review 1: I have read many adaptions on fairy tale stories which is starting to make a stronger appearance in the book world. I love this. Fairy tales always make for good reading. Plus I like to see how creative the author can get with these tales. However I have to say that I really liked the way that Mrs. Blackwell put her own twist on this classic tale of Sleeping Beauty. It did not feel like a remake but like the original. I like how Mrs. Blackwell made Beauty human like as if she really did exist in this way. There was not a lot of fancy gimmicks with this book just a story of love...parents love and true love. Of course there was also a happy ending with a bit of a twist. I look forward to reading more books by this author and hope the author writes more fairy tale ... moreones.
review 2: I stumbled upon this book, while looking for something to read. I was pleasantly surprised! It's the 'true' story of Sleeping Beauty. Not the fairy tale we are all familiar with, but the alleged truth of Beauty's real life as a princess, from the prospective of her handmaiden. I truly enjoyed this book. It was, at times, brutal, but in all aspects, it rang with sincerity. I will never look at Sleeping Beauty in the same way as I used to. I would recommend this book to everybody. Ms. Blackwell tells a believable, thoughtful story. less

I enjoyed this book, but there were some parts that dragged. It was good, but not great!
Honestly, I just couldn't get into the voice of this book. Couldn't finish it.
The most dull, whiny, depressing narration I've ever read.
A bit slow and wordy at times, but it was ok.
Love this book!
