I had a feeling that Ms. Cameron grew up reading classical literature and mythology, perhaps due to her father, Richard, being a teacher of Wleep, Creative Writing, and Western Literature. This king is the father of Ironheart and his brother, Valiant.

Royal cousins even siblings used to marry all the time. Jun 18, Daniel Osborn rated it really liked it. So many details left unsaid made me feel lost at the end of the story. You know most of these books are fairly predictable, which I don’t mind, but this one wasn’t. Becau What bothered me most was this one scene where the main character is caught in a hailstorm, where the hail stones are as big as fists.


This has become my favorite book. Vokey I don’t like when the author tries to make a fool of doley.

Goodness, I could write a whole response to literature about this, but I reccomend you read it, it’ll leave you with mountains and loads of brain thinking and questions. But, really, considering what exactly her mother wanted before Aurore was born and how it was rewarded, and by who the curse was laid, you can hardly blame her for being more strict and controlling than she likely would have been otherwise.

Now, there’s this thing authors sometimes do when retelling fairytales that I kind of despise. The first person narration by Princess Aurore is so bland, I quickly lost all interest in her.

Oct 26, Erudessa Aranduriel added it Shelves: Maybe two and a half. I gav It wasn’t the worst story I’ve ever read, and I was enjoying it, but it certainly wasn’t the best.

Ironheart isn’t her true love. Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorite fairy tales, but this one seemed too casual and a little silly. Cameron Dokey is the author of nearly thirty young adult novels. She may not be good at everything but she tries it all.

The King and Queen my parents when we’d already established our narrator is Princess Aurore. She is terrible with the royalty stuff such as dan I was completely at a loss on how I was going to rate this book.


Beauty Sleep Book Summary and Study Guide

There was a problem completing your request. Though her curse at first is a hindrance, in some weird way it turns into an advantage. Told in a first-person voice, the narrative struggles between a chatty, modern tone far too full of parenthetical phrases, and a stronger, more traditional voice that emerges in the dokej half.

And then she left and went into the spooky woods to stop the curse from tearing her kingdom apart. As a whole, all the books have the same overarching problems; the book stays nowhere near true to either the original tale or as I bbeauty the Disney princess films that they market themselves after, and the true love aspect is botched horrifically.
