What the community says about Rose Daughter
- "If you loved Beauty and the Beast, this book is definitely for you! Rose Daughter is a beautiful retelling of the fairy tale we all have grown up with. The author has made it so easy to connect with the characters in the book and while it differs from the Disney tale in certain ways, you can still feel the connection. This is a must read!""I wouldn't call this even a mediocre fantasy novel from the 90s. It's pretty blatant to rip off a classic fairy tale, but to retell it worse than the original instead of branching out from it, it's a shame. The original is much better."
- "It's supposed to be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. And it has a number of elements from the original, but it gets caught up in its own ambitions and nearly drowns itself under the weight of this. Not bad, but way less than it could have been."
- "I have to say I wasn't thrilled with this story because it was just a rehash of Beauty and the Beast, which I love. I was looking for something completely new and refreshing, but this book didn't offer that. It was too much like a copy cat book of something already done. "
- "Robin McKinley writes a beautiful retelling of Beauty and the Beast in her book, Rose Daughter. It does not follow the story exactly however, It is very descriptive and vivid, which I found enchanting. I found it to be an enjoyable read as some parts were simply magical."
