The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

The School of Good and Evil - Soman Chainani

Short Review;

I actually really loved this story, that being said it’s taken me a surprisingly long time to finish it, but I defiantly enjoyed it and would recommend it if you’re looking for an interesting new take on fairy tales.


Long Review;

The School for Good and Evil is based on 2 female characters, Sophie who is perfect and beautiful and Agatha who is a bit weird. For Sophie’s entire life she has read and loved fairy tales and practiced being good so she would be swept away into one of her own, all Agatha wants is to live a quiet life with her best friend. But what happens when they both get taken and Sophie gets put in the wrong school?


I really loved this, it opens up a whole new way of looking at fairy tales as well as showing us that acting good and being a good person are completely different. I loved the growth and change in multiple characters.


In the end it comes down to what can win, good V’s evil, friend V’s foe, or prince V’s princess and it’s an absolutely perfect story.


Best quote in the book;

"Agatha, you dressed as a bride for Halloween."
"Weddings are scary."
