I loved this book. It's about a girl who cant get rid of her terrible gift of obedience. You should read it if you havn't!

Wow it was great! Except I think that the author should've described Char better. I had a hard time picturing him in my head.

I was totally 'Enchanted' by this book and hope that Levine will write more about Ella and her new life as Queen of Kyrria and bride of Prince Charamont.
I was very satisfied at the ending however wished that the book extended till there were no more trees to supple paper or till I died because even though it was satisfying and I will read the book over and over again, it shall never seem the same because now I know the ending.

Although I am growing a *little* old for this book, I loved it to death when it first came out; and now it is a charming read. The only thing is--I am not looking forward to the movie one bit. You know they can't possibly make it like the book. I don't think I am even going to rent it.

Yeah it was pretty good i guess. But not so great like all you people say. im just no into these kind of books. But i know you all like it so i had to give it a 5 because it just wouldnt be fair to everyone.

This was such a great book! There is a movie coming out soon. I just hate how The girl from princess diaries is playing the role. She is just too old![

I LOVE Ella Enchanted! It is the best book ever! You really do feel you are right there with her. Heck! I feel like I am her! It is just one of those stories that you can read a thousand times and never get sick of it. The characture just come alive. And Ella isn't a dissy little girl trying to impress everybody, she is frisky, witty, and a whole lot of fun! I can't wait till the movie comes out!

Ella Fans, DO I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU! Ella Enchanted is becoming a movie! I was personally crushed discovering this, probally cause I wanted to be Ella, but hey, thats life. Ella Enchanted stars Anne Hathaway The Princess Diarys and Hugh Dancy Black Hawk Down, and directed by Tommy O'Haver. [br][br]Am I ever pumped![br][br]I read Ella Enchanted in third grade and I am still in love with it, and I'm in grade eight now. Gail has also written another book, but the name escapes me. Another good author is Meg Cabot, CHECK OUT ALL AMERICAN GIRL it rocks![br][br][br]Toodles, Danielle
