    1. I wanted to hug this book literally when I was done.Perfect Exactly what a true fairy tale should be I m seriously thinking about reading ALL Rapunzel retellings to see if there is one out there that can do it better than Dokey Rapunzel is bald What Yeah I didn t think I could get on board with this but it worked The sorceress isn t evil and Rapunzel doesn t end up with a prince per say So some major changes Unlike last time with Sunlight and Shadow the length didn t hurt the book Rapunzel is sp [...]


    2. This is an amazing retelling of the classic fairy tale, Rapunzel For you see, in this story the roles are reversed Rapunzel is bald and lives with her stepmother who is actually a nice person, and her stepmother also has the gift to see into other people s hearts I personally can not call her a witch, because she never seemed to be one to me Anyhow, I do not want to give too many spoilers for this enchanting book You will just have to see how the role of Rapunzel is reversed when you read this w [...]


    3. I have no real complaints about this book It is the most satisfying book I ve read of the series so far I ve read 3 of them just so you know.Rapunzel starts off by telling us that the tale we have grown up with about her is inaccurate and she precedes to tell us the real story The story sure has its differences Rapunzel is bald, the sorceress is good, a prince is involved but isn t the only one to take credit in saving Rapuzel, and Rapunzel doesn t get stuck in a tower until near the last quarte [...]


    4. Rapunzel is my favorite fairy tale, so you can imagine my skepticism learning the Rapunzel in this version has no hair Absolutely none at all But I was charmed by the author s way with words, and by the end, she had me with her version of this story even if I loved it for very different reasons than I love the original tale I read the whole thing in about an hour and a half It s not very long, but it packs a nice little punch Well worth the effort.There are other changes to the tale, both of the [...]


    5. I would really give this 2 1 2 stars if I could I was really enjoying the first half I liked the depth that the Rapunzel story had been given and loved the character of Rapunzel However, once it got the second half with the enchanted tower and the witch s daughter, Rue, it started to fall apart for me SPOILER ALERT Rue was supposedly locked in the tower until someone, besides her mother, came along that truly loved her The witch has always thought Rapunzel would be the one to break the spell and [...]


    6. Rapunzel is, well, perhaps not what you d expect As bald as an egg, raised by a sorceress, and actually not the most polite young lady ever to pull all the carrots out of a garden But she does have the ability to see the truth And into the hearts of almost everyone.Except herself.And maybe that of the tinker s boy who insists upon calling her Parsley.Quite a bit of fun and a surprisingly radical tale for one so often stuck up in a tower.


    7. A perfect retelling of a story I loved the alternate twist and the reason for it Everyone knows the girl in the tower with the long, long golden hair, but no one knows the Rapunzel of this story Why Because there is another girl.


    8. I liked the idea of this book, but I didn t really like the book itself Mostly, my problem came from the writing style which was overly complicated to no end It basically felt to me that the author took a story of no than 50 pages and whipped it up into a longer tale by making the sentences convoluted and long winded than necessary AS for the story itself, I liked the original premise, but I felt it wasn t developed correctlye first half and the second half felt like entirely different stories [...]


    9. 3.5 stars I m giving this an extra 0.5 star on , however, because this novel is quite dear to me I don t know how many times I ve read this ever since I got hold of it way back in 2010 the purchase of it was utterly random, though who would have thought that I would love it this much Have you ever read a book wherein, once you dissect its elements, you realize how, to say the least, awful it is on many levels How it sometimes doesn t seem to make the slightest sense, how the plot sometimes seems [...]


    10. This was my first try at reading a book based on an old fairy tail, in this case, Rapunzel I am most definitely hooked, and it won t be my last I would have read this book in one sitting had life not gotten in the way don t you hate when that happens.Melisande is a very powerful sorceress deep in the forest Before Rapunzel was born, her mother made a pact with Melisande that if she had a baby she just couldn t love, Melisande would raise her When Rapunzel was born, her mother looked down at her [...]


    11. SUMMARY Before Rapunzel s birth, her mother made a dangerous deal with the sorceress Melisande If she could not love newborn Rapunzel just as she appeared, she would surrender the child to Melisande When Rapunzel was born completely bald and without hope of ever growing hair, her horrified mother sent her away with the sorceress to an uncertain future After sixteen years of raising Rapunzel as her own child, Melisande reveals that she has another daughter, Rue, who was cursed by a wizard years a [...]


    12. I can point out a lot of good things about this book For one, it definitely took after the original tale of Rapunzel but giving it a rather surprising twist When we hear Rapunzel we immediately think EXTREMELY LONG BLONDE HAIR But with Dokey s Golden, we find our heroine BALD Yup, you read it right Rapunzel is B A L D I absolutely loved the idea It was so fresh and the story of how she ended up with the sorceress was cunning.Another thing I was fond of was Rapunzel herself She s spunky and charm [...]


    13. This is a very original take on the classic fairy tale of Rapunzel Instead of the sorceress being an evil old women who locks Rapunzel up in a tower until she s saved by the prince, it s COMPLETELY different.Quick Overview Rapunzel is born completely bald, the one stuck in a tower is the sorceress s daughter Rue, who is not put there by the sorceress, and the prince doesn t technically save anyone from a tower The sorceress finds Rapunzal s father stealing rapunzel of course from her garden She [...]


    14. Golden is a retelling of the story of Rapunzel but with a few twists and turns along the way For one thing, Rapunzel is born bald and she is not trapped in a tower but someone else is Rue, the sorceress daughter, is trapped in a tower and she is the owner of long roped locks of golden hair Rue does need Rapunzel s help however to be freed from the tower that imprisons her I feel that this story was well told and is an interesting interpretation Young adult readers will like it because it is a st [...]


    15. Have I ever mentioned how much I love fairy tales Golden is a beautifully done retelling of Rapunzel Melisande the sorceress catches a man stealing an herb, rapunzel parsely , from her garden because his pregnant wife has a craving The mother, although beautiful, is selfish and is unable to love her newborn daughter because the girl was born completely bald Melisande adopts the girl, who remains bald When Rapunzel is 16, she learns that Melisande has a daughter who is trapped in a tower as a res [...]


    16. I picked this up as a quick read at the library thinking that it d be one of those books you read and toss and ended up actually REALLY liking it The plot line moves along at a great steady pace The characters are refreshingly original and I love the twist on the story I almost wish there was a sequel to it so we could see what happens to everyone after the end of the story Unfortunately my library doesn t have any other books by this author or I d have picked up another


    17. Originally posted atRachael Turns Pages I fell in love with the story of Rapunzel from my very first encounter with the story when I saw Barbie as Rapunzel to Disney s Tangled I was excited to read Golden for the specific reason that it was a Rapunzel retelling I fell in love with Cameron s Dokey s changes to the story.As it turns out Rapunzel s mother has a heart made of stone and can make no room in her heart for Rapunzel Her mother has hair that is long and beautiful, but Rapunzel is born com [...]


    18. GoldenBy Cameron DokeyCompleted 12 29 13A retelling of Rapunzel.3.5 starsThe premise of the story is interesting We have a bald Rapunzel being raised like a daughter to a sorceress For a while there is nothing about hair or a tower or a prince And it quickly convinced me that Rapunzel would never grow hair So how is this a retelling of the famous story I also found it very intriguing that the sorceress s gift was to see into the hearts of others, and she could reflect that heart back to them Whi [...]


    19. close In older versions of the classic tale Rapunzel, it always seemed improbable that a grown man could scale a tower using only his beloved s hair Not so in Paul O Zelinsky s Caldecott Medal winning version of Rapunzel Here, Rapunzel s reddish blonde mane is thick with waves and braids, and cascades like a waterfall down the walls of her isolation tower In Zelinsky s able hands it s easy to believe that a prince would harbor no hesitations about scrambling up our fair heroine s hair.Of course, [...]


    20. Well, I would probably rate this two and a half stars I was a little disappointed with the ending, especially since I found the beginning fairly enthralling I was annoyed through out the whole book by the fact that Rapunzel was, get this, completely and totally bald this completely miffed me And it also bothered me how Rapunzel was just a stepping stone for the whole story It s all oh Rapunzel even though your the main character you have a completely pointless part in the whole entire book, and [...]


    21. I found this story to be engaging even though it would not be the type of story i would pick up on my own I liked that Dokey gave a twist to the classic tale of Repunzel I liked the character of the original Repunzel, she was a spunky girl Her relationship with Harry reminds me of my relationship with my husband because we are both very sarcastic and very proud people I liked the interactions between Rue and Repunzel, they bickered as if they were truly sisters However, I did not like the charac [...]


    22. Cameron Dokey did a fantastic job re telling the traditional fairy tale, Rapunzel The main character of the story is Rapunzel, a girl named after a type of parsley The story begins when Rapunzel s father is caught stealing rapunzel parsley from the sorceress garden for his pregnant wife The sorceress, Melisande, tells them that if the mother doesn t have enough room in her heart for her child, that she will take the child Rapunzel s mother is a beautiful and vain woman and when Rapunzel is born, [...]


    23. I really enjoyed this retelling of Rapunzel Last semester I took the course the Art of the Children s Book and wrote a paper comparing three different versions of the classic tale of Rapunzel, therefore, I was very interested in reading this While the three versions stories and illustrations all varied slightly, overall, they were very similar Golden, on the other hand, had a great twist I loved the fact that in this rendering, Rapunzel is completely bald Dokey takes away the most well known fea [...]


    24. The story of Rapunzel has always been MY FAVORITE FAIRY TALEbut this edition is a very strange rendition The idea that the sorceress witch who took in Rapunzel and raised her, had another daughter named Rue, who was the girl who embodied the story of Rapunzel, and the actual girl named Rapunzel from birth due to the herb her birth mother would die without was, get thiswas born bald The author tried to explain her reasonings for making the lead charcter bald, as a tribute to a family member who h [...]


    25. I really wish they had half stars because if they did this book would have a 4 1 2 It s a great story that I very much enjoyed but not quite a 5 star sort of story A great spin on a classic story There isn t much I can critize but the lack of feeling It needed something to be perfect detail feeling and written about when Rue s heart finally opens More needs to be written about Rapunzel Rue and Susan Rapunzel s love I wish Rapunzel wouldn t be such a counter person at times One second she s b [...]


    26. 3.5 4 stars.Det k nns som v ldigt mycket som en saga Det r kanske inte s vanligt att en saga r ber ttad ur f rsta person, men det var n gonting med ber ttandet som k ndes v ldigt mycket som en saga Mysig och jag trodde att den kanske skulle sluta i en annan riktning n den gjorde.F rfattaren avslutar med en litet meddelande om hur det kom sig att hon skrev en retelling av Rapunzel utan h r Det var en fin anledning tyckte jag.


    27. Lots of fairy tale type stories for me lately This one a retelling of Rapunzel and the sweetest one yet Though this is a dark and unforgiving world, it is about love between daughter and parents, between sisters, and between sweethearts Very enjoyable, very sweet and fun and a little different If you like fairy tale retellings, check this one out


    28. A very interesting spin on the story of Rapunzel, this book has two main characters, one of whom cannot grow hair, and the other of whom is the traditional long haired woman The two girls must work together to un do the curse My only complaint is lengthe book was outstanding and it could have been longer.


    29. Solid 3 stars Finally, a good retelling of Rapunzel There simply needs to be of these A short but thoroughly enjoyable read Good characters all around And Mr Jones Sad as it is to say, I didn t see that coming but I liked it a lot And the ending is wonderful Recommended.


    30. A sweet, adorable, utterly lovely re imagining of the Rapunzel story If I have a complaint, it s only that I wish it might have gone a little deeper and been a little longer I wanted Would definitely check out fairy tale retellings by this author.
