    I really liked this book. I liked that it shows a different side

    I really liked this book. I liked that it shows a different side to Maleficent and explains why she is the way she is. I really felt bad for her through the entire book. Your journey in the book begins when her parents pass away. Then she is cared for by the Faye people then she meets Stefan who ultimately betrays her. This is the reason for her hatred and her curse. She then meets Aurora for the first time and is instantly protective of her. Well I cant really say anymore because it will give away the story. All i can say that is that it is truly worth the read and I can not wait to watch the movie.

    I LOVE IT

    It reminds me of the musical Wicked. Why it does it because the movie (and the book) show that Maleficent wasnt so evil after all and then grew 2 love Aurora, just like Elphaba (aka the Wicked Whitch of the West) wasnt so wicked and was actually Glinda's friend.

    The movie was good.

    But the scenes got confusing here and there and I didn't like at the end how they said Maleficient was both a "hero and a villian"...that kind of made me feel foolish and silly like one of the FPP people...but actually out of all, it was great. Some scenes also didn't make sense like Prince Phillip's kiss not working and Maleficient's;yes, and then KING STEFAN IS THE BAD GUY????
