    I love the part where she is about to lunge in the dragon cave and something holds her down and she struggles then when she stops hse realises that if she had lunged the 7 leage boots would have smashed her into the cave wall I applied this to Heavenly Father trying to tell us what to do and we stuggle and don't do it Then when it's through we realise what would have happened if we had done that thing or we do it and we feel foolish afterwords I love the tensity Addie's courage campared to Meryl's

    I love this book Even though Ella Enchanted is Gail Carson Levine's most well known book I think that The Two Princesses of Bamarre is her best book It's really exciting but also well written If you love Ella Enchanted this is the book for you

    I've grown up with this story To say that it has had an impact on my life is an incredible and unforgivable understatement Everyone knows this author because of Ella Enchanted but I believe that this book is much much greater It has romance monsters action magic and adventure; all things that people look for and enjoy in a good book But what really makes this story great is not any of those things What makes it great is how a young woman who is afraid of everything ventures out into a dangerous and terrifying world that would scare even the brave in order to save her sister even though there is a very high chance she might die in the attempt Speaking as someone who has a lot of experience being afraid this story is inspiring and very relatable in so many important areas Because even those of us who are afraid of a great many things would go to frightening lengths and do the impossible to save someone we love Two Princesses of Bamarre is a fantastic fairy tale that contains all the best elements of such stories and has heart than stories written by authors that are supposed to be 'good' If the apocalypse came tomorrow and there was only one book that I could keep with me and read again it would be this one I love many books but this is a part of my soul and is beyond beautiful If you like fantasy and are not opposed to actual emotion if you are then you are next on my hit list then you should read this book It is the fairy tale that surpasses all fairy tales and puts the Grimm brothers to shame Thank you Gail Carson Levine for writing such an amazing story You're one of the greatest reasons I myself plan on becoming a writer

    This book is so goodIt did take me a while to get into it The first half or so of the book is kind of slow going Two sisters One is bold One is shy YawnBut then in the middle when the shy sister has to leave the castle to save her beloved sister's life it gets REALLY exciting Specters Gryphons Dragons Battles WOW I could hardly put it down at that pointThere's also a story within a story a legend of the kingdom and it is as well done as the main storyThe almost end had me bawling thinking about my own sister and how terrible it would be to lose herI don't typically get into stories about princesses As Boots of the Coup says Tell your teacher I said princess are evilHow they got all their money was to kill people But I can stomach the feisty smart brave princesses in the books of Gail Carson Levine She spins the whole traditional princess genre and makes these gals rockUnlike other books by Gail Carson Levine this one is not based on a traditional fairy tale or at least not one that I know but it's better than any of those someday my prince will come bullshit stories that I grew up withGive this one to the girl in your life who's all into those wimpy Disney princesses
