    Fairy Tales all in 1

    I didn't pick up this book until my sister told me about it. This book is quite fasinating in relating all of the fairy tales together. From Snow White to Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and even the Frog Prince. If you've seen NBC's The 10th Kingdom then this book is much like it. It's about a girl named Beauty who is connected in some way to all of the fairy tales throughout her life. The book isn't just about links to fairy tales only but it also shows a life of a person wasted and the effects of it deeply. I thought the book was great yet some parts like the dream world was so dragging (good concept but draggy)and the whole thing about the time travelling did explain that Cinderella's glass slippers were actually plastic cuz Beauty watched Disney, but it wasn't logical and didn't make sense. If we allow time travelers to make documentaries wouldn't it be risky like what happen to Beauty and messing up the past? I just didn't by that. Also, I thought that 1 line in the book was corny when Beauty told her time traveling shoes to take her to her mama, mama? The way it was written was just to corny. Other then the stuff I've mention, I enjoyed the book cuz it also talks about how we don't have magic anymore and stories about the fairy tales you would never think it would be cuz it was realitistic.
