Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge Reviews

  • Tangled N Books

    Thank you to Candlewick Press for sharing an early release of this title.

    I'm in awe and humbled by this clever tale told through the eyes of a lowly chambermaid. I was expecting splendor and grace, I wasn't prepared for the cruelty that comes with the abuse of power and wealth.

    It is a wonder how stories are told of "the prince as the hero and the Beast as the spell" when in truth the Beast is more deserving of love and beauty. We are often disillusioned by a handsome face instead of recognizing

    It is a wonder how stories are told of "the prince as the hero and the Beast as the spell" when in truth the Beast is more deserving of love and beauty. We are often disillusioned by a handsome face instead of recognizing a kind heart, a gentle soul.

    Beast is completely captivating. It is beautifully written and powerful in truth.

    Seriously, I must think this is a 5-star book, or I wouldn't have spent years writing it! But giving my own books 5 stars just seems weird to me. Anyway, the opinion that really matters is yours!

    This is as unique as a retelling can go, but unfortunately, the writing annoyed me so much that I pretty much cringed every time I read any dialogue. Really, call the heroine “girl” ONE more time,

    I'm one-starring this because I'm mad. Very mad. Let me explain.

    This book turned me off very early with a brutal rape scene, so MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING for that, and it should be in the Goodreads blurb so that any rape survivors know ahead of time before stumbling on that by accident.

    I read 22% of the book in and I cannot possibly see how this man can get transformed into a beast and redeem himself. Because, see, here's the thing: I don't give a SHIT if the beast acts like a completely differen

    This book turned me off very early with a brutal rape scene, so MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING for that, and it should be in the Goodreads blurb so that any rape survivors know ahead of time before stumbling on that by accident.

    I read 22% of the book in and I cannot possibly see how this man can get transformed into a beast and redeem himself. Because, see, here's the thing: I don't give a SHIT if the beast acts like a completely different person that expresses remorse for what he did. The fact of the matter is that he's not. He's still a man that RAPED someone (and maybe others) and I don't like how that is completely brushed aside. It's problematic as FUCK. I don't like that somehow Lucie falls in love with the beast (HER RAPIST) because that is disgusting and not at ALL realistic.

    I'm not sure how this book got published. But I'm FURIOUS.

    SPOILERS FOLLOW, SO DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO READ THIS AWFUL, AWFUL book.
