    "I saw Snow White & the Huntsman a while back and stumbled across the book recently. I have to say that I prefer the book much more than the movie. If you haven't seen the movie, or even if you have, I highly recommend the book. You will like the book much more. I guarantee it!"

    "Pretty good read; I was surprised at how close you can get to an original without ripping it off. The author did a nice job of being familiar without being derivative. "

    "I can't actually rate this for myself through my own reading by given that it was demanded that I buy it for my daughter I'm left with nothing other than giving it five stars. I imagine she'd be angry with me if I even thought to give it less."

    "This isn't a well known retelling of Snow White and while it's a great read, I wouldn't call it the best retelling. Certainly the best one would be more widely known."

    "This is an interesting read. It sort of remixes some classic tales into an all-new story as the twin lead characters find themselves coming up against the fairy tale story characters they grew up reading about. A very clever and unique story."

    "Snow White is a pretty popular story to retell, so there's stiff competition in this category. Although Fairest of All is a good young adult fantasy, it doesn't come close to being the best of the best of the Snow White retellings."

    "Mirror Mirror is quite likely the best retelling of Snow White. When reading this book I could really envision myself there, sitting before the Evil Queen as I saw the tale unfold between her and Snow White. This book was captivating to say the least, and I'd highly consider it to be the best retelling of Snow White."
