An altered version of the classic Cinderella fairy-tale, Ella Enchanted is a marvelous book! Filled with well-written characters, places, and a good drawn-out timeline of her life, this is a must-read book for everyone! I have read this book so many times that the crease on the side is enormous!! I love how it really digs into her emotions, as well as how she deals with each situation and the "gift" that has been given to her. I have seen the movie version of this book, and although it is a good movie and is accurate in certain parts, it seems that they are two entirely different things. I highly recommend reading the book if you have only just seen the movie, because it is SOO much better, and I promise! You won't be dissapointed.
This was one of the best books i've ever read! It teaches you that you are strong enough to overcome even the most difficult obstacle in your path. . Ella broke the obedience curse and helped herself realize that she was stronger than she thought and that to love somebody else first you have to love yourself.
Ella Enchanted is a great fairy tale story. What I liked about this book is that they put alitttle bit of every classic fairy tale in this book like Cinderella and Snow White. This book is a bout a girl who has to take commands from people, she was cursed when she was a baby. But if someone asks her if she wants to do something then it's her choice. She also meets this prince who really likes her. She also has two evil step sisters that boss her around all the time. Her step mom is also mean too. She doesn't know untill later that her close friend is her fairy godmother. It's a pretty awsome book, I would recommend it to everyone. That's why I give it a 5.
I really enjoyed reading "Enchanted." It is a fairytale that mixes courage, determination, love, hope, and a bit of that fairytale magic into the plot. It is humorous and was fun to read!
A little bit after Ella was born, she was granted a wish. It was intended to be good, at least the wish giver thought it would, but the gift turned out to give Ella a lot of troubles. You see, the gift was of making Ella do whatever she was told. Now, Ella finds out she needs to figure out a way to break the spell. Will she be able to find out in time? Or will it be to late? Find out in this wonderful story!
This was one of the first books that I read and liked. A tale of a young woman with ambition, but a curse against her; loves a prince and has an evil stepmother and step sisters. This is a classic cinderella stroy with a few twists. This is an amazing read for any young girl.
Ella Enchanted is the story of a girl, Ella that gets the gift of obedience, and has to follow all instructions given to her. It is an awesome fantasy book that is fast paced and filled with love, action, and adventure. I would recommend it to girls of all ages.
This book is one of a kind. It puts Cinderlla, Sleeping beauty, and all the rest to shame. Ella can defend for herself unlike the others I mentioned, in this book she travels on her own to get a gift [[horrible as it is]] to be removed. Her gift is the gift of obedience and it isn't always that great for her. She travels great distance encounters many obsticles and still finds love in this book which is the one and truly thing that ends up setting her free for her spell. This book is enchanting and loveable!!! I encourage all readers to pick this book up and jump into the story because I know I've do it atleast 5 times. Kudos for Ella Enchanted!!!
When she is given the horrible gift of obedience by the fairy Lucinda, Ella must obey whatever anybody commands- including chopping her head off! Determined to find Lucinda and have her gift taken back, Ella goes on an adventure that turns out to be more that just a quest. Along the way she makes many new friends. Falling in love with one particular young man keeps her from trully deciding that she must not be with a companion, unless she can break the curse. A beautifully related story of the well known Cinderella, Gail Carson Levine gives her own twist to Ella and makes her a unique, funny and a brave heroine to the story.
This book was fantastic and was way better than the movie. It captures the readers interest very quickly and in my opinion, once you start, you can't put it down. It may be a cliche, but the style in which it is written makes it original in a good way.
I really enjoyed this book. This is the story of Ella. The story begins when Ella's mother dies. Shortly after the death of her mother, Ella's father realizes that he is low on money and decides to marry a wealthy widow so he can have a bit more money. So Ella gets a new stepmother and two new stepsisters. After that, things get a little crazy. What I haven't told you yet is that Ella is cursed, so to speak. When she was born a fairy laided a spell Ella, a gift the fairy called it, so that she would always be obedient. I've told you too much all ready. But if you like fairies, dwarves, ogers and other magical cretures, evil stepsisters, princes, danger, and happy endings this book is deffately for you.
