    1. Weird This book had a fairly promising beginning A few subtle changes but easily recognizable as Snow White Then you reach the part where she encounters the dwarfs, or in this case, the lonely ones, and it gets a little bizarre for my tastes I liked parts of the final half and other parts were just too odd And the conclusion really had me rolling my eyes I m intrigued enough, however, to try at least one of these Once Upon a Time books First half 3 stars, second half 2 stars


    2. This definitely wasn t what I was expecting, but in a good way It has all the elements of the original fairy tale, but with a creepy, steampunk twist Jessica is the only child of a Welsh duke and his first wife, who dies at childbirth, and because of that, he loses all interest in his daughter, letting her run wild on the state, befriending the servants and being practically raised by them Until the day in which, out of the need of a male heir to inherit Kenigh Hall, the duke remarries, this tim [...]


    3. REALLY REALLY REALLY WEIRD Everything about this book was strange From the seven dwarfs which were really five hybrids between animal and human, can you say creepy to the wicked stepmother, who was basically this mental scientist whose purpose I never really understood Even snow Jessica was a weirdo, although that may not be surprising considering her abused childhood Prince Charming was actually this half raven freak, and instead of waking her with a kiss, they shock her on the lips Pleasant Tr [...]


    4. Once upon a time, there was a reviewer who loved fairy tales She discovered a luminous retelling of Snow White complete with a stepmothers jealous vanity, kindly yet isolated miners, and a deathlike sleep, and, after giving the book five stars, lived happily ever after.When a duke s wife dies during the birthing of their long awaited child, the motherless darling grows up in the kitchens until her father remarriage coinciding with her puberty The duke s new wife takes the tomboyish Jessica under [...]


    5. 3.5 stars I loved the setting for this story, and even though I know the tale of Snow White very well, it was uniquely retold enough that I was still anxious to see how things played out.


    6. 2 starsFairy tales rebooted or retold are so much fun to read if the author can write a good tale of a woman filled with feminism Even better like Lisa Kleypas writes in her romances After watching the Disney version of Snow White I ve always wanted to see a realistic version of the tale because I hate the witch stepmother Every time I see her my mind devices plans of how I can kill her with a gun or something and cackle in her face saying You re busted I hate her so much She s so evil and I th [...]


    7. Well, I have to say that this book was a disappointment for me I have enjoyed quite a few of the other books in this series, but I just can t say that for Snow Not that it wasn t interesting, because it was But I feel Tracy Lynn went a little too far with the evil duchess That the duchess made half animal, half people creatures really bothered me All her spells and machines and experiments made me think of witchcraft or something, and kind of just ruined the whole book for me The thing is, only [...]


    8. In Wales during the reign of Queen Victoria, a Duke in a small village loses his wife in childbirth when she gives birth to his daughter, Jessica Broken hearted over the loss of his beloved wife, the Duke let his daughter be raised by the various servants When the Duke remarries the beautiful and intelligent Anne, Jessica finally has a mother As the Duchess teaches her how to be a proper woman, Jessica still finds ways to be with the servants Her best friend Allen, the violin player, spends his [...]


    9. Story 5 5The Duchess Jessica Kenigh of Wales longs to live her life free of obligation and duty Her father, resentful of her existence since her mother died giving birth to her, only keeps her around as an potential heir to his throne Her stepmother, Anne, is jealous of her youth and beauty Jessica prefers the company of the cooks, and the mice who inhabit her home, and dreams of a life of adventure When a series of tragedies strike the hall at Kenigh, Jessica finds herself penniless and homeles [...]


    10. I ve read several of the fairy tale retellings in this series, and most of them suffer from the same problem the story takes forever to get going, but is wrapped up WAY too quickly, leaving the reader very un satisfied and feeling like the time invested wasn t all that worth it.I liked the story, once it got going It was a very interesting twist on Snow White and held my interest throughout which was cool since I ve never been a fan of Snow White I liked the Lonely Ones and the use of science in [...]


    11. This book is like the original Snow white and all so like Snow White and the Huntsman.But it dose not have the seven dwarfs it has these five half human people a raven, a cat, a mouse ,a sparrow, and a rat and they are called the lonely ones and gets like snow white and snow white and the huntsman the stepmother is evil.


    12. I really liked this retelling of Snow White You could see the similarities between this story and the original Snow White, but this one had a lot of originality that it kept me riveted.Snow or rather, Jessica is a child raised by servants Since the servants obviously do not know how a proper duchess is to be raised, Jessica mostly runs wild among the estate That is, until her father remarries Everyone, including Jessica, is fooled by Anne, the new duchess, except for Alan, the fiddler He is Anne [...]


    13. SUMMARY The Duchess Jessica s childhood began with a tragedy her mother s death Her father, heartbroken at the loss of his beloved wife, could not bear to raise the child Largely ignored, Jessica spent the first eleven years of her life running free on the family estate, cared for only by the servants Then her father decides to remarry, bringing an end to Jessica s independence At first her new stepmother just seems overly strict But as Jessica grows into a beautiful young woman, it becomes clea [...]


    14. OK Well, I knew the original tale had its very odd qualities and such, so I was intrigued what direction this retelling of Snow White would be Definitely not what I imagined For one, it was set in Victorian Era Actual Victorian time which puts it too much into real life for me to be happy with a fairy tale world Plus, I think it ended up restricting or complicating the author s attempts at a story The Gemma Doyle trilogy worked the historical fantasy much better than this book I feel the author [...]


    15. A retelling of the Snow white fairy tale Jessica aka Snow is the only child of a duke Her mother died in childbirth and the duke has very little to do with his daughter She is left to the servants to raise One day her father decides to remarry in hopes of having a son Enter the evil step motherStarted a tad slow for me But once it picked up I was able to fly through the story Definitely written for a younger group Teens, I believe Set, I believe, in the Victorian era, with a cast of interesting [...]



    16. This was a cute retelling of Snow White.Jessica is a duchess heir born to a duke and duchess in Wales The Duchess dies after giving birth to Jessica The duke, so saddened by his wife s death gives Jessica to the maids to raise and wants nothing to do with her Of course he marries again to a woman who is very vain and does everything in her power to stay young Events happened and Jessica has to go on the run and escapes to London In London she meets a band of outcasts who take her under their win [...]


    17. Although the story, a retelling of the classic Snow White, takes place in 1920s Great Britain, Jessica and her stepmother, Anne, for that matter is a heroine with modern sensibilities, placing it firmly in the category of steampunk fiction.Jessica is still a young girl when her father, a man from whom she is mostly estranged, remarries a woman from far away She looks forward to the idea of finally having a mother, but is disappointed when the English duchess seems interested in spending time wi [...]


    18. This book needed to go through several drafts to find its feet and work out the rather major kinks First, Tracy Lynn did not do enough research on the Victorian period The dialogue was often gaggingly modern, and the world did not seem fully fleshed out or fully understood by the author She needed to do research on the class system, geography, culture, speech, landscape, and, most of all, names Naming the Victorian character Jessica did not seem to fit at all Two of the characters complain tha [...]


    19. I have a friend and all we do is talk about Disney and fairy tales And yes, to answer your unasked question, we do get strange looks because not many high schoolers argue over which Disney princess is the greatest She read this book, but hasn t told me what she thought of it.Anyway, Snow is a retelling of Snow White in case you missed that in the title It s kind of the same, but different Jessica is a duchess, the daughter of a duke who would have given just about anything for a son and heir Whe [...]


    20. This book by far is the best well written novel in the Once Upon A Time series that I have read so far There were virtually no flaws in terms of story telling and characterization Was it my favorite of the series No, not by any means One way in which this book was different from the others is that it is also historical fiction, set in a real time and place There were also elements of science fiction here, making this book cross genre I personally do not care for science fiction, but that is my p [...]


    21. Snow A Retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is a compelling twist of the well known tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by the infamous Grimm Brothers The story begins with the tragic death of Duchess Jessica s mother, who dies during childbirth The father of the duchess is devastated by his wife s demise and is terrified at the reality of being a widower, who has to raise a baby girl alone So, Duchess Jessica is completely ignored by him during her childhood years, and the responsibi [...]


    22. This is a retelling of Snow White Well another book that ends too quickly and unsatisfactorily No one can effectively end a complex story like this in less than 10 pages And let s talk about the operated on them part What kind of explanation is that Operated how Where did the human DNA come from Did she need male DNA Did the Duchess try to carry them in her womb The lack of these answers makes me queasy with the romance between Snow and the half raven man that could be her half brother And what [...]


    23. This book was just strange, bizarre, and weird It is set in Victorian times in Wales and London Her name is Jessica, but is called Snow as a teenager The Wicked Step Mother is a scientist spiritualist all in one who does a lot of experimenting The dwarves only 5 are creatures that were created by her step mother s experiments and are now outcasts of society The mirror is a boy who is under one of her spells and does her bidding including holding the mirror, of course The ending was totally rando [...]


    24. I was really excited when I picked up this book because I ve always loved the story of Snow White This book clearly was not what I had imagined view spoiler It started off very promising and then she met the weird creatures The stepmother tried to create a type of Frankenstein monster baby Snow wasn t rescued by her prince charming hide spoiler It didn t have a satisfying fairy tale ending.



    25. This was an interesting version of Snow White Warning, SPOILERS I wasn t terribly fond of Snow she was helpful and mostly happy, but she wasn t very smart Why in the world would you touch a golden orb that s hooked up to wires that your evil step mother gave you That just didn t make sense But I really liked the Lonely Ones Even though it didn t quite make sense, I loved the idea of half human, half animal I do want to know why the female is always the cat, though The story starts like any other [...]


    26. I LOVED this book At first I didn t think I would, because it started out kinda dull and boring, but wow that sure changed somewhere around the third chapter This retelling is amazing Very imaginative and yet still retaining that classic fairytale feel to it I also liked the way it seemed like a steampunk world as well, especially when Snow came to London.But I m not making very much sense right now Let me start at the beginning.You all know the story of Snow White, right She s beautiful, her st [...]


    27. Jessica lives as a princess, free to do as she would wish under her widower father, the king When her father remarries in hopes of having a son an heir to his throne Jessica s life changes dramatically She is required to be proper, and her stepmother takes great interest in her at first After a horrible experience with a prince before a party, Jessica s stepmother changes in her attitude Obsessed with having a son, she is determined Jessica s heart will give her what she needs Jessica runs away [...]


    28. Weird This book started out intriguing and much like you d expect, but then it just got weird It felt dark and sinister and confusing The stepmother was just plain crazy and the endingweird I m not sure how else to explain it It was still an interesting read and kept my attention, but I wouldn t read it again.
