Product description

Beautiful Sophie, with lips as red as blood, skin as pale as snow, and hair as dark as night, is about to come of age and inherit her father’s throne. But Sophie’s stepmother wants rid of her – beautiful she may be, but too weak and foolish to reign. And Sophie believes her, as she believes all the things that have been said about her – all the poisonous words people use to keep girls like her from becoming too powerful, too strong.

When the huntsman carries out his orders of killing Sophie, she finds a fire burning inside her that will not be extinguished, and sets off to reclaim what was taken from her.

Jennifer Donnelly turns her feminist eye to this most delicious of fairy tales and shows Snow White as she’s never been seen before.

    All the stars in the world!!

    If I were to review this gem of a book in just a few words, I would say: It's the definition of feminism and probably the best retelling to ever exist.

    I have only ever read one feminist retelling in the past and although it was beautifully written and the feminism was aptly executed, something was lacking in the story. That book was 'The Surface Breaks' by Louise O'Neill and I found a lack of connection with the characters in the story, which dulled the entire impact of that book on me.

    However, this was not the case with this novel, thankfully. Sophie was a highly understandable character and the fact that she had many flaws made her more realistic and connectable. Her character growth was apparent towards the end of the novel and to be honest, I never thought I would enjoy this book as much as I did.

    I had assignments to do and exams to study for, but I managed to squeeze 5 mins here and 10 mins there just to be reunited with the wonderful characters in the story. I can clearly see myself re-reading this book in the near future!
