I was really excited to receive this book after speaking to Tiffini over some time, I really wanted to read her work. I wasn't disappointed. It's a nicely written re-telling of 'Beauty and The Beast' but with a twist. It's written from the Beasts point of view, so knowing this I couldn't wait. The Beast was always portrayed to be this bad monster and if you've read or seen Beauty and The Beast you know that's not true, but there's nothing better then getting to go inside the head of the Beast ...more

Thank you Tiffini Hunt for sending me an autographed copy of her book for review!

The last couple of years there has been an awakening with fairy-tale re-tellings. I have read a few of them and really enjoyed them and when Tiffini contacting me asking if I wanted to read and review her new book Beast, a Beauty and the Beast re-telling I was sold. I have never read the original story and my only exposure to Beauty and The Beast is the Disney cartoon. So I was eager to read this story told from th
I'm not really sure how to put into words how I feel about this book. It was a really quick read, and I was actually pretty excited about it. A version of the story from the Beast's eyes - how can I resist? Unfortunately, the book was okay. I'd like to give it four stars - or even five stars, but there were a few issues that I had with it that kept me from going past three stars. First all, the beginning was rather slow. It got interesting a few times throughout the beginning - like his parents' ...more

For complete disclosure, I went into this book expecting it to be a beast-version of Robin McKinley's Beauty (a book I cherish from childhood and still reread today). I discovered Hunt's 'Beast' through Goodreads First reads, and while I didn't win it, the synopsis was so similar to McKinley's work that I went ahead and bought it. When it arrived in the mail, one of the first things I did was look for an acknowledgements page and voila! Not only was McKinley was mentioned, but specifically her b ...more

The story was basically mixed from the disney version and Mckinley's beauty with some changes
The language used was too childish and simple for the characters,
I think it made it lose the romance and the enchanted feel

I really wanted to like this but the prose was childish. Grammatical mistakes made it difficult to follow any train of thought. Just not worth the time.
