Watching the RosesIn this retelling of Sleeping Beauty Alice seems destined to lead a princess's life except for the frightening curse that dreaded Aunt. Wow Heavy subject matter for such a short story Unlike The Tower Room this was definitely easy to trace to the fairy tale it was inspired by Sleeping Beauty But the imagery was none too subtleMore engaging than its predecessor although the plot was ultimately predictable and the journey there was slow and painful It definitely dragged; I think a linear structure would've worked much better for this oneAgain the characters were pretty lifeless and the story flat I think instalove is going to be a recurring thing with Adèle Geras but the main character Alice seemed the type for the 'love at first sight' thing so I guess in this sense Watching the Roses was plausible
