3.0 out of 5 stars Review courtesy of SteppingOutOfThePage 19 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
I confess that I'm a little wary of reading books based on movies as it seems a little unnatural - surely movies should be based on books? Still, I wanted to know what all the fuss was about surrounding Snow White and the Huntsman. To be honest, I lack the concentration span for films, so it was actually great to see that a novel was being released - I can use my own imagination and take it at my own pace.... but now, after reading the book, I do want to go and see the film version!

I have read some fantastic fairytale retellings (Cinder) and some not so great ones, so it was interesting to see what this was like. Snow White is one of the most popular fairytales that I think almost everyone knows about. It's a little dangerous to mess around with something the world knows and loves, but I think that for the most part, the changes worked out okay.

The story was vivid and it felt as though there was a lot of adventure, even though it wasn't particularly fast-paced. I think that if the pace had been a bit more rapid, it would have been more effective - I think that the blurb of this book makes it sound a little more action packed than it is, but the book remained simple, perhaps so that it is more accessible for younger readers.

There wasn't really anything complex about this book - it was relatively short and a quick read, so there wasn't much room for depth, but I don't feel as though the story suffered for that - I still got a good idea about all of the characters and they were firm in my mind. Personally, I like to learn more about the emotions of characters, but even without this, I did have an idea of what the characters were feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow White for grownups 24 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately saw the film before reading the book, but film true to the book apart from one small piece. Could'nt put it down, read it between reading part two of a certain grey sequel...just what I neded couldn't put this book down adventure with a heroine who's not wimpy and as every one knows the fairy story it was brilliant to have an adult twist loved it !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 23 July 2012
By emkay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. The basic story is a far cry from the "Snow White" I remember as a child this book is well written and was difficult to put down.
Very descriptive writing meant I felt I had seen the movie - saved money!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall it's good, but not great. 1 July 2012
By Lucy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I suppose I should start by saying that no matter how talented an author, no one could get close to describing the gorgeous landscapes seen in the movie. The landscapes and scenes are beautiful and aesthetically pleasing; and something no book could recreate. But this novel makes a fairly good stab at it.

The book is written in a style which I don't quite like. The author has tried to focus too much on cramming every last detail into the book: so much so that each sentence reads as if the author has quickly gone back and added in an extra detail. This means that the book doesn't flow and can sometimes be painful to read.

But, it is an ok read and does manage to tell the story of the movie quite well. It also includes several pages that have nice printed designs on them, so this does reflect the visual element of the film. The book also kindly includes a double- sided poster which features the three main characters (Snow White, the Huntsman and the Queen). My only problem with this poster is that it's attached to the book's spine, so to remove it requires you to rip it out, which may damage the book and/ or the poster.

Overall, I feel that the book does get across the storyline, but does it in a way which is jittery and hard to read. The poster is a nice add- on, and so are the illustrations on the chapter pages, but this hardly makes up for the crude writing style which means this book may never appeal to adult fans of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snow White and the Huntsman 1 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
First things first, this thrilling, spellbinding tale had me hooked from start to finish. A brilliant book for children and adults alike. I already loved the classic Snow White and thought this book might ruin it. I must admit that I was very wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars What I think. 12 Jun 2012
By Izzie
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a lovely read I wish there was another book in the series. What I fault in this book is the use of the same words being repeated if they chose their words more wisely then it would have got a 5 star rating.
