    Description

    The year is 1502, and seven-year-old Bianca de Nevada lives perched high above the rolling hills and valleys of Tuscany and Umbria at Montefiore, the farm of her beloved father, Don Vicente. But one day a noble entourage makes its way up the winding slopes to the farm - and the world comes to Montefiore.

    In the presence of Cesare Borgia and his sister, the lovely and vain Lucrezia - decadent children of a wicked pope -- no one can claim innocence for very long. When Borgia sends Don Vicente on a years-long quest, he leaves Bianca under the care -- so to speak - of Lucrezia.

    She plots a dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but salvation can be found in the dark forest as well.

    A lyrical work of stunning creative vision, Mirror Mirror gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White - and has a truth and beauty all its own.

    ©2003 Gregory Maguire (P)2008 HarperCollins Publishers

    Interesting re-telling of the fairy tale.

    I've read several of Gregory Maguire's books - Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Wicked, Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men. I enjoy his modern twists on well-known fairy tales and his overall writing styles. He always incorporates elements of the fairy tales and weaves them into a believable and thought-provoking plot.

    This book has a nice flow, and I enjoyed it. I would have rated it 4 stars but John McDonough constantly mispronounces "Lucrezia" and "Cesare" and it drove me nuts.

    nice

    It was ok, hard to follow at times. But, over all good. I might read it again to see if i can get more out of the story.

    Genius combination of history and fairytale

    Maguire is the master of reinterpretation. He combines a familiar narrative with two infamous characters. The result is delightful. I can't wait to listen again, I'm sure there's more pleasure to be wrung from this narrative.
    John McDonough leads a talented cast of narrators who link and enliven the various elements of the story.

    How can one mess up a fairytale...read Mirror Mirror

    I love fairytales. I love fantasy and new and different telling of old stories. Mirror Mirror did not cut it for me. I could barely finish it. The only reason I did was because I was on a road trip and had nothing else to listen to.

    Awful.

    I have read so many of his books and love them dearly. But this book straight up sucks.

    Long introduction to characters

    There was a lot of back story. I found it hard to get in to. But I did enjoy the 2nd half of the book much more than the 1st

    Not my favorite

    I'm a big Gregory Maguire fan, but for some reason this book didn't quite do it for me. I found it difficult to understand at points and the storyline seemed to drag on in areas.

    terribly boring

    This was by far the most boring book I've ever read. I had to finish it, but I'm not sure why.
