    "An enjoyable light fantasy novel. The author is Shannon Hale and she is really prestigious by creating great novels! "

    "This story is very heartwarming and inspirational. Based on an old fairy tail, this story is re-imagined to be something on its own and it is well written and keeps you hooked. Dashti's ability to overcome all of the hardship and troubles she goes through is very inspiring and the story of her finding love is great. All this because her Mistress, Lady Saren refuses to marry a man she despises. Dashti never gives up and is determined to keep them alive."

    "I love Shannon Hale's books (AustenLand The Actor and the Housewife...), but I wasn't sure if I would like this one as it seemed more juvenile. I was so into this book I don't think I put it down twice the whole time I was reading it! Thanks to having a kindle I could read while doing almost everything. Very good book. Now I'm onto Goose Girl and those. It is nice to have such good reading"

    "This is a pretty cliche story. How many book or movies have been about this topic and they are always the same. At least if you're going to have a princess in disguise premise you could make it more unique. "

    "Book of a Thousand Days is the best young adult adventure book currently available. The author s Shannon Hale. This story follows Dashti who gets locked in a tower with her mistress and the story develops from that point."

    "I loved this book! It seems to be written for teens but I really enjoyed it even though I'm an adult. Well written and definitely a page turner."
  • Brandon Hill

    "This is largely a love story disguised as a diary... which is a cheater's way of telling a story. The plot reminds me of fairy tales and isn't something I'd be interested in reading as an adult with real responsibilities. If you're looking for a true diary novel, Anne Frank is the standard... this book doesn't even come close."

    "Seems like a great story that I would actually want to read. I think bringing in a foreign book into a clean romance section is a nice touch. "

    "I was not particularly interested in this story. I thought it was kind of boring to be honest. There are much better fantasy books out there. I did not particularly like the characters or the premise either. It can be a serviceable read, but I just did not feel at all engrossed in the story."

    "It is nice to see a Mormon from Utah be recognized for writing such wonderful fiction. Shannon Hale's Book of a Thousand Days was a great story to read with my children. The world and characters created a unique and beautiful backdrop for my kids to fall asleep to at night."

    "This looks like its too fantastical to be reading to oneself. Maybe give it away to charity where they can read it together?"
  • Mark Collins

    "I absolutely love retellings of Fairy Tales and this is exactly what I was looking for. It's appropriately challenging without being either difficult or pandering so it makes for an excellent Young Adult novel. The dialogue is witty and the characters so enchanting that you'll be crying at the end just because you don't have any more book left."
  • Carolyn Jenkins
    Written on April 15, 2018
    "The plot is boring, the characters are one-dimensional and hard to understand, and the prose itself is awkward and doesn't flow well. Not the best reading for a young adult."
  • Crystal Hill

    "I love reading love stories, this story was exactly what I was looking for, it was full of poetry and descriptions of what happens in love stories. The description does a good job telling about the plot."

    "Book of a Thousand Days is a great fairy tale book. The fantasy like atmosphere will make you feel like you are in a magical world. The characters are great as well."
