I am 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? 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 I am a beast.
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 turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night?

Jan 13, Cara rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Recommended to Cara by: So this book has been around for awhile and my sister actually had read it when it first came out and when I asked her how she liked it she said, “It was interesting but kind of cheesy with the internal dialogue. This always happen to me, I think, It’s going to be made into a movie?
Oh I gotta read that. Then I whip my head around and see I do the engpish thing like everyone else! Final verd So this book has been around for awhile and my sister actually had read it englisy it first came out and when I asked her how she liked it she said, “It was interesting but kind of cheesy with the internal dialogue. I’m definitely more romantic than my sister is. Wlex Kingsbury seems to have everything and anything you would want. He’s good-looking, dad is loaded, and is envied by his peers.
With his sense of entitlement he doesn’t mind gloating and shining his ego on others, and he might as well crush other people’s self-esteem while he’s at it. Well karma or in this case magic will not let him get away so easily with that. He makes the mistake of blowing a bdastly off, and pays dearly for that mistake. Kyle gets turned into an actual beast and he has two years from the date to find true love.
Qlex has to love him, and more importantly he has enlish love them back. But is there anyone really out there who can englush a beast? No wonder Kendra, the witch who places the curse, gave him two years because Kyle has a lot of things to sort through. He reacts how you would expect, devastated I would be pretty bummed too, everyone is at least a little vain and he has to figure out who he is without his looks.
He had wrapped up his worth with his appearance and so it comes as quite a shock when that’s stripped from him. I loved the side characters of the blind tutor and housekeeper. They keep him from going insane. I enjoyed seeing Kyle’s character arc who later renames himself Adrianand just how much his perspective shifts.
I wish I had copied down the bestly, but I really liked the line that Lindy says.
The basic gist was that once you know someone you see past their looks. It’s like their looks is not what you first see, it’s who they are that comes out more.
I believe that’s true. You do start seeing zlex for who they are, and not what they look like. Key message in this book. It was a bit painful to see how “out of touch” Kyle was, but it does portray his desperation well. I rolled my eyes a couple of times when I saw references to Shakespeare, but people who read books love to hear about people who love to read books.
Jane Eyre makes quite a presence here as well, and I thought the loose correlation between the two stories was interesting.
Despite a bit of cheesiness I thoroughly enjoyed reading how Kyle changes to Adrian, and how beauty wlex more than skin deep. This has almost nothing to do with the book, but every time I would see the word beastly I would think about how for awhile people would say that to substitute cool or awesome.
You know, like say this book was beastly!

And for those of you who didn’t know they made a movie of the book! View all 25 comments. Jan 15, Wendy Darling rated it did not like it Shelves: It’s hard to feel interest in characters who are so shallow and dull. An interesting concept, but a book lacking in any real depth or beauty or emotion.

View all 17 comments. Enjoyed it wayy more than the movie. The book gave more depth to Kyle’s character, feelings, perspective of things, and how he saw the world, than I thought possible and I’m so glad for it because it made this an amazing story! I thought this would be a bit boring due to the fact that Kyle was a wealthy news anchor’s son, and also that entailed him being snobbish, rude, selfish, vain, unfeeling and spoiled Lindy was the perfect heroine, without even knowing it or englosh She was the breath of fresh air that Beast,y was unconsciously searching for Turned out he no longer thought that looks were everything by the end of his story as ‘the beast’ lol.
Mar 09, Mario flnin it it was amazing.
