I adore fairy tale retellings and I was mighty surprised by how this one turned out. It was more mature and naughty, while also bringing in other characters such as Aladdin, Hansel and Gretel, and The Huntsman. I'm glad I packed all three of these in my weekend bag, as it seems our stuff won't be delivered until FRIDAY. I'll probably pick up the next book in the series as I'm dying to see how this continues on.

This book was a huge disappointment.Let me start by saying I very much enjoy fairy tales and their retellings. When they are well done. I received an arc of this, knowing nothing more than that it was a new retelling of Snow White. I was suitably excited.The book looks lovely. It's a lovely little hardback, nice cover, pretty illustrations inside, fancy font, only let down by the out-of-place photograph of "Snow White" on the back jacket. My first concerns were (1) the lack of synopsis, (2) that [...]

THE REVIEWWhy this book?I love fairytale retellingsWhat I thoughtThis is how a fairytale retellings should be written. Stick to the original tale and add your own spin to it. That's exactly what Sarah Pinborough did with Poison . I just loved her Snow white she was a feisty tom boy who didn't let anyone get in her way. I also loved the dwarfs, there names were very creative. This book was imaginative and sexy. There may or may not be a happily ever after. With that said definitely not a book for [...]

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. I normally don't like remakes of fairytales, but I really enjoyed this one. Also, I am normally not much of a fan of fantasy, but this book was so easy and smooth to read. My friend went to Canada to her visit family and bought this book. We both are enjoying it so much that she bought the other two stories in the series on and we are going to read it for book club :)There were parts in this book that seemed a little random and didn't fit, so that is why it is o [...]

3.75 StarsPoison is the retold story of the fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. At first, this didn't seem too different from the original story we know as Snow White. There was a King and Queen, a step-mother who despised her step-daughter, Snow White with pale skin and dark hair and dwarves who were her friends. Most of this story was told through Snow's stepmother Lilith's point of view (whose granny is the witch in the gingerbread house fyi) and that was pretty interesting. She seeme [...]

EDIT: I KNOW that I just added the second book to my TBR after hating on Poison, but apparently each book in this trilogy links together to explain unanswered questions at the end. THEREFORE, I must, by book law (s. 23 of the Biblio Code), see this series through before I barf on it as a wholeITIAL THOUGHTS: I’m not sure if I want to barf first, then run to Chapters and demand a refund OR run to Chapters first, demand a refund, then barf when I get home.

The problem with this book is that it does not seem to know which audience it is written for. A first approximation guess would be that its written for young adults/teenagers given that the language and sentence structure used is fairly basic, the character development two dimensional (and predictable to experienced or adult readers) but then you get a sex scene on the 4th page. We are not talking anything explicit, but it’s certainly the kind of scene that the parents of a 13 year old might o [...]

I wasn't at all sure I was going to like this book but I was pleasantly surprised that I did enjoy it but I didn't feel like it had blown my mind with something new. I won this book and the sequel Charm in a competition so considering I didn't pay for it (and I would never pay £10 for a book this size, it's tiny no matter how pretty it is, meaning I'm unlikely to buy any further books in the series). It was a nice idea but the actual writing let the book down big time as you just cannot like th [...]

Not really impressed! Too simple for adults, too explicit for youngers. I expected more. I liked the mixing of different fairy tales though.

Тъй като обожавам приказките нямаше как поне малко да не се вълнувам за този нов прочит на приказката "Снежанка" - това бе и единственото, което ме привлече към романа на Пинбъра - "Отрова". Далеч нямах високи очаквания към книгата и все пак някак си тя успя да ме разочарова. Ли [...]

Sarah Pinborough has woven a wonderful little tale based on the "Snow White" original fairytalewhere our heroine is not quite as snowy and white as she once was, and the evil Queen has hidden depths and an agenda not seen in the wonderful world of Disney. I will caution - this is for adults, don't be reading it to the little ones, this one is all for us grown ups (well those of us who are perhaps not QUITE as grown up as we appear!) Ms Pinborough is adept at weaving in elements of the story we a [...]

An excellent rewrite of Snow White and the 7 dwarves. Snow White is not the innocent maiden of Disney fame. She's not your typical fairy tale princess either. 'Snow' shuns convention and regularly goes skinny dipping with a bunch of dwarves in the forest she swigs beer and loves practical jokes and that's just for starters! Everyone loves her (apart from the evil stepmother of course), but will she find true love and live happily ever after?The re-write was cleverly done. Snow became a voluptuou [...]

This is a difficult book to decide about, for me. I like the narration, the way it’s written; it’s deceptively simply written, with that fairytale like tone, and yet there’s a lot of rewriting going on. It’s not just the sexual content, but also the ambivalent attitude to the same. There’s casual sex, sex for power, shameful sex… You’d think it would be sex positive, with the powerful figures of Snow White and Lilith, but it really isn’t; sex is a thing that people seem to use to [...]

This is a lovely book to handle, and has some incredibly beautiful drawings inside indicating chapters and ‘pauses’, all in 200 pages. A “Snow White” re-telling, which originally I thought might be a Young Adult interpretation – be it a dark, mysterious version.Oooops; within 5 (FIVE!) pages, I was brought up short with an exquisitely depicted sexually descriptive scene! OK, definitely Adult! (Yeah!)So, we have the well-known fairy-story re-told in a (decidedly) different way. The wick [...]

Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewOn m’avait offert ce livre il y a bien longtemps à sa sortie mais c’est vrai que j’ai attendu pas mal de temps avant de me plonger dans l’histoire. Pas mal de chose me donnait envie dès le départ, tout d’abord la couverture qui il faut le dire est vraiment sublime mais aussi le résumé qui mêlait contes de fées (quelque chose que j’adore) et idées originales de l’auteure ! Mais c’est aussi pour cela qu’on a de grandes attentes pour l [...]

Ce livre est court et se laisse lire, mais je n'ai pas toujours compris les directions que l'auteure a choisi de prendre, je n'ai pas été super emballée par cette réécriture que j'ai trouvé incomplète pour ma part. La seule raison qui me donne envie de découvrir la suite c'est la fin de ce premier tome qui nous prend clairement au dépourvu. Je m'attendais à plus et à quelque chose de différent également.

I actually didn't like the book really muchThe ending was horrible, the characters weren't what I expected and especially the Prince was the worst of them all. He just was the p***y in this book, really. I wanted to see more from this book and maybe I won't read the next one from the series I'm sorry.

Ако харесвате преразказани истории на любимите си приказки, то тази книга е точно за вас. Когато започнах да я чета си мислех, че ще е поредната посредствена история, но се оказа, че греша. В тази история, лично за мен, злата кралица беше много по- интересен образ от Снежанка. В [...]

After reading my first Sarah Pinborough book, Behind Her Eyes, I couldn't resist looking through her back catalogue. The amazing cover of Poison caught my eye and once I knew it was an adult retelling of the fairytale, Snow White, I just had to buy it. Even better, it's part of a trilogy with Charm (Cinderella) and Beauty (Sleeping Beauty) completing the set. I have to say that if you want to read these books, do go for the hardbacks as the colours when they catch the light are simply magical.Th [...]

Rating this was so hard. After a pretty dull beginning I enjoyed the middle portion of the book only to feel like I'd been kicked in the stomach when I reached the end.Spoilers ahead.It was just so disappointing after the positives I'd heard about the book. The 'modern spin' that the blurb talks about is anything but in light of the conclusion. In some ways it reminded me of old school Hollywood where any female character who showed even the slightest evidence of sexual promiscuity had to endure [...]

I love fairytale retellings. When I saw this I knew straight away that I'd read it. This is told mostly from Snow Whites stepmothers, the evil queen, POV. She is only a few years older than Snow White and was forced to marry the king. She is unhappy and extremely jealous of Snow. Poison is dark, delicious and not something you would read to your kids ;) The author took a classic fairytale and made it her own. Lilith is everything an evil queen should be but you see how and why she is like she is [...]

Taking its cue from the Brothers Grimm, this version of Snow White is dark and sexy and brutal, but certainly not the one that most of us might remember. There’s a wicked queen, a handsome prince, a beautiful and spirited princess, dwarves and a poisoned apple but the similarity to Disney ends there. I don’t tend to read fairy tales (even the bedtime ones I read to Matthew are several years in the past) but thoroughly enjoyed the mixture that Sarah has created - modern sensibilities (more ex [...]

A bit short, but a new take on Snow White that also has Aladdin (as a bad guy!) and the witch from Hansel and Gretel. It's pretty fun if you remember that it's a fairy tale retelling and sometimes princes fall in love with sleeping princesses.Or do they?

Originally published at Risingshadow.Sarah Pinborough's Poison was a pleasant surprise for me, because it was a dark and excellent fairy tale for adults. This Titan Books edition made a huge impression on me, because it was my kind of a fairy tale (I've always loved dark retellings of classic fairy tales and this modernized fairy tale had all the elements needed to charm and impress me).Sarah Pinborough gives a fantastic new twist and punch to the classic and beloved fairy tale of Snow White.

Non, mais c'est quoi cette fin!!!Alors que ma lecture a été "bien sans plus", la fin me donne vraiment envie de connaitre la suite de cette série. Le début est plutôt plaisant sans être transcendant. Il n'y a pas tellement de changement par rapport au conte original de Blanche-Neige dans ce premier tome, sauf dans les toutes dernières pages, qui sont (je me répète) juste hallucinantes!Certaines choses m'ont un peu fait tiqué, notamment les scènes de sexe, qui n'apportent pas grand-cho [...]

Когато имаш за цел да направиш приказката "реалистична", се получава нещо като "Отрова". Простият пример - понеже в приказките не се набляга на въпроса за спалнята, хайде тук да бутнем малко повече еротика.Книгата всъщност не е лоша, въпросът е как възприемаш погледа на автор [...]

Fairytale retellings seem to be forming into a little sub-genre of their own at the moment. This is something that I’m very pleased about, as I’ve always adored fairy stories, from the Disnified to the more disturbing, from the faithful adaptations to the clever re-workings, and those adapted to fit a modern or sci-fi setting. No version of a fairytale can really be wrong, as they are more fluid than that; they tell us about ourselves and how we view the world, and so it makes sense that the [...]
