My Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
I’m going to keep this review short and sweet: This book sucked major monkey butt.
I was under the impression that this was a more twisted telling of the original Snow White story. If you call mostly the same story with some random sex scenes and profanity thrown into it, then sure, I guess that description applies.
The story was the same as the original Snow White. There was a twist at the end that was a tad unexpected, but by the time I even reached that point I wanted to literally set the book on fire. The wicked stepmother was a evil, as expected. Snow White was a little more interesting, as she was a more rough-and-tumble, outdoorsy type of princess. What drove me nuts though was that Pinborough was telling the story and then randomly felt the need to make a scene lustful or erotic. Most of the time it was oddly placed and just seemed ridiculous.
For example (Don’t read if you don’t want spoilers): After fucking the wicked Queen, whom he had only met 5 mins earlier, the huntsman goes off to search for Snow White in the woods. After he finds her he decides to spare her life. Rather than being grateful for his decision or being outraged that her stepmother tried to have her killed, Snow White decides that she wants the huntsman to fuck her the same way he fucked her stepmother.
Then there was the addition of a few random fairy tale characters who didn’t belong in the story and were glaringly out of place.
Overall, this was a giant NOPE.
