The Goose Girl (book review)




The Goose Girl, by Shannon Hale, is a retelling of the classic Grimms Fairy Tale. Princess Anidori (aka Ani) has a special gift: she can speak with birds. As she is Crown Princess and next in line to the throne, Ani has to learn how to socialize, something she isn't good at.
But then Ani gets a surprise: she isn't going to become queen of her kingdom, Kildenree, after all! She will marry the prince of Bayern and become queen there!

But on the journey, her trusted maid named Selia, along with half of Ani's guard, rebels. Ani manages to escape, but there is danger everywhere now. She ventures into the capital city and finds a job as a goose girl. She also finds a group of true friends. But Ani knows that sooner or later, she will have to face Selia and let everyone know who is the true princess...

I absolutely loved this book and I can't wait to read the sequel, Enna Burning. It was amazing how the author managed to keep every single detail from the fairy tale! My favorite character was Ani. She was strong and believable, and she didn't give up!

I'm glad this was such a good book to read ! I just bought it for myself and now I feel better that I will like it even before I read it~!

I'm glad you enjoyed this one so much, Annie. But then, I'd be very surprised if you hadn't!

I finished Enna Burning today and it's so so good! I'm so glad to have discovered Shannon Hale.

I am so glad you enjoyed it as much as your mom did. This is the only one of hers I have read and I loved it. My wife loves all of her other books and highly recommends them.
