Overview

In Storybrooke, Maine, Emma Swan and Mary Margaret Blanchard are friends and roommates. They're united in their mission to make life better for Henry, Emma's young son, who has been raised by Storybrooke's vicious mayor, Regina Mills. Henry is convinced that Mary Margaret and Emma are more than just roommates, however. He believes they're family-mother and daughter fairy-tale characters exiled from their enchanted forest by an evil curse. And he's right: Mary Margaret is Snow White, and Emma is her daughter.

In this companion book to the hit ABC television show Once Upon A Time, Emma and Snow tell their own stories, in their own words, for the first time. With Emma relating her time in Storybrooke and Snow narrating the events of fairytale land, present and future fans of the show will get a whole new look at their favorite characters and stories.

Show description from ABC:

"From the inventive minds of Lost executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, the show is a bold new imagining of the world where fairy tales and the modern world collide: 28-year-old Emma Swan is shocked when Henry, the son she gave up, shows up on her doorstep after 10 years in desperate need of her help. He believes she actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent Emma away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse, which trapped the fairy tale world frozen in time and brought them into our modern world. Emma is skeptical, but when she brings Henry back to his hometown of Storybrook, she is drawn to this boy and his strange story, soon suspecting that the town is more than it seems. It's a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close; where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and join the fight."

    First of all, this book is very similar to the movie. A little b

    First of all, this book is very similar to the movie. A little bit too similar. I mainly get this idea because it switches and forth between fairy tale world and Storybrooke in almost exactly the same way as the actual TV show. However, the author does try to add some ‘flair’ by skipping some parts in most of the scenes and instead explained these events as a kind of introduction to the next part of the scene. For example, where the TV show would demonstrate an event from beginning and end, this book starts at the middle, and briefly describes how they even got there (in a sort of flashback form). I really don’t like this since it feels like the story has a huge gap in it because of this. 
    Also, the characters are not developed like I think they should be. For example, Rumplestiltskin comes across in this book as a wise and somewhat kind man, completely different from the quirky, tricky, evil and slightly crazy man that is clearly portrayed in each episode of the TV show. 
    Finally, the writing quality is not the best. It really just sounds like someone watched each episode, wrote it down and then added a few adjectives and short descriptive paragraphs. I would say this book is written in a mid-late elementary age level (seriously). 
    Also, this probably isn’t as important for most of you, but you don't get any kind of cool 'easter eggs' in this book like you do in the movie (which I always love looking for :). 
    However, this book is is very nice if you want a review of each episode as well as a little extra insight into what each character may be thinking during each scene (which is what a Television show lacks). Although this is true, if you want the full story and glory of Once Upon a Time, I would suggest watching it rather than reading it. I would really just limit to this book as being an okay supplement or synopsis of the TV show

    Amazing show, but not a fabulous book

    The tv show is absolutely wonderful. Full of intrigue, plotting, and lots of twists and turns, with romance sprinkled liberally throughout. The book is exactly the same, which is why it isn't as good. The book basically writes each episode down. If you've seen the show, this book is a waste of your time.

    Great book!!!

    If you watch once upon a time it is a great book and if you don't it is a start of a really good series. I would reccomend it to people who like mystery and adventure.

    Read this if you're new to the show

    Basically, this is a rehash of season 1. If you were expecting a brand new adventure, like the Doctor Who or Eureka novels, you're going to be sorely disappointed (like me). Don't waste eleven bucks on this thing if you're a seasoned Once fan- the writing's barely average, not great, and a carbon copy of what you've already seen on tv is hardly satisfying to the little fan heart. To the marketing guys behind this: Nice money-earning SCAM, but a way to make even more money without pissing off core Once viewers is to start a line of freestanding adventures within the show's timeline (as mentioned above). No one who's actually seen season one actually needs to read this book, and that's millions in potential sales lost. Think about it.

    I am a huge fan of the show... like slightly obsessed with it.  

    I am a huge fan of the show... like slightly obsessed with it.  So I was really interested to experience it in a new format.  This book is essentially season 1. Each chapter is a new episode, and it events flips between the Enchanted Forest and Storybrooke. 

    The thing is, after experiencing the show this book was just kind of a letdown.  You really only see the perspectives of Emma and MM (Snow) so you miss a lot of details and background that the show provides.  The show does such a great job of exploring each character's story that this book fell a bit flat.  I'm glad I read it, but I will be sticking to the show in the future.  Adam &amp; Eddie are kings.

    HOWEVER, my cousin picked up this book because she hasn't had a chance to watch the show yet &amp; I keep raving about it.  She really enjoyed the book, and she said that it made her want to watch the show (because trusting my impeccable taste in shows isn't enough for her).  So the book must have been pretty good.
