This was such a fun, lighthearted retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales.
Rapunzel was a great main character. She starts of as an incredibly timid, insecure character, but by the end she was strong and independent. One thing I especially liked was that, while she became a stronger character, she never forgot who she was, and kept the same clever, kind personality that defined her as a character.
The romance was sweet and light. What starts out as flirting on Facebook turns into a real relationship. They came to honestly care about each other without being over the top about it. They had chemistry that developed throughout the story.
I didn't like Gothel much at all. She's supposed to be this wickedly clever, cold-hearted woman, but to me she came across as a weak, bumbling fool who could even tell a decent lie to Rapunzel without exposing everything. She never gave a clear answer that sounded the slightest bit convincing. That may have been intentional to show another side of her we don’t see often, but I personally wasn’t a fan of her character.
Rapunzel Untangled was a fast, fun retelling that I definitely recommend to fans of Rapunzel (especially Tangled)!
I’d heard nothing about this book until I saw it on NetGalley. The cover grabbed my attention, and I’d already requested it before I could even read the description. It’s sleek and clean, but still fun. It’s a great reflection of what’s waiting inside.
