    eBook Ú Rose Daughter ç Paperback Download Û citybells Rose DaughterThis is Robin McKinley's second take on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale I'm a lifelong fan of McKinley but this book was my first indication that her writing style might be headed in a direction that is shall we say less accessible to the average reader I've read Rose Daughter twice several years apart but still have extremely mixed emotions about it It's slow paced it introduces interesting ideas and then simply drops them the magical part is and always has been confusing to me for some reason that happens with a fair amount of freuency in Robin McKinley's later books and reading THAT ENDING was seriously one of the most The hell?? moments for me ever view spoiler Beauty decides because of reasons not to

Or in the middle of a story it sloooooows down t

    eBook Ú Rose Daughter ç Paperback Download Û citybells Rose DaughterI read this book as a teenager but retained no memory of it After reading it again I know why McKinley says in the afterward that she chose to revisit the Beauty and Beast story because she had to say especially about roses Well that's about all she has to say in this book Lots about gardening description of stuff and cutesy wootsy little animals Other than that nothing goes on in this book whatsoeverThe problem with this book is there's just no conflict All the possible conflicts are glossed over or resolved before they even have time to get serious The impoverished family has a ridiculously easy time in the most idyllic provincial town in existence The two older sisters are paper thin archetypes of the clever one and the tomboy and they find suitable husbands who have no personality and pretty much never show up There's some kind of a curse on the family But I still have no idea what it is But don't worry It wasn't a curse anyway Duhhh Beauty is never really mad at the Beast

    eBook Ú Rose Daughter ç Paperback Download Û citybells Rose DaughterRobin McKinley's Rose Daughter tells the story of Beauty and the Beast which she has already told before and in my opinion better in BookBeauty She claims she felt she had to retell the story when she learned about roses after cultivating them Never have I read a book before where I felt so much like the author was simply marking time until she got to the bit with the compost Manure provides an important climactic moment She certainly manages to convey what roses mean to her but sadly I'm afraid they don't have uite that importance to meNot to say this is a bad book I'd loan it to a friend without ualms but I wouldn't let anyone buy it new The plot is a bit of a mess; it feels like she wasn't uite sure what was happening herself so she threw in a lot of details in the hope that some of them would fall in a story shape There's no attempt at a real explanation for any of what happens which to me is sort of the point of retelling fairy talesIt is however remarkable for b
