Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by this short novel. It was different and interesting. It was also unlike anything I have read before. I loved that Snow White has a sister, Rose Red. I love that both sisters live with their mother. I love that she is teaching her daughters to be strong, self-reliant women.
I loved all the characters involved especially Rose Red and the Huntsman. Rose was a strong willed, adventurous girl whose middle name should have been Moxie, not Red. Always in her sister's shadow, she was a bit disheartened but did not fault Snow. She loved her sister. The Huntsman was everything a dark romantic hero should be. Mysterious, callous, courageous, caring, protective. There were a few twists in this story, all unexpected by me. My favorite (of course) dealing with matters of the heart. What I really enjoyed the most in this fairy tale was how the sisters helped each other. They relied and supported each other.
I know I will search out other retold fairy tales in the future. Especially if they are as well thought-out and written as Snow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the Huntsman . I really enjoyed it.
Snow White and Rose Red live with their mother in a village that benefits from the almost magical growth of roses around it. Roses are the center of commerce and life. Every year there is a festival where roses are laid in front of the door of the most beautiful girl, and of course, every year Snow White gets the most roses.
But there is more than meets the eye going on within the Snow White's and Rose Red's little family and within the village itself. As Rose Red turns fourteen she begins to come into magical powers, powers that run in her family and that she never knew about. Things become more complicated when a beast starts stalking young women, strangers arrive, and her mother leaves the village to seek help. Snow White and Rose Red are left with many questions, including doubt about the beast that is hiding in the woods and their good friend, William.
My one complaint about this book (I've seen a lot of reviews that say it should have been longer, and yes, there is enough here that a novel would have probably been a satisfying read, but I actually liked it as a novella too), is the point of view jumping.Read more ›
