Trusty steed here This fairy tale is spun with a thread of dark magic which twists and turns and glints and shines A ueen might just prove herself a hero if a princess needs rescui. Find all of my reviews at “There are always choices” It seems every time I delve into the world of a retelling I begin by pointing out how much I didn’t care for the original I guess it should come as no surprise that Snow White and Sleeping Beauty weren’t my idea of a great time when I was a kid either In fact the entire world of Disney princesses kinda creeps me out – unless it’s these kind of princesses But I digress Due to the above I didn’t have high expectations upon starting The Sleeper and the Spindle and was pleasantly surprised with the end result of this mashup The story is about a young ueen Snow White who is given word by three of her loyal followers dwarfs about a sleeping sickness that fell over a neighboring kingdom decades before but has begun to spread Unlike all the pansy ass Disney broads this ueen decides to take care of the problem herself You know why Because While I generally fall into the “idiot overzealous fangirl” side of the spectrum when it comes to Gaiman this one wasn’t uite as good as Snow Glass Apples so it hovered around the 35 mark I’m rounding up however because there was a little to the story than met the eye that left Mitchell and I looking something like this And also because it was oh so very pretty to look at I mean REALLY pretty My friend Sam disagrees with me about per near errrrrything but somehow I still like him anyway In this case it’s probably because he’s so much smarter than I am and I have to acknowledge he probably read this correctly and I just got mesmerized with the pretty pictures and the fact that the female lead wasn't some douchey damsel in distress If you want to see what the “meh” crowd thought about The Sleeper and the Spindle go check out his review This selection was chosen for my library’s Winter Reading Challenge Many thanks to Tadiana for the recommendation Three books and the limited edition coffee mug will be MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE

The Sleeper and the SpindleIt was the closest kingdom to the ueen’s as the crow flies but not even the crows flew itYou may think you know this story There’s a young ueen about to be married There are so. I've read so many versions of fairy tales that it takes a really interesting spindle ha for me to enjoy Unfortunately this was not the caseThe best part how Gaiman takes the fairy tale characters and weaves them into a new old story “You don’t need princes to save you I don’t have a lot of patience for stories in which women are rescued by men Yes there's a sleeping beauty but she's nothing is like the original story Yes there's a Snow White but gone is the calm Disney gal Learning how to be strong to feel her own emotions and not another's had been hard; but once you learned the trick of it you did not forget However the whole story had a very lackluster feel to it Maybe it's because I've read too many versions of fairytales but I just wasn't wowed It has too many lines like this But the path to her death heartbeat by heartbeat would be inevitable or this It would be the end of her life she decided if life was a time of choices which of course made everything ridiculously and overwhelmingly dramatic which is one sure way to take me out of the story And I didn't feel the romance for some reason I went on thinking that this would be a lesbian retelling of sleeping beauty Boy was I wrong I really wanted to see that buildemotional development and the was absolutely nothing Hugely disappointed Overall this one was alright Annnd that's about as positive as I can get Audiobook Comments Read by Neil Gaiman and as always he provides an excellent audio renditionYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
