Book: Cinderella is Evil by Jamie Campbell

I'll be honest, I expected Cinderella to be far more evil than she was in Cinderella is Evil, instead she acted like a bit of a spoilt brat at times, but I wouldn't really call that being evil. Though I didn't think that that made the story bad. I actually really enjoyed this re telling. Of all of the fairy tales it is Cinderella which is the most subject to view point, after all Cinderella may not have been forced, as she wasn't in this retelling.
I like the way that in these retellings by Jamie Campbell, the bad guys have the view point. It was always possible to feel a bit sorry for the ugly step sisters, but this re telling had me really wanting a happy ending for Anna, and not just for Cinderella.
Actually saying that, I was a bit indifferent about the happy ending for Cinderella, she didn't seem like too nice a person really.
