (The Huntsman). Snow White was a breath of fresh air as a brave warrior princess. I was a little disappointed in the Dukes son, William, who seemed more a little boy than a love interest for Snow. The "Wicked Step Mother" was intriguing because the book gave us a reason for her hatred towards the king. I sometimes felt sorry for all that happened to her as a young girl and her brother "Finn" who became her life long champion, all be it twisted brother that he was! The dwarfs were darker than the Disney version, but that made the book better.I would have liked a little more romance, but, after all,it is a fairy tale. I could not put the book down and read it in just a few hours. Young girls will enjoy it too. The Dark Forrest was amazing and I am anxious to see the movie. The ending was a surprise to me, and I'm hoping for a second book.
