Review: My Name Is Rapunzel

My Name is Rapunzel - K.C. Hilton

If you follow me , then you know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tales. When I was little, I had tons of books where princess were rescued by their prince charming. And of course, I daydreamed a lot of having my own prince charming one day. So when I heard about this book, you know I was on it like white on rice!


Plot: This plot is pretty standard following the lines of the original tale with a few twists here and there.  I can tell you that right from the start the plot is intriguing. Rapunzel is tricked and lured into many false words. She is naive and young, only wanting what every young maiden wants. A long, lasting romance. I particular enjoyed the fact that this tale goes back and forth from past to present. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like it told this way, but it did flow well so I went on reading. Every jump into the past leads to important twists in the future


Love/Friendship: Through out Rapunzel life she has befriend  many friends and has come to like guys. Though her relationships never last long, I adore how strong she is. Her love for her first love is never wavering, giving her strength to move on. She holds on to what she knows, her family and true friends and that gives Rapunzel amazing strength to fight back. She does make a few friends who in  turn help her along the way. They all want to make sure she gets her fairy-tale ending.


Ending: After so many years, things finally came to an end. The ending has a great rectification for Rapunzel. Things are finally set in place for her. Even if it does come at a price, I think over all Rapunzel  deserves it.


If you ask me, this is a great re-tale of the classic. It doesn’t loose the classical feel but it gives the story much more depth that any reader can enjoy. A thrilling adventure with rich characters and a exiting plot line, My Name Is Rapunzel is wonderful.
