    Of Beast and Beauty really did surprise me.Prior to starting this retelling, I was absolutely certain that the Beauty aka Isra in this story would be the Beast , but I soon discovered that I was on the wrong track There is no Beauty and there is no Beast, which is what makes this fairy tale retelling so intriguing and memorable Isra s kingdom is falling apart The only thing that keeps it

    The BatB checklist BeautyIsra is not the conventional Beauty For one she is blind, but her narrative didn t really feel like she is blind I mean dude, she rappells from her tower to the garden way below Daredevil is the only blind person I know who can do that Second, she wasn t a beauty, at least for the entire first 70% or so I was under the impression that she isn t conventionally beautiful

    Rating 4.5 StarsEvery good fairy tale has a few critical elements We have our heroine and our hero, their epic tale of romance, the obstacle in their way, and, most likely, there is a curse to break as well Beauty and the Beast is easily the best of these fairy tale stories, farromantic than Snow White, much darker than Sleeping Beauty, and all togethersatisfying than Cinderella With Of Beast a

    This book was absolutely nothing like I expected Even the blurb didnt give away the fact that this was a futuristic sci fi and not a high fantasy And it wasnt much of a Beauty and the Beast retelling, either There was not much left of the original tale The only similarities I saw was that their love could break a curse, but even the details of that were very different Besides the drastic change
