Description

Our customer reviews

Also published in <a href="http://cupofcoffeeandabook.blogspot.pt/2012/07/review-red-riding-hood.html">"A Cup of Coffee and a Book"</a> <b>*This review might contain spoilers!*</b> This book surprised me... how?! Despite the fact that I was already excepting to really like it, it gave a completely new dimension to the tale of Red Riding Hood. It was entertaining without giving away too many details and it managed to be way better than the movie itself. In the book you get to know the characters in a more deep way; you know their thoughts, their feelings, their impression towards other people and situation and that is lacking in the film. Despite the amazing cast the movie had (Gary Oldman for instance), it missed something and it was only after I've read the book did I've realised what it was: character development and depth. The beginning of the book is different from the movie one, showing us a little bit more of how life in Daggorhorn is like and how its people connect. You get some hints of Peter's background story and what happened to Henry's mother and how it's all linked. There isn't an actual love triangle since Valerie's one love is Peter and vice-versa, but I felt sad for Henry whose bravery came out for his love for Valerie. Valerie is a hard character to analyse. You whether like her or hate her or get in the middle without knowing what to think of her. I'm in the latter situation. There were moments where I appreciated her outside manner of living - despite trying, she didn't actually fit with her friends - but her relationship with her sister could be more developed. You understand her love for Lucie but after Lucie's death, there were just small fragments of her thinking about her sister, of missing her, of wishing her to be there. The plot felt sometimes loose... it felt as if the writer added a couple of scenes after finishing the book. But what annoyed me the most was the missing chapter! The last chapter is available online but if you buy this book, you buy an incomplete book. And I had trouble in downloading the last chapter from the official site - I downloaded it from another site. On the whole, I liked the book better than the movie apart from the missing chapter. It's a truly entertaining read for those who have or haven't seen the movie.show more
