    "Ella Enchanted is a great YA novel and is appropriate for any age, even adults. It shows that a woman can overcome anything and fight back! It does feature a princess but she isn't your ordinary princess which I love. It makes young women think and I feel like any woman should read it"

    "Better than the movie! I picked this one up as a beach read having seen the movie a few years ago and needed something light when this familiar title caught my eye. Great for a younger audience, and the young at heart."

    "A spin off of the great story of Cinderella! Every order must be obeyed by the young Cinderella as a consequence of a "gift" she received. More for young girls but people of all ages can enjoy this one!"

    "A wonderful modern take on a very old tale. This book perfectly captured the "girl power' of the 90's and oozes in the charm of that decade. It took me right back to my childhood. The fantasy elements feel right at home in the modern day."

    "Ella Enchanted is itself an excellent book - and my daughters and I loved it so much that they choose it as their listening for our long summer vacation drive. We've now listened to the tapes twice through! The reading is lively and spirited, the young reader's voice could indeed be Ella - which is important as the story is in first person. I'm so glad they had a young performer read this! It was fun to hear her interpretations of the different languages of the various races and countries in the story, also. You can't go wrong with this purchase."

Its great homage to old fairy tales with a good twist of its own, taking inspiration from stories such as Cinderella etc. I personally enjoyed the book so I find this comment very useful and descriptive."

    "One of the best renditions of Cinderella ever, but I wouldn't say it's christian at all. It's got fairys and witches and all that, so might not fit the category there. But it's still great."

It surprised me in different ways and I would love to read it again. I was so happy I found this at the library because I have seen the movie and really enjoyed it and the book was so much better."
