Whole New World: A Twisted Tale
Whole New World: A Twisted Tale | Liz Braswell
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney's Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish.To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of "Aladdin" in the same way again. Praise for "A Whole New World" "A magic carpet ride of a book! A fun and unpredictable retelling of the classic Aladdin story, a must-read for all of us Disney fans!" -Melissa de la Cruz

Aladdin grinned and wrapped her in his arms. Prince, he could, at this point, take or leave.
The rest of his life with Jasmine, however. . . that was worth everything.

This was a quick read. It was okay. I am debating whether to continue the series. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars. This is the fifth book I have completed for the #JubilantJuly readathon hosted by @Andrew65

Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 11mo

Taken as a whole, I enjoyed this book! It focuses more on an uprising as opposed to Aladdin and Jasmine's relationship, but I appreciated that change. I really enjoyed the way Braswell depicts Jasmine, particularly her efforts to connect with all of her people. I think an opportunity to deepen the themes was overlooked, as I would have liked to see Jasmine take on feminist issues. Her ruling as an unmarried woman still could have been addressed.

It was alright. Most of the dialogue is exactly like the Disney movie. Which makes it drag sometimes and other times brings joyful nostalgia. It was nice to see a different take to Aladdin.

I keep seeing not so great reviews but you know what? I love a fairy tale retelling in any sense so I'm going to read this and love it most likely.

🎧 Book 1/10 of the Twisted Tales series. An Aladdin re-telling! Aladdin is my all-time favorite Disney movie and 2nd favorite Robin Willliams‘ movie. The story starts out just like the movie until we get to the cave then it‘s an all-out crazy ride with Jafar getting the lamp & control of the Genie so you know things are going to go terribly wrong. New characters! Death and mayhem! Rebellion! 🖤 I LOVED IT! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2.5/5 stars. Im starting to realise that these are not really twisted tales. There is a slight inconvenience, but the end pretty much more or less ends up the same, and with happliy ever after. Also the first 35% of this book was the original story that we all already know, just really drug out. I wanted actual twisted tales like the Grimm ones. This just isn't it.

I‘m so happy I finally got to read this story. This was such a fun retelling. This story is so much better than the original. It had more action and suspense. I can‘t wait to read the other stories in the series. This book was so much fun to read. I would definitely read it again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was very interested the whole way through this one. While the beginning was what you will remember from the original cartoon from Disney. There is different vantage points and beautiful narrative along the way. Once the story makes its twist you can expect a bit of a darker take. There is death, plans of war, and a very layered villain that you feel sorry for while you detest him. If you like retellings I would highly recommend this.

This book was just okay. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much, and I wasn't disappointed. I love the Disney cartoon, and I just wanted something light-hearted to pass the time, which this did the trick.

I will check out the other ones in this series because I'm a sucker for all things Disney. 😁

bookishbitch I thought the beauty and the beast one was pretty good. Definitely a darker reimagining. 4y

Took me a while to finish coz I feel like I‘m too familiar with the OG story. There‘s a certain level of expectation to meet.

It goes with the storyline of the OG version. There‘s nothing wrong with that coz I imagined it to be parallel. I wish they delved on Jafar‘s backstory. That would‘ve justified the twist.

It‘s still a good read for kids & kids‘ at heart. Just darker & more gruesome. Don‘t expect a warm, happily ever after-filled story.

I expected more from this. I was honestly kind of bored with this book because it did not seem to have much of a different story. Hopefully the other twisted tales are better than this one.

I have no strong opinions on this one, it won‘t stop me from reading the others but I‘ll probably won‘t read them all and just read the ones from stories I really like. 🤷‍♀️

Book 44 of the year, finished June 9, audio

An interesting take on the story of Aladdin. Not my favorite fairytale, but I enjoyed it enough that I'll continue with the rest of the series. My husband tells me they get better.
