I cannot believe all of the good reviews of this book? Good heck, why???? I think I am a pretty easily entertained reader. I generally enjoy most books, and love many! I really enjoy a lot of young adult lit. But the only thing worse than the story (flat, contrived and painfully boring) is the narrator. Her voice is just grating. And I think much older than the character is. This was truly painful to listen to and for sure, I stopped because I don't hate myself enough to finish.
The main character is petulant and whiny. I love a good strong female character, but nothing about her is authentic to either a real person or the period in which this is intended to be. And Cinderella is beautiful, we GET IT! Holy hell, how many times do you think you can mention how beautiful she is? Really?? Listen, we as readers almost always automatically envision beautiful people playing the roles of most main characters (unless otherwise is developmentally necessary to the plot). Speaking of plot, was there one in this book?
I don't want a refund; I want the last 3 hours of my life back. I feel robbed.
