A Reading Vocation

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


Book 79/100: Snow White and the 77 Dwarfs by Davide Cali and Raphaelle Barbanegre

Snow White and the 77 Dwarfs - Davide Cali, Raphaelle Barbanegre

I'm going to let this conversation with my husband serve as my review:

Him: This book is stupid!
Me: Why is it stupid?
Him: It has no point! There's no moral.
Me: It does to have a point! The point is that doing housework for a bunch of men really sucks, and it's not a good deal even if it lets you hide from the witch.
Him: Well, yeah, but we don't see what happens to the dwarfs after she leaves. They don't LEARN anything. Like that maybe they should have appreciated her a little more.

It's a valid criticism. This book would've been better if the dwarfs realized how much they made Snow White's life suck.
