I loved this book. It was an easy read and transformed an old tale into a book that any teenage girl or woman would be happy to lose themselves in.
I love the "happily ever after" stories - they are never a disappointment.
The only irritation I felt whilst reading this book was over the repetitive nature the author had towards explaining the characters emotions.

Jenni James' faerie tale collection is a stunning take on the usual tales. However, her stories have a uniqueness in that they are all so beautiful and well written, that you fall in love with them immediately.
Rumplestiltskin is a touching take on the old, and every chapter is a joy to read. This book draws you into its hold and grips tightly, for it had all the elements of a classic; love, hope and magic, are shown to their fullest against a backdrop of pain and suffering. Get this book and you will love it as much as I do.
