    Description

    "A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog, but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

    "You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell.

    "Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she urn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly...beastly."

    Above my expectations

    I didnt have great hopes for this writing, but I gave it a try and actually ended up enjoy it. Yes...predictable. But sometimes it's nice to fall into a comfort zone like this novel.

    I'll Pass on this Retelling

    What disappointed you about Beastly?

    I love fairy tales, and typically love good modern day retellings. This was NOT a quality retelling. The story was over-melodramatic, to the point where I wanted to rip my hair out. The characters were flat, unoriginal and stereotypes of themselves. They never once surprised me, or even interested me.

    The audio for the book was well done by Chris Patton, but even with his voice, the story left a lot to be desired.

    Chris Patton did a wonderful job

    Bought on Audible

    What I Loved: This was a very good modern re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. In the beginning, Kyle was a very unlikable character that you got to know as the vain, arrogant teenager he was before getting turned. Adrian was the much more human incarnation of Kyle that made him more man than beast. It was wonderful to watch his transformation from arrogant to considerate.

    What I Liked: Will and Magda are fantastic guides for Adrian that show him people can be kind even when they do not have too. He was surrounded by love even if it wasn't from the traditional family structure.

    Complaints: None

    Audio Specific Review: Narrator: Chris Patton did a wonderful job of reading this book with emotions that matched the cadence of the moment.

    Why I gave it a 4: I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderfully told this story was. It was a very good re-telling.

    Who I would recommend it too: YA readers and those who like re-telling of fairytales.

    Beastly is Clever

    I found Beastly to be a clever take off on the Beauty and the Beast story that we all know from Disney. This time it is updated to the present day with the main character being an "I've got it all" guy in high school. After the spell turns his good looks into "beastly" looks, the story really begins. It is totally enjoyable.

    Barely readible

    This books takes a lovely fairy tale ("Beauty and the Beast") and makes it mindless, trite, and boring. Granted, this is a book for teenagers - which is unfortunate because by following the original fairy tale story line, the author is unable to keep his hero from becoming a creepy stalker kidnapper. Granted, the character was never sympathetic, but if I had teenagers, I would certainly want to talk to them about what was wrong with this story.
    Basically, I say skip it.

    Great adaptation of a classic

    This book is a great version of Beauty and the Beast set in modern time. Chat rooms and hints at fairy tales along with teenage life brings a new flare to this classic tale.

    Almost Didn't Read Cause The Movie Was Bad

    But the book was better. I'm glad I read this. The story is so much different from the movie.

    the book is way better than the movie

    I love the book, brings back memories to when I first read it as a teenager, also way better than the movie, I wish thed would have made Kyle/Adrien an actual beast cause the movie look was kinda really offensive towards people that actually look like that calling it ugly etc.
