Review: Beauty of the Beast - Book #1 Fairytale Retellings - Rachel L. Demeter - March 2017
One of my favorite
fairytales happens to be Beauty and the Beast.
The whole looking past imperfections and finding your true love as it is what
is on the inside that counts, not what
the person looks like. With the new movie
out as well, all spotlight has been on the Beauty and the Beast movie and
theme. In Beauty of the Beast, we meet Isabella aka Belle who lives with her
dad and her evil stepsisters. Her father is getting sick, and her two stepsisters are bleeding her father dry. In
Beauty of the Beast, Belle is the epitome of intelligent and sweet and has
captured the attention of the Viscount whom of course she can't stand. When an opportunity to run away comes up,
Belle goes along with her father, and
during the journey her father is ill. They stumble upon a Castle where the
forgotten Prince Adam lives. When Adam
was a boy, there was a riot and his
family murdered, and Adam scarred for
life. Thus begins the twist of the tale of Beauty and the Beast as we read the
interactions between Belle and Adam through their ups and downs.
The Beauty of the Beast is the perfect read for those who love renditions of
Fairytales and whose hearts are captured
with the tale of Beauty and the Beast.
