Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite fairy tales and although Beauty is a good retelling it was still flawed. There were times when I skipped over some of the laborious descriptions to get to the action. I wanted to know more about the enchantment and how the Beast became a beast and what he was like before his transformation.

I needed more of an ending than the one given, it was too abrupt. I wanted to see Beauty introduce the Beast to her family. I wondered how her family and friends knew to come to the castle. Oh and how did Robbie get to Blue Hills so fast or was that more magic? Did Beauty’s father and Melinda’s romance mean they would be married as well? If so, would they live at the Griffin, at the house or build their own? So many questions and so few answers.

I enjoyed the story but I was a bit frustrated with the ending as you can probably tell.
