    Did I inhale this book in one sitting YES.Did I develop a tiny crush on Prince Charming YES What a goober.Did I get teary by the end YES, in such a good way Review This isn t a reboot or retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale instead, it s a brief but engrossing take on what might have happened after the story ended Argyle s writing is simple and straight forward, in the type of style that fairy tales are told in, but the character motivations and plot are far from simplistic I Did I inhale this book in one sitting YES.Did I develop a tiny crush on Prince Charming YES What a goober.Did I get teary by the end YES, in such a good way Review This isn t a reboot or retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale instead, it s a brief but engrossing take on what might have happened after the story ended Argyle s writing is simple and straight forward, in the type of style that fairy tales are told in, but the character motivations and plot are far from simplistic I was reminded of Emma Donoghue and Angela Carter a bit while Argyle doesn t twist the story of Cinderella, she offers us a poignant version of what a life based on enchantment and magic would feel like Cinderella or Princess Christina, as she is called lives in the palace with her lovely husband and amazing household, wondering at the authenticity of her prince s feelings and her own feelings in return The fairy godmother s enchantments, once so welcome, now make everything Cinderella knows suspect and suspicious.I have t...
