I first received Ella Enchanted in the third grade. It was my favorite book then and even now,five years later, I still can't put it down!

It's the best book I've ever read! I just love how it was written! Ella is not a dull character and she actually gets to know the prince instead of just riding off with him like in all those other fairy tales. You actually feel that you're right next to her. It is beautifully and comically written and I wish I could write like that. I wish I could write period haha.

This was the best book I ever read, but I was so disapointed when it ended I didnt want it to be over. I have read it l probably 5 times now its one of my favorites. I hope the movie is at least half as good. My favorite part in the book is the sliding down stair rails. I really got into the book and could imagine everything.
fan of ella

I loved the book ella enchanted. It touched every emocion. I hope in the future there will be a sequel! I can't wait to see the movie, except I don't think it will be as good as the book, as they never are. I was also kink of shock to hear that the person playing ella is 20, I imagined ella to be under 15. Anyway it's a great book... so great I think I'll go read it again right now.... bye ~~~ Thanks for the great book!!

I really, really love this book!
My favorite quote from it is probably.

<< "This fear of heights is an affliction. Especially," I[Ella] added, "as I've grown taller." >>

It's my absolute fave of all time, and a great read, whether you're ten or 110 (okay, so you don't get that old usually, but go with me here)...

This is my favorite book. But I don't own it! Errrrrr. Where can I find it online???

This is one of my all-time favorite books, and I shall always love 'Ella Enchanted'. I would tell anyone to read this book, for it is beautifully written. The characters are wonderful, the story is enchanting, and I just loved the whole thing. You are completley satisfied at the end, and you feel like you have just been happy beyond all words.

This is my one of my favorite books, even though I am sixteen. I think I like it so much because Ella actually gets to know Char, unlike so many "fairy tales" told. I to wish there would be a sequal, too, but Ms. Levine has obviously ended the story. I can't wait for her next book. I would also recommend, along with this book, The Two Princesses of Bamarre and The Princess Tales Series(also by Gail Carson Levine). Thank you so much for this fantastic book!
