This book, though another version of the cinderella story we all know and love, goes way beyond that. The story expands the traditional tale by giving funny and very charming explanations to many of the situations of the original tale. Such as why does the glass slipper only fit cinderella? why does she do everything her evil stepfamily tells her to do? and some other questions.
This is an excellent book for people of all ages, and promises to keep you laughing until the end.
Now I haven't watched the movie, but a friend of mine told me it's not like the book and it really isn't. Somebody must have thought it was too boring so they changed up the script a bit, because she didn't fight anybody.
I loved her relationship with Prince Charmont (are all the guys in a Cinderella story named Charm-something?). They were friends at first and you could tell he liked her, but then se had to break it off with him, that was sad.
Ella could never live in this day and age that's for sure. A whole lot of things would have went wrong in her life by now.
It must be really hard to be Ella , she is cursed with a spell of obedience. No matter how hard she tries to disobey her orders she always dose them. But one day she can brake the spell and live happily ever after!

Ella Enchanted was a fantastic book. If you like fairy tales, this is the book for you. I would also recomend Snow,also, if you like Ella Enchanted.
I would have to say,though, I am very disapointed with the movie. I hate it when they add a million unnecasary things to the movie that were not in the book. See the movie anyway, but I beg you to read the book first!
I love this book!!! It's sorta like cinderella with the step mother and such. But I never could've thought up anything like this. I mean, a girl who was cursed to do anything anyone says. I cant imagine that. I almost cried at the end though
This book was great!!!! When I read it I felt like I was in the book !!!! I really liked all the adventures in it. I would put it in my top 5 books of all time. Ella is brave and obedient. She seems like a good person. Gail Carson Levine is a good author.
This book is like a version of Cinderella. It is a great book that I have read a zillion times. It's about a teenage girl named Ella whos mother dies and father has never been a part of her life until the death. The cook, Mandy, a goodfriend of Ellas and her mother and takes care of her. When Ella's father returns to take care of her he brings another woman and her two daughters. They get married and send all three girls to boarding school where...well I guess you have to read it to find out the rest!
