I really enjoyed this book. I liked it even better than The Princess and The Goblin. This one had much more depth. George MacDonald had an uncanny knack for understanding the human psyche and all the elements contained in it. It is much more than just a "children's" book. There are different levels and layers in this that will be enjoyed by adults, as well. It presents morality, faith, etc. without being the least bit preachy and I think it will cause the reader to take a look into his own soul to see if he is becoming a beast or is, indeed, still a human.

I liked the ending. It may seem depressing to some, but being a pragmatist, I found it refreshing because it was a more realistic, unsweetened ending.
