    One thought on “Rapunzel Untangled”

    1. *heartfelt-sigh*I love RAPUNZEL to the moon and back so you would understand how terrified I was about this book. I was afraid that it wouldn't live up to my expectations or that I wouldn't like her character here. As it turns out, all of my fears were all totally useless. I LOVE THIS STORY. The plot is quite good. I love how this story melded the modern world with the fairy tale. Rapunzel was a clueless girl at first, but I was so proud of her when she added Fane in facebook! that was epic! GIR [...]

    2. ***Warning, will be filled with spoilers because I don't think there's anything that you won't already know****Okay, so let's just say it. This story was completely predictable and trite and cliche, especially since you can totally tell where the author draws elements of the story from. The title says it all - Rapunzel, and Untangled (yes, the movie). I love the fairy tale, and I love the movie, and this book just makes it so underrated. So bland. Why is it bland? Let's see:1) The main love inte [...]

    3. This is my first experience with a modern day fairy tale retelling, and I have to say, if the others are even half as good as Rapunzel Untangled was I need to start reading them all up. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I loved it! I thought it was cute, clever, romantic, and so interesting, and Cindy Bennett even had a few twists up her sleeve. Rapunzel Untangled is a great book!Rapunzel lives in a tower completely isolated and she has long flowing blonde hair. But you knew all that, rig [...]

    4. *Claps Hands* That has to be my very favorite retailing. Loved ever minute of it, loved the way Mrs. Bennett works in the old fairy tale with a contemporary flare. I wasn't quite sure it would work or could be done with the Rapunzel story, but wow kudos to her for doing such a wonderful job. I didn't want to put this one down, kept wondering what was going to happen and how. I loved the characters too especially Fab or I should say Fane. He was so sweet, curious, caring, chivalrous, just an all [...]

    5. ****FINAL RATING: 4.30 STARS****CATCHALLI had absolutely no expectations going into this book. I hadn't really heard anything about it, and just decided to take a random chance on it because I wanted a light, fun read after some of the heavier stuff I'd been shouldering. I never, never expected to love it so much. Rapunzel is one of my favorite, if not my actual favorite, fairytale, so of course I was interested to see how it was retold in this book. The result was something I haven't seen befor [...]

    6. Me divirtió mucho la forma en que la autora adapto este cuento a la actualidad (las menciones a Facebook, Skype y otras cosas fueron super divertidas).Sin duda alguna Fane es super lindo, comprensivo y perfecto, pero siento que el final quedo muy abierto no se terminaron de solucionar todos los problemas de la pobre Rapunzel (¿qué va a ser de ella ahora?) me abría gustado un epilogo, fuera de eso me encanto.

    7. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm/Thanks to Netgalley and Cedar Fort Inc. for giving me this book to review.Rapunzel is locked in a tower by her mother, as she has an illness which could kill her if she goes outside. After she gets a computer and goes online to do school work, she joins Facebook, to find out what the world outside her tower is like, against her mother’s permission, and friends Fane. As her friendship with Fane develops, and she starts to explore the wo [...]

    8. Really 1.5 stars, but I'm giving it a boost because it's a Rapunzel retelling. To see full review click here.Oh boy.I have mixed feelings about this one. I like the fact that it's good clean fun and that it's a Rapunzel retelling (who doesn't love a Rapunzel retelling) and that's about itWhich is sort of sad.It was my first Kindle purchase after all. And I wanted that purchase to be kick ass. But this wasn't.Yet, I don't feel like ripping this one into little bitty shreds because while it had se [...]

    9. I'm fairly torn about this review because I really, really liked 85% of this book. That gets 4 stars. The last 15%, however, gets 2. This modern-day retelling of the Rapunzel fairy tale is mostly delightful. We meet the 17-year-old who has lived a life stuck in her rooms in a mansion, unable to go outside or interact with anyone but her mother because of an immune deficiency disorder. She goes to school online and is prohibited from using her computer for anything non-education related, but disc [...]

    10. With such a promising premise - a fairytale retelling where the hero and heroine meet via social media - I couldn't resist giving Rapunzel Untangled a try. And I found it be quite an enjoyable read, one that trapped me in Rapunzel's world through the majority of the early morning hours!I love that Rapunzel and Fane meet early on in the story, and most of the plot centers around their interactions. Yup, I love a good romance! Fane is a great hero - thoughtful, funny, protective, generous, and alw [...]

    11. A modern re-telling of Rapunzel?come on I was stoked. Who doesn’t love a good up to date twist on fairy tales? Especially Rapunzel of all fairy tales out there? Chick with infinite golden hair, trapped in a tower, with her crazy, witch of a mother…So awesome. There was no way to keep me away from this.Sorry to break it to you guys but my experience with this book was not that awesome. It was interesting at best. Yea…I was a bit disappointed with this book. Are you ready for the rundown? We [...]

    12. Nunca pensé que llegaría este día, pero Rapunzel Untangled no me ha gustado nada. Tenía muchas expectativas porque me encanta cómo escribe Cindy C. Bennett. Pero este libro tiene algo que no. Lo leí ayer, porque me sentía realmente mal, sin poder mirar hacia abajo y ya te digo, mucho menos estudiar. Así que me tendí en la cama con mi Ebook y comencé a leer Rapunzel. Sin embargo, me tuve que obligar a seguir leyendo, porque aunque fuese corto no me apetecía tener que terminarlo hoy. El [...]

    13. This book made me smile from the very beginning. We all know the story of Rapunzel and her golden hair, but this modern day version has characters that are vivid and likeable and twists that bring the story into this century. But, just because the story takes place in modern day, doesn’t mean it has to lack the fairy tale magic that we all love. This story has both.Rapunzel is lonely. Living in a tower because of her immune disease, she lives a life of monotony and isolation. Her only human co [...]

    14. Earlier I wasn’t really a big fan of ‘Retellings’. Then I read Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine and Jane by April Lindner and I changed my mind. When I came across this book on NetGalley I just had to request it. I mean who doesn’t like Rapunzel and who hasn’t seen Tangled? To my surprise, my request was granted and I quickly delved into the book.Right from the foreword by the author and the prologue you know that this is going to be a darker version of the fairy tale. A seventeen [...]

    15. A modern day retelling of Rapunzel, the author did a fantastic job of putting a twenty-first century spin onto this classic tale, all while keeping true to the fairytale magic that remains at the heart of the story. The story begins with Rapunzel. A lonely girl who, due to a disease that affects her immune system, has spent her entire life locked away in her rooms. With only her distant, unloving mother for company, Rapunzel decides to be rebellious and find herself a friend in the ‘outside’ [...]

    16. Rapunzel Unraveled is a contemporary retelling of the old fairy tale story about Rapunzel. Very cleverly done, this is a wonderful and entertaining story for YA readers. Rapunzel has been told all her life that she has SCIDs, an immune deficiency problem which prevents her from leaving her suite of room. She eats, studies and sleeps in a tower far away from the world. The only person she sees is her mother Gothel. Rapunzel is curious about what goes on outside of her room so without telling her [...]

    17. Read this and my other reviews at The Social Potato.An arc was provided to me via Netgalley. This did not influence my review in any way. Thanks, NG!Actual rating: 3.5 / 5First of all, I'd like to say (even though it's highly unnecessary haha) that Rapunzel is one of my favorite fairy tales, ever. That's why Disney's adaptation of it entitled "Tangled" is very precious to me. So when I chanced upon this book on NG, I immediately grabbed the opportunity to read and review it. I read that it was a [...]

    18. From: Bookz and BitzBooks have fads, just look at the explosion of Fifty-shades-type-trash that have appeared on the shelves this christmas. In YA there was vampires, then werewolves and now fairytale retelling. Jackson Pearce did a fantastic job for older readers on Sisters Red and Sweetly, in a similar style we have Cinder, Ash and Beastly and for younger readers Just Ella and Palace of Mirrors steal the show. Its not just in the written world that Fairytales are taking charge - TV is filled w [...]

    19. Have you ever read a book, been completely fascinated by it, but have absolutely no idea why? No? Well…phooey on you then. (Just kidding. Maybe.) That was exactly the case for me when I finally sat my stubborn booty down and read “Rapunzel Untangled.”See…Rapunzel is a pretty big deal in my house (and by big I mean I hear “LET DOWN YOUR HAAAIIIRRRR” at least five time a day coming from my 4-year-old daughters room) So when I saw that Ms. Bennett was looking for reviewers for her Rapun [...]

    20. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Cedar Fort, Inc and Netgalley.)17-year-old Rapunzel lives alone in a tower. Her mother lives in the house attached to the tower, and visits her every day. Rapuzel has an immune deficiency problem called SCIDs, which means that she is unable to leave her tower. But one day, Rapunzel sends a friend request to a boy (Fane) on facebook, which he accepts. The pair start talking, and when Rapunzel’s mother [...]

    21. "¡Rapunzel, deja caer tu cabello!"#2015ReadingChallenge: #9. A book by a female author.Estaba usando la netbook de mi hermano y, como no tenía ningún libro allí, entré a un blog al azar y descargué el primer libro que me llamara la atención, y resultó ser éste. Es ligero, fácil de leer. A veces me aburría porque hay bastaante relleno y páginas sobrantes, y a veces me interesaba mucho por lo que le pasaba a los personajes. Todo el asunto del seis fue muy dinámico y divertido.Con resp [...]

    22. I loved this modern version!! Rapunzel is a girl who believes that if she comes in contact with anyone--or leaves her tower rooms, for that matter--she will die from her disease. Her mother, Gothel, believes that Rapunzel should be educated, but doesn't want to take the time to figure out technology, sowhile doing an Internet search for a Biology assignment, she stumbles onto Facebook and a whole new world opens us to her--one that includes friends. Fane is just great!! I love how brave and funn [...]

    23. This book was one of the best Rapunzel Story I have ever read. First of all Fane is adorable *sighs* and Rapunzel is so goodhearted, they are perfect for each other. I loved this story so much and it was so good! I loved how Fane and Rapunzel both came out stronger people in the end.

    24. Slight spoilers included in my review.I would like to start this review with a caveat: I didn’t hate Rapunzel Untangled. I didn’t throw my Kindle across the room in a violent rage, fan the flames of my righteous anger or anything like that. By the end, I was mostly just glad to be free of this book. I have no extreme feelings for this book one way or another. Even now, it’s really just the book I read that one time about how Rapunzel used Facebook.And that's what Rapunzel Untangled is; Rap [...]

    25. I was never here nor there with the Rapunzel story. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always liked it, but it’s never been on the “love it and must read and watch as many versions as possible” level of Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and The Little Mermaid for me. But there’s something about this story that causes it to be fumbled much more than other fairytales.Cress is the only book that pulls it off with any degree of success, and Tangled is the only version of the story that I whol [...]

    26. The set upRapunzel has lived all her life inside her rooms, because of a rare illness that could kill her if she went outside. Her only human contact is with her mother who is fanatical about keeping her safe. But Rapunzel longs to see the outside world. When Rapunzel secretly "meets" a local boy named Fane on Facebook, she begins to question her mother's motives, and realizes that her sheltered life may not be as safe as she thought it was. My thoughtsI really like the idea of a modern day rete [...]

    27. No, this was not terrible.No, this was not ^the best^.But. [image error]It kept me on my toes, and the six part was very creepy. All in all, I do love Rapunzel retelling. But the part about Fane visiting a girl at Gothel manor, who he JUST MET ON FACEBOOK felt a little off, if you know what I mean. Haven't you ever heard of "Don't talk to strangers" ?So it was good. I did like it, hence the four star.

    28. Rapunzel Untangled was a book I picked up, largely due to my love for fairytales and retellings of them. A particular book, Bewitching, by Alex Flinn started this love. However, Rapunzel Untangled, by Cindy C. Bennett, did not enchant me like the previous book did. Reading this introduction, you can understand why I was so interested in this Rapunzel retelling:'Told that she must be indoors at all times, Rapunzel feels trapped in the huge mansion where she lives. But when school demands allow he [...]
