Chris Colfer: The Wishing Spell

Évekkel ezelőtt más szemmel olvastam volna. :) De így is el tudott varázsolni, néha el kell utazni egy mesés helyre. (És angolul habkönnyű olvasmány.)
Mondjuk eleve előnnyel indult nálam ez a könyv, mivel az író az a Chris Colfer, aki a Glee-ben a kedvenc karakterem, és az hogy még mesekönyveket is ír, ráadásul nem is rosszul… ez fantasztikus! :))

Chris Colfer: The Wishing Spell

Ahhoz képest, hogy ez egy mesekönyv, nagyon élveztem 22 éves fejjel is. A tündérmesék valódi tanulságairól szól, és pár mondat tényleg megragadja a lényeget. A karakterek szerethetőek, és felüdülés volt az ismert szereplőket új szerepkörben látni.
Chris Colfer mesélése magával ragadott, és az ikrekhez hasonlóan én sem akartam szabadulni a könyvből. Aki még lélekben egy kicsit gyerek, és szereti a tündérmeséket azok biztos nem fognak csalódni benne.
Kíváncsian várom a második részét!

„If that is what the world has labeled me, then that is the name I shall learn to live with,” the Evil Queen said. „Once the world has made a decision, there is little anyone can do to change its mind.”

(…) if you're going to live in a house made of candy, don't move next door to a couple of obese kids."

“The world will always choose convenience over reality,” the Evil Queen said. “It’s easier to hate, blame, and fear than it is to understand. No one wants the truth; they want entertainment.”


“Fine, I’ll pick ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ ” he decided.

“Interesting selection,” Alex said, intrigued. “What do you suppose the moral of that story is?”

“Don’t piss off your neighbors, I guess,” Conner said.

“I was just thinking,” Conner said. “Alice went to Wonderland after she fell into a rabbit hole. Dorothy’s whole house was scooped up by a tornado that dropped her off in Oz. The Narnia kids traveled through an old wardrobe… and we ended up in the fairy-tale world by falling through a book.”

“Where are you going with this, Conner?” Alex said.

“I’m just saying, it’s kind of lame compared to the others,” Conner said with another sigh.


“Sometimes we forget about our own advantages because we focus on what we don’t have. Just because you have to work a little harder at something that seems easier to others doesn’t mean you’re without your own talents.”


“Although, I’ve always felt sorry for Little Red Riding Hood. It’s obvious her parents didn’t like her very much.”

“Why do you say that?” Alex asked, wondering how he could have possibly construed that from the story.

“Who sends their young daughter into a dark and wolf-occupied forest carrying freshly baked food and wearing a bright jacket?” Conner asked. “They were practically asking for a wolf to eat her! She must have annoyed the heck out of them!”


“I’m a criminal, and you’re a hero,” Goldilocks said with teary eyes. “A flame may love a snowflake, but they can never be together without each harming the other.”

“Then let me melt,” Jack said. He reached through the gate and pulled Goldilocks close to him, and they kissed. It was passionate, pure, and long overdue.
