  1. This movie novelization tells the other side of the Sleeping Beauty tale.You see, Maleficent wasn t just some fairy who got mad that she wasn t invited to a party and decided to put a curse on a baby She wasn t as petty as she was originally made out to be.In this book, you ll find she really did have reasons for doing what she did It s a tale of deep betrayal and vengeance, and you won t believe who the true villain is.


  2. Ok so the book wasn t the most epic, award winning thing in the world but it really set up the premise for the movie greatly I only gave it 4 stars because it was very rushed like most movie to book adaptations since it s derived mostly from the movie script This is a whole different perspective of the story like you ve never heard before I cannot WAIT to see this movie.


  3. This is a wonderful story, adapted from the movie of the same name It is a different take on the story of Sleeping Beauty I enjoyed it so much, I went to the library to get the movie.Maleficent is a faerie who, after her parents are killed, is raised by the Fair Folk She finds goodness in everything until one day she meets a human and falls in love with him All is well until he betrays her and she begins her life of darkness and revenge.


  4. This rating is given by my 7 yo daughter, who, despite struggling over some big words, manages to finish the whole book by herself.There was Maleficent s past, which was intriguing The plot twist was predicatble because, hey, it is a fairy tale after all No complaint here.There was this feeling of being betrayed throughout the book, both from Maleficent POV and Aurora s The latter one made my daughter cry.Overall, it s a nice little journey I have with my kid and it s priceless That s been said, [...]


  5. Las novelizaciones no suelen ser el tipo de libro que m s me atrae, pero am tanto la pel cula Maleficent que no pude resistirme Obviamente no es lo mismo, y la adaptaci n est pensada para que sea apto tambi n para el p blico infantil, as que no est hecha con gran profundidad.De todos modos, si les gust la pel cula es muy probable que disfruten tambi n del libro.No voy a entrar en detalles sobre el argumento porque si ya vieron Maleficent lo conocen, y sino, les sacar a la sorpresa sta es la hist [...]


  6. I m a HUGE fan of Maleficent, so when I heard they were coming out with a movie about her, I about blew up I was so excited I was even excited when they announced that Angelina Jolie was going to play her, an excellent actress playing one of my most favorite Disney villains, it was almost too much for me I was at a Target store when I found the book, I got it for a good price and to me, it was a very good book It explained a lot of her character of what we already knew, and what we didn t know [...]


  7. Maleficent is a re telling of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty In this version we see the story from the evil villain Maleficent s POV Although all the characters that appear in this re telling are the same as in Sleeping Beauty, the content is greatly different In this version based on the 2014 Disney movie Maleficent, we find out about Maleficent s background and see her throughout her childhood This book is pretty much the same as the film and although it makes a nice read, it doesn t contain [...]


  8. maleficent while reading the beginning of the book the first chapter or so felt slow to me, and didnt quite grab my attention perhaps because there was so much going on around me while I was trying to read it, but then I sat down again and gave it another shot and from what ive always known from sleeping beauty, maleficent was cruel and just pure evil im glad this book was published to show us another side to maleficent that we never knew how love and betrayal can damage us whom were once happy [...]


  9. This is movie tie in for the Maleficent movie, which I loved The book didn t add anything to the film, though, other than a prologue about Maleficent s parents After that it was minute for minute with the movie, and the language was overly simplified, like the author assumed that very, very young readers would be the only ones interested in this book So that was a bit disappointing I d kind of hoped that it would stand out on its own as a novel But I will give it extra bonus points for presentat [...]


  10. Terrible I quit reading after a couple chapters It looks like most people rated the story movie and not the book There is probably nothing wrong with the story but the writing is horrible The author is telling the reader a movie I had to look pretty far into the book to find the authors name, and the only mention is adapted by This is what happens when a film company writes a book Strip away the imagery and music, don t add any depth to the characters and this is what you get Save your energy an [...]


  11. I read this one BECAUSE I want to see the movie and it always seems better to me if I read the book first.I really enjoyed this story a lot It as compelling and written for easy reading I believe anyone from 10 up would like it.The only thing I really didn t like was that it didn t go along with Sleeping Beauty at all Sleeping Beauty was my first movie in a theater and one that I sincerely loved I can t seem to mesh the two in my mind That being said, it shouldn t take away from Maleficent, but [...]


  12. This is so epic I ve watched the movie first and then I discovered this novelization, and then of course I read it There s a story behind all of us Maybe there are things that we do not know and people who don t seem to look bad as they appear to be.


  13. Well, let s just say I m very much disappointed, but it was a good book.It was a good book, honestly Quickest book reading I ever did Two hours in wee hour I am quite proud of myself ha As the title stated, it was the story of Maleficent Who was she, where she lived, her friends, her first love, her trust, her confusion, her naivety, and most importantly, the story of the seed of darkness that was planted in her heart It was the anti hero Maleficent instead of the infamous evil, evil, evil, drag [...]


  14. This book was a fantastic read I was entranced from the very first page, something that not a lot of books have the power to do Maleficent is just like the movie, the scenery in it is beautiful and the faeries in it are adorable Maleficent s parents only wanted peace with the human kingdom, but the king and his soldiers were greedy and wanted all the treasure and resources that the moors possessed The moors were home to all the fairfolk and faeries and magical creatures where Maleficent was born [...]


  15. But if I know you, I know what you ll do you ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dreamIS MOVIE IS GOING TO BE AWESOME, YOU GUYS While the writing wasn t the best and everything was rushed then again, it s a screenplay to book adaptation, so what can you expect , it was still good nonetheless Can t wait for the movie


  16. That was SO good, I absolutely had to finish it in one sitting It was written so smoothly and represented the movie wonderfully while adding a little extra something to the story line at the same time This one is definitely staying in my collection.


  17. After seeing the movie and now reading the book the story of Maleficent is still as amazing as when I first saw the movie This book was super amazing and I loved it, and it even pulled at my heartstrings just like the movie I recommend everyone read this book.


  18. Well paint me surprised It wasn t bad at all While the writing wasn t award winning, it was much better then some.


  19. Very good book there is 24 chapters and at least 300 something pages In the beginning it talks about her family than the movie does which I admire Most people may wonder When did the movie come out or Was the movie made before the book The answer is that the movie was made in 2014 and so was the book The movie came out before the book I would definitely read the first part of the book and then see the movie All in all it was a good book.


  20. Listened to this on audio in the car with my daughter and loved it She was riveted the entire story as well I love these stories that take the villain and tell their side of the story Not a literary masterpiece by any means, but very entertaining and markedly lighter and less scary than the film adaptation.


  21. CHRONIQUE COMPL TE Si je n attendais pas forc ment norm ment de cette lecture, j tais tout de m me curieuse de d couvrir l histoire de Mal fique En effet, si on est tous familiers avec le conte de La Belle au Bois Dormant, on sait peu de choses sur celle qui est consid r e comme la m chante de cette histoire N anmoins avec la sortie imminente du film ponyme, dont l aspect esth tique lui seul ne peut que donner envie de le voir, cette nov lisation tombait point et n a pas d ue Mal fique est une j [...]


  22. I may be biased when it comes to reviewing this book because of how much I love the movie and Angelina Jolie First off, the book is beautiful Let s just get that out of the way It s all blacked out with fancy black details on every page The sides of the pages are all black The dust cover is all black except for Maleficent And the hardcover is matte black with shiny black thorn designs on the edges Even my fingers turned slightly black from all the ink on the pages This book is as black as my sou [...]


  23. 1.5 starsAnother film tie in, but even less interesting than the MG version.This has from Maleficent growing up, talks about her mum and dad, being raised by the other fairies and playing tricks, and much about her and Stefan s relationship.But after Stefan betrays her, it essentially just follows the film and again adds no depth or insight into Maleficent s character or any other character No POV from Diaval Nothing about Aurora s mum, other than at least we learn in this one that she died an [...]


  24. This book is based off the new movie that is coming out and I for one am so excited for that movie, Maleficent is one of the best villains ever and personally i love movies or books or anything really that s from the villains perspective, when you get to see that maybe they didn t want to be the villain and maybe circumstances made them who they are I loved this book and it just made me so much excited for the movie It s awesome and like all the trailers say a totally different story and it s j [...]


  25. 2.5 stars This was a major disappointment for me The way the book was described, I thought it was going to be of a background story and we would get to see of Maleficent s growing up years and all of that There was only one part that didn t happen in the movie, the part that told how Maleficent s parents had died, and I could have figured that out myself Also, the author seemed to kind of ship Maleficent and Diaval, but never really went anywhere with it So that was kind of confusing And I had [...]


  26. I have never been a fan of Disney movies, feeling they give off this unrealistic view to young girls that life is just peachy fully of silly songs of love and glasss slippers However I have always loved Disneys villians, but Maleficent, oh for she is and always has been the best villian and this book is the cherry on top I LOVE this book, I LOVE this story Going all the way back to find out realistically why Maleficent became hard Showing how she was trying to deny her heart all along For her lo [...]


  27. I really enjoyed learning about Maleficent s childhood and the things that happened to her to make her an evil villain I didn t like that the book and movie didn t have the same major events The book and movie aligned up until about half way then the book took a different direction I guess I can t help but run the movie scenes in my head from watching it a hundred times as a kid All in all, it s a good read to learn about the inner workings of Malificent but don t expect it to be like the movie. [...]


  28. Maleficent, a girl who became evil for some reasons She s kind hearted but 12years before the boy she likes got her wings and she can t fly for 12years The boy steal her wings so he can be the king After 12years later, the boy s have a baby and maleficent come and curse her When the baby grow old, maleficent try to cancel the curse because she notice that the baby is friendly and maleficent solve the problem


  29. Ok book, and I have not seen the movie yet The book was catalogued YA, in my opinion, it s high level children s lit But the story itself was creative, and I liked the overall plot But the writing could have been better, as there were some unnecessary likes in the pages Also, I felt the ending was wrapped up too nicely Yes, fairy tales usually have happy endings, but this is supposed to be a different perspective, it should end with a darker tinge
