Ella Enchanted

by Gail Carson Levine

This is an amazing read. It's based on the cinderella story but twisted around a ton. If you didn't like the movie, let me tell you: it's way different!

I agree with you, Caroline. This book is AMAZING! It is one of my favorite books. I love all the adventure! 


I also like Fairest, but Ella Enchanted is a little bit better.

I really love this book. i also love the movie, even though its so different. it's got more romance, so its better if you like that kind of stuff.

I've read this book so many times I lost count.  I love how she mixes her own story with the classic Cinderella.

The movie SICKED ME OUT!!!! The boyfriend in the magic book? The evil uncle? The talking snake? The forced-2-sing elves who wanted to be lawyers? The singing at the giant's party? (Ooo, now I had to leave the room for that.) The horrific dancing scene at the end??? (I shut the TV off at that.) The "char fan club"? GROW UP, HOLLYWOOD!!!!!!Yell

I know! I had to mute it when she was singing at the giant's party because I was so embarassed for her!!! The talking Snake!? That totally freaked me out!! Evil uncle!? Come on, someone has to figure out something different than the evil family member!!! And that Char fan club was just stupid!!! I was shocked anyone can ruin such a good book in such a horrible way!!!!Yell
