Review by: Lindley Walter-Smith on June 05, 2012 :
I've read so many retellings of Beauty and the Beast that i thought that all that could be said already had. This one, though, is something special - especially in the complex characterisation, the multiple viewpoints, and the understanding that this is a story about a girl taught to please men and sacrificed by her father to a husband who needs her for his own happy ending. It's enthralling, and ultimately devastating.

Nearly the last hundred pages of the book are notes and dicussions about the background to the book, which i found fascinating, but it's as well to be prepared for the story winding up far more quickly than you might expect
