Let's be honest, this book wasn't very good. I pre-ordered this book months ago and was super excited for it. I wound up seeing the movie before the book was released. Let me just say if you've seen the movie don't buy this book. You will be SEVERELY disappointed. Basically, you will be reading exactly what you watched...just more dull and boring. There is no character development, it was bland. and just plain bad. If you want a quick easy read that you'll forget about then go for this book. But if you want something worthwhile, meaningful, and captures your attention spend your money elsewhere. This is one circumstance where the book is not as good as the movie. I really cannot stress how dull this book was. Huge disappointment.

Snow White and the Hunstman did not meet expectations. I only got the book very recently, and I have not seen the movie. I knew there was a movie, but I just didn't see it. I am a teenager, and this was not a good book. The review: The book itself. It was worth 8 dollars and 99 cents when I bought it, so I was expecting a long book. It was only 151 pages long, and there were 23 chapters, which, thanks to the short length were only about 6 pages long. The book was not worth the 9 dollars. More like 6 dollars. The main characters were Snow White, Eric, and Ravenna, the queen. Ravenna was probably the worst character in the book. She did not improve at all. She started the book off by killing the king, and saving Snow's life. Confused much? Then, we learn about her magic. There is a grim demonstration. Ravenna sucks the youth out of a girl she can stay young. Then, she decides she wants to kill Snow White too, so she can be immortal. Ravenna has one last chance to improve herself: by actually killing Snow White. Poison: the only way to have a major plot twist and "kill" someone. Earlier in the book, it was revealed that if Ravenna drained Snow White of her youth, the she would be, essentially, immortal. But she tries to kill her. What happened? I don't know. Ravenna could have drained Snow White, and then killed her. Ravenna was a weak character. On to Snow White. She was okay. She started out as a young woman in a cell, but she ended as a woman who could lead an army. That was really great, except there was no explanation as to how it really happened. However, Snow White is a really strong female character. She led an army at the end, for God's sake! She wasn't the best character, but she was a strong person. Lastly, Eric, a.k.a. the Huntsman. When he is first introduced, he is a drunkard, trying to forget his murdered wife in a flagon of grog (alcohol). Snow Whit escaped from the guards trying to bring her to Ravenna to be killed, and she ended up hiding in the Dark Forest, a forest which only a very few have came out of. Eric is one of those few people. He is brought to the castle, and told by Ravenna to go into the Dark Forest and kill Snow White. In return, Ravenna will bring back his dead wife. In the Forest, Eric decides not to kill Snow White, but bring her to a village instead. While in the forest, he teaches her some defense with his dagger. In the description, it says he trains her in the art of war, but all he does is teach her how to block and stab. Eric is an okay character too. At the end, he is about to leave the palace because he doesn't want to be around royalty. The book: There isn't much violence. There are two battles, occasional fights, and four death scenes. That seems like a lot, but there are little graphic/gory decriptions, so it is all right. It is less bloody than the Hunger Games, but more bloody than Harry Potter. As for sexual content, there is very little. There is one innuendo about the king and Ravenna's wedding night, but it is when Ravenna is talking about killing the king so it balances out. There is one kiss between Snow White and Eric. She is poisoned by the apple, so she is unconsious, and he just thinks she is pretty. There is no detail, so nothing is innapropriate. I do not think that this book was very good. It was too short, too expensive, the description was bad, and so was the plot. It was a short read, though. So that is good. It only took me an hour and a half to read, though. Ages 11 and up.
