*** I give All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller 3 stars.
I’m really glad I picked this one up from my local library and I’m glad that I finished it. It was definitely worth the read.
What I Liked:
What I Didn’t Like:
Would I Recommend and to Whom:
I think it is less of a “villain origin story” than many of those that have become popular in recent years. So if you’re only wanting to know why Cinderella’s evil stepmother was evil, it may not be for you. If you want a story that’s also a study in the oppression of women and the ways in which good gossip can have power over reality, pick this one up. Agnes is worthy of the 373 pages you’ll spend with her.
