This is my first Marissa Meyer read ☺,with the others being on my tbr list, oh well I will read them all.And I can tell you I loved every bit of heartless
Onto the review ,first off I advise you stock your cupboards before reading this book because you will get hungry from all the delectable treats mentioned in the book ,I came this close to eating my phone😪…Oh well the only thing I think Catherine succeeded in doing was awakening my sweet tooth.
Plot: I loved the plot of this book ,so well developed and for the retelling of Alice in wonderland is great ,proving that evil isn’t born but made and everyone be he hero or villian has a story.
Characters: The main characters were also great especially our main character Catherine ( who left me drooling with her treats ,longing to give her a slap sometimes ) but overall she was great ,likewise the other characters who played wonderful roles to this book.
Themes: They were so many lessons to be learnt from Heartless such as :
- The impossible is possible not only for Jest but all of us.
- Listen to your heart ,not your head or people’s opinion,the heart knows what it wants
Thank you once again Marissa for this great book,really look forward to reading more great works from her and I recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for humor and retellings of classics.
