I like the whole she can't read therefore is the anti-Belle, but I am increasingly irritated by the lighthearted treatment by the Fae. I mean, first they're all "You killed our friend grr grr" and now... well, now the level of friendly helpfulness only really makes sense towards someone who, I dunno, maybe stole a rose from the garden. I wonder if the author started with that, then rewrote the beginning - but not the later attitudes. It's too sudden, too carefree, and rings very very hollow.

Anti-Belle is a pretty awesome direction to go, but I feel her character has the wrong inner monologue vocabulary for someone who can’t read well. She uses higher level words like tome, and effervescent. I can’t see that her internal thoughts would be such a high level if she had near zero education, and then spent most of her time alone in a forest. Where did she gather knowledge of these words? Why is she not just thinking ‘book’, and ‘bubbly’?

Sarah (calypte) | 84 comments Ooh, excellent point! I might steal that ;)
