My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton is a beautifully written fairytale retold by a great author who knows how to keep her readers on edge.
I liked this book a lot. I felt like I stepped into the time of fairytales, dragons and witches myself. It was so imaginative!
I loved the way the author wrote the main character, Rapunzel over the centuries and you can definitely see a change in her. At the end, she definitely wasn't the girl we met at the beginning of this book. Great character building!
I also liked a lot of the other characters. There were quite a few but I do have to say I loved John and I'm glad in the end he got what he wanted, which was to fly. I was really touched by that turn of events, which brings me to the topic of the ending of this book. A lot was happening and I kept reading page after page to see how it was going to turn out and I must say, one of the best ending I have ever read. I was really glad by the outcome of it all and how everything fit together.
In the first part of this story, though, I had a little difficulty getting into the story because everything seemed to go so very slow. I wanted things to start happening and picking up but that has probably more to do with my personal likings than the author's writing. I did love the second half of the book when things began fitting together more and more and when we came to the year 2013, modern times and all that.
Overall this book was very likable and quite funny, too. And doesn't everyone loves a good fairytale every now and then? Especially when it's retold in the way K.C. Hilton did it. I'm so glad and honored I got the chance to read the arc and hopefully provide good feedback.
I would recommend this book to readers of fairytale retellings no matter what age. And even if you don't usually read those kinds of books I would recommend it anyway because I loved the author's writing so much. It really was something!
