when i read this book i couldnt put it down so i reread it again.i have probably read it like 10 times now.it raelly is the best book gail carson levine.ella is a heroine so full of spirit and compasionate.
I first read Ella Enchanted when I was about 12. It was my favorite book for quite a while. So I was really excited when I found out that a movie was coming out. Until I saw the trailer. I can't believe Gail sold out, because now it will be remembered for that awful girly movie instead of the great book.
Anyway, back to the book. It's another modern Cinderella story, and the best one I've read so far. I'd highly recommend it to female readers aged 11+, because I don't think boys would really get into it!
I think all teenage girls would love it. Don't get put off by the movie, the book is brilliant!
Have you read this book? If you answered no, get off your chair and walk straight to the nearest bookstore and BUY it!!!
Why? This book is awesome! Who ever thought that obedience could turn into a never-ending curse? Who ever thought that there could be MORE mean stepmothers and stepsisters? Who ever thought that there would be such things as friendly elves, and fun giants?
Gail Levine tells of an extraordinary journey, starting just like any 'ole fairy tale. I congratulate the author on such a fine job!
This book is about a girl names Ella who is cursed with obediance. Her fairy godmother cannot lift this curse and once her mother dies her merchent father decides to send her off to finishing school with some horrid fellow people. There Ella makes her first good friend and has to stuggle with fufilling the commands of everyone even though they do not know about the curse. After Ella escapes from there she meets orgres. elves, faires and giants as well as remeeting the prince.
This remakeis of Cinderella is funny and enjoyable. I reccomend this to everyone.
This book is a great read for all girls who love fairy tale re-tellings.
Ella Enchanted is a re-telling of Cinderella in which Ella is cursed to always be obedient. She must follow all orders given to her at all times. She has to follow all directions given to her no matter what. Can she break the curse and marry the prince? Well, you'll have to read and find out!
this is no ordinary fairytale.
yes it has all the familar elements:loveable female lead, ugly step sisters, a fairy god mother and a prince charming.
yet even as it is told in true cinderella style it has a modern feel to it. no it doesn't take place in today's world and you proberbly can't find magic glass slippers in reality, but the writer expresses real emotions that fairytales lack. emotions that the reader can relate to .
