Reviewed By Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite
Do the typical fairy tale endings annoy you because you think they are unrealistic? Do you find them too perfect? Then Unhappily Ever After: A Fairy Tale for Grown-ups by Lucinda E Clarke might just be the book for you. Nothing is perfect in these fairy tales. Cinderella is a rather unsightly character whose outside looks match her rotten inside. She wants a divorce from Prince Charming, just before the annual ball. But they are not the only couples with problems. Sleeping Beauty is a nymphomaniac and Snow White refuses to let her husband get anywhere close to her. There are schemes to get a princess married to a fake prince, but then real princes turn up and nobody believes them! 

I admit I am one of those people who finds the endings of fairy tales annoying because they are so far removed from how relationships really work. There is only very rarely a happily ever after in real life, and Unhappily Ever After: A Fairy Tale for Grown-ups by Lucinda E Clarke is a book that shows it. The book continues where the fairy tales stop - the fairy tales do not want you to know what happens after the happy ending. If you have ever wondered whether characters like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty really live happily forever - or wished they would be miserable at some stage - then this novel is for you. It is very entertaining and shows that you do not need happy endings to have a good story. But will an unhappily ever after lead to a happy ending for some? You'll need to read this to find out. Divorce in fairyland! Who would have thought?
