WHO HAS SEEN BEAUTY AND THE BEAST AND WHO LOVES IT? I need to know everyone’s opinions stat! I won’t be able to go see it until my family comes to visit later this month, and Belle is my spirit-princess (that’s now a thing).
With that being said, you can only imagine how pumped I was for this retelling. The beast and the beauty gender switched? That’s amazing. Why hasn’t anyone ever thought of that before? I love the idea of gender switching stories like that. This story is so male-heavy too so it was just a wonderful read.
The only reason my rating is a little low is because I didn’t really connect with the characters as much as I wanted to. I like to dig deep into the minds of a character. I like to learn their quirks and bad habits and horrible personality traits. I didn’t really feel that here. It was all a little surfaced to me.
What I did love about it, is that it is completely fairytale. You get the whole package of fairytale with this. It is sweet, even though it could have gotten darker for my twisted mind, it was insta-love, which is only expected in things like this, and it was “and we all lived happily ever after” type of a feel. I needed that and it got me pumped for the movie.
