Aus User's review of Robin McKinley, Rose Daughter

Robin McKinley, Rose Daughter - I found, like many...”


written by Aus User on 11/06/2004

Good Points
Far more lyrical and descriptive than "Beauty", in this interpritation McKinley fleshes the story out far more.

Bad Points
In some places the fantasy became overwhleming with the magic and reality becoming very confusing and at times difficult to understand.

General Comments
Robin McKinley, Rose Daughter - I found, like many other reviewers, spending most of my time drawing comparisons between "Beauty", McKinley's ealrier interprtation and Rose Daughter. I realise that this is not fair as they are independent novels.

I really enjoyed Rose Daughter and did find it to be a lyrical and descriptive novel. McKinley spends large passages of the text exploring roses and their scents. Although some might refer to it as tedious, I found it to be very beautiful.

I love the Beauty and the Beast tale and found this to be a wonderful interpretation with McKinley taking it to a different level of exploration and detail.
