I realize this book is obviously popular, going by the high star rating that it has received, so my review may not be popular. I found the characters very two dimensional with no real depth. The book is written from three points of view. Delilah's, Oliver's and chapters of the actual fairy tale. I found the fairy tale itself very lame, and feel that no fifteen year old girl would be as captivated by it as Delilah so obviously seems to be. The writing seems very childish to me, and as others have also said, I fail to see what age group would actually wish to read this book. It is far too child like for teenagers/YA. Seven, eight, nine year olds possibly.Read more ›
This is quite a light-hearted read with touches of humour along the way. Fifteen year old Delilah is not a typical teenager and her efforts to fit in with her peers usually end up in disaster. Instead of dating in real life, she spends her time immersed in reading her favourite fairy tale, wishing and hoping that she could meet someone just like the fictional hero, Prince Oliver. Well, in this case, wishes do come true but if only the "happily ever after" was as easily attainable - the barrier between fiction and reality is thicker than paper and Delilah has the difficult task of convincing her mother that she isn't certifiable when she stays cocooned in her room, talking to fictional characters.
Jodi Picoult's trademark style of multiple narration is at play here with three separate narrative strands each in a different font, Delilah's story, Oliver's story and the actual text of the fairytale, Between the Lines. The pencil and silhouette illustrations are exquisite and really complement the whole notion of stories as living, breathing entities with characters climbing up the margins and objects made of actual words.Read more ›
This is imaginative, creative and romantic. I can remember being caught up in my favourite stories as a teen and would have loved my favourite character to reach out to me through the book and sweep me off my feet! I read this while recovering from an operation, and it was a perfect choice when having poor concentration and needing something light and happy. My teenage son also enjoyed this! A delightful fantasy for any age, if you like a bit of fairytale magic or the television series 'Once upon a time'.
Positive: I love the drawings and the idea of the book in the first place. The Kingdom that was created around us. I will keep this for my children to try one day for I believe they should try all kinds of books.
Negatives: Most of the book doesn't make any sense what so ever. An example is below. There is a lot of jumping between the fairytale and Delilah's story. I'm not sure that I like the ending of the book either. There was a lot of moments when I was pulling at my hair wishing that something would happen.
Example of what didn't make sense "one night they ran out the castle together then she is in be in labour? - Some editing mishaps here.
I feel disappointed that I had to give it three stars as I think it could have been an easy 4-5 star book with a little more care.
