A girl who obeys all sounds interesting but to have to endure it is not an easy task Ella goes through. Given the gift of obedience since birth she obeys all orders but Ella fights it every step of the way. Her struggles will lead her to a prince, a finishing school and all the way to a ball.
First time reading this book I would have been in the seventh grade. I was given a choice and picked Ella Enchanted randomly. This book is one of my favorites and can be read over and over, and I have. I love Ella’s character as she struggles for her way out but never reaches it, of course not until the end.
Char is the prince, Hattie and Olive the stepsisters all create this story to be fun and entertaining in a very sweet way. I love how the ogres and giants all have their own language. And how the fairies are real with magic pulsing in their bodies.
There is love but it is innocent love and rather refreshing for a young adult book. Gail Carson Levine creates the fantasy in this fairy tale adapted from Cinderella. The movie that is based on it is true to the book and fun to watch.
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine is a unique fairy tale that will make you believe in miracles.
