My favorite character in the book is probably Belle.Read more ›
The writing is like what can be found in a teenage journal so I'd say this is a tween novel. But who wants to crush the hopes of young girls? It's fun and campy but also eye rolling. It reminds me of a reality TV train wreck. I knew it wasn't deep literature but I also couldn't put it down!
My absolute all-time favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast (the absolute zenith of love conquering all). In Desperately Ever After, Belle and her Beast (Donner) take front stage, when Belle learns that the animal in her prince has not been tamed. Rapunzel, Cinderella, Dawn, Snow White, and Penelopea rally round their friend, sheltering her from the paparazzi while she sorts her life out.
In the telling of Belle's crisis we learn that our beloved heroines are more than perfectly primped characters. Rapunzel has a vicious streak in her. Established as the socialite to watch, she unleashes her anger, from being locked in a tower, mercilessly. Cinderella's life with Aaron (Prince Charming) runs smoothly thanks to her over-achieving tendency. Dawn is just clueless, but that's to be expected given she's slept the last three hundred years away. Penny, notarized by the Princess and the Pea tale, has an overbearing mother who she is planning a royal gala for. Then there is Snow White, who we think is okay, until we get to the very end (and that's what serials are for)!
I have to admit to being quite disappointed in Donner, aka The Beast. I suppose it's every girls fantasy to have her love be so powerful that it can transform even the scariest of beings. But then I guess that is where fiction and fact take a fork in the road.
An enjoyable read. Think fairytale on steroids; colorful, over-the-top moments, that take us just beyond the reach of believability, but leave us quite happy that we let ourselves be catapulted from reality.

I really enjoyed the idea that the "Fairy tale ending" isn't always roses and sunshine. The idea that the princesses are normal women with normal problems is kind of refreshing. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Kindle Customer
I didn't care for the tone of this book at all. If you find b*tchy, nasty gossip mag meanness and catty, awful women behaving badly is funny, you might think this is hilarious. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Shirley U Jest
