She is suppose to be a ruffed-up old lady with crazy white hair and basically Ella’s mother. Don’t delve any futher. Ella is definitely not a placid Cinderella and fights back against her tormentors with a stubbornness that almost carso on the heroic. Gail Carson Levine’s examination of traditional female roles in fairy tales takes some satisfying twists and deviations from the original.

My first thoughts were that it was quite different from the movie. This was a new spin on one of the most recycled fairy tales that’s ever been told.

This is a long time favorite of mine. Ella is taken advantage of constantly by cruel people. It was a gift. Is this worth a watch if you’ve grown up on the book? In addition to them, we meet a traditional medieval cast of elves, gnomes, ogres, and giants.

So maybe a little over the age range? Levine has a much lighter hand than your average Disney movie, and there’s not a saccharine moment. You don’t have to be an anarchist to quickly realize that would be a rotten way to live. Until last week, I had never viewed the film with them, being that I hardly fit the definition of girly girl myself, often opting for whatever sporting event is in season.


All she needs to do is find that dang fairy who bestowed it on her. What happens to them?! Charming YA retelling of Cinderella, with some imaginative twists. It’s just a cute little fairy tale for teenage girls about a silly little world.

The relationship between Char and Ella was sweet and well developed and a highlight of the book. She is assertive and is not subservient to her prince as the traditional Disney Cinderella is. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me.

But her intelligence and saucy nature keep her in good stead as she sets out on a quest for freedom and self-discovery as she tries to track down Lucinda to undo the curse, fending off ogres, befriending elves, and falling in love with a prince along the way.

I enjoyed the concept of a medieval Cinderella who is not necessarily forced to do back breaki My daughters have watched ela.gal Disney movie Ella Enchanted many times and loved it immensely.

Obviously, I highly recommend this to a younger audience or for someone like me, who is young at levkne Ella Enchanted is like a koala. Loved all the side characters, even Lucinda was fun to me.

Good or evil, protagonist or minor background character, they have an opinion, they exert at least some control over their own destiny, they are quietly secure in the knowledge of their own power.

Well obviously, Ella has to do everything she is told, no matter what harm may befall her or others. But it double-sucks because Ella is a lil badass and lebine feisty and stubborn and ela.gwil neverrrrr listen to anyone if she could help it. All of the female characters are strong, self-aware women–things seen far too rarely in the fairy tale genre. Ella is the daughter of Lady Eleanor and a somewhat unscrupulous merchant, Sir Peter, whom she rarely sees.


The first being the Ella has the curse to obey every command ever pointed at her. Apr 12, Allison Tebo rated it liked it Shelves: A joy to read, and very well written, Ella Enchanted took ebcantado a few hours of my time but will take up a much larger slice of my memory: Hold your breath, Ella. But she never took an order placidly.

El Mundo Encantado de Ela : Gail Carson Levine :

I say for the second time. But what else do you need to know besides it is a retelling of Cinderella and the “Cinderella” of the book has a curse to obey all commands ever?

That totally means “I didn’t understand the freaking ogres, but I appreciate their contribution to the story as ugly large man-eating villains”. It has a reputation for being among the worst book-to-film adaptations, and that is, guess what, totally warranted. This book is so hard for me to review because I love every single thing ela.gai, it, but hate every single thing about that bloody movie.

For varying reasons, depending on the version, Lucinda refuses to lift the curse.
