Book Review: The Princess and the Captain

The Princess and the CaptainThe Princess and the Captain by Anne-Laure Bondoux

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is one of those books that I know I would have loved if I had read it when I was about seven.

The story is imaginative. However, I don't feel that its full potential had been reached.

I had great difficulty sympathising/empathising with the characters. They were much more characters than they were people. Events that should have made me cry had absolutely no effect on me - which is unusual, as I tend to cry a lot when reading sad things.

A great read for the very young, but not something I would recommend to adult readers as I would, say, 'Over Sea Under Stone.'

That's good! My flatmate adores the book and she's in her 20s. For me, however, I didn't enjoy it all that much.
