Book Review #1020
Princess Ben by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Rating: one star (out of four)
The main character was rather unlikable for a good portion through the book. I wanted her to grow up and learn to deal with things, which she eventually did do, but I was still annoyed with how she handled herself. I wasn't impressed with the plot and didn't see why it had to twist around and involve random scenes that didn't really do anything for the main characters. There wasn't very much character development of the prince either and so I didn't appreciate him at all. The romance wasn't until the very end of the book and then it felt forced, more along the lines of, "Whoops, I forgot to add that part in earlier, I'll just dash everything together at the end." I didn't like how it ended and I felt like it could have been done in a completely different direction and would have had a more salvageable ending.
