But this was the traditional fury beast. Though the online chat room inserts are now outdated, this book maintains a millennial feel. As far as retellings go, this one stays fairly true to the original tale: In fact, I’d go so far as to say the cover’s misleading, and after reading the book, I have to say I had absolutely NO IDEA who the blazes these two people on the cover are, but they sure as hell aren’t in the book.
After some research I found they’re the actors from the screen adaptation of this book, neither of which bear any resemblance to the book characters.
The male lead on the cover looks more intriguingly handsome to me than hideous, which is so disappointing, I’m giving away my copy of this book and replacing it with the beautiful hardcover, because I’ll likely read this again. Kyle Kingsbury is an arrogant douche bag finishing up his freshman year of high school as one of the most if not the most handsome, rich, and popular guys in his hoity-toity private school.
All the girls love him, all the guys want to be him, and he knows this. When he insults a witch in his class, she curses him to live in a body just as ugly as his heart. The next morning he’s covered in fur and absolutely hideous, but because he commits one act of non-douche-ness before he turns to the beast, the witch gives him an out.
If he can find someone he loves, who loves him in return, and who will kiss him before 2 years are up, his curse will lift. His dad contacts every doctor he can find to no avail. Not even a face transplant will help his son’s beastly condition, and so his dad does what every arrogant, self-centered father would: Plus his dad’s credit card.

This was a fast-paced, heart-warming story I read in one night before bed. I did skim the prologue and indeed all but the final chatroom sections, because they skipped forward in time, and I didn’t like the break in chronology of engpish story.
They’re unnecessary, as I loved the story without them. I always enjoy a story told from the villain’s point of view, and I did fall in love with Kyle, who, though perfectly hateable, missed his mom and actually seemed vulnerable next to his horrible dad. I loved the evolution of Kyle. I loved the dynamic between him and his “beauty.
This was a tear-jerker for sure, though predictable at times. Also, the explanation for Beauty’s absence from the Beast toward the end seemed flimsy and disappointing to me. This author is good, and I felt she could’ve come up with something far more plausible than “Oh, sorry, beast, Rnglish couldn’t find your house. The romance is sweet, the language is tame, and the violence is mild.
This book is appropriate for ages 12 and up. North of Normal rating: Life for Kyle Kingsbury is perfect.
Being beasttly a engoish slump is beqstly that makes me cringe. Sadly, I found my self in the middle of one. I read Beastly before it was turned into a movie with the gorgeous Alex Pettyfer as the male lead, and, as a middle schooler with an affinity for the unrealistic, fell in love. I wish I could say that I enjoyed it that much this time around, and even though it took me no time at all to read it, it appealed more to my younger side. The reason I might have enjoyed it more in middle school could have been because the characters were young.
He had two years to change himself completely, offering him plenty of time to get back to his old life, if he could complete the task. It gave Kyle time to contemplate love within the family, and that sometimes family did not always translate to a blood relative. I would love to see her thoughts before her time with Kyle and during, too.
I might end up spending an entire day on the floor of a bookstore to read it. If you love fairy tales, or if you just love love, I recommend anything by Alex Flinn. Her stories are timeless tales with a modern twist that even non-readers would enjoy. I actually adored this engliish.
Given that it had it’s englih cheesy moments, it was still a lovely little, quick read. There are some changes with characters, but that’s to be expected when dealing with a “novel-to-film” work. There were moments in this story when I just wanted to snuggle the characters with love. My only thing with this book and it’s not major or anything is the “chat room” ales. I’ve seen some reviews saying that they don’t like it, or that it’s distracting and whatnot, but I actually became more curious as to the whereabouts of those characters once the story was over.
I’m still lfinn to find out who the bear was though.
And what happened to the mermaid Ariel? Cute, modern day twist on one of my favorite Disney movies. See all reviews.
