Before reading the book, I've had the privilege of watching the movie version. I have to admit, the beast on the movie was much more original with all the computer chips and things on his face, compared with the one on the book looking all beastly with furs and claws!

I enjoyed reading the was a light read. However, the story cannot be said as original as I'd like it to be. With all the roses, time constraints, a true love's kiss ... it's all Disney to me.

What stood out though is the undying superficiality of humankind. I think it will always stand out on account that it never does cease!
