Book Description

Jan. 23 2012

See it through both their eyes. Beastly

I am a beast.

A beast. You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. And I'll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

Lindy's Diary

Diary, I am locked away . . . with no one to confi de in but you . . . and him. His fur, those claws—they caught me off guard at first, but now I'm noticing something else about him—something deeper. It's the look in his eye. It tells me he's got a secret to keep. That's okay—I've got one, too. I think I'm falling in love with him. . . . Lindy

5.0 out of 5 stars Deluxe edition is...more than I hoped Feb. 18 2012
By Annette Nenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I heard that the Beastly deluxe edition would include Lindy's Diary-it was a must have for me. I already had the original book, and to hear there was more to the story, I jumped at the chance to get it. I enjoy reading Lindy's thoughts/views in juxtaposition to Kyle/Adrian's view. It gives me more of the story from both perspectives and I just love it.

Unfortunately, there was a glitch in publishing. A few books, mine included, were missing manuscript lines. The fix-I got a replacement from Amazon (where I got it from). I am returning my defective copy and they will be sending me the corrected and complete book.

Meanwhile, I'm rereading my regular edition, in anticipation of the deluxe edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Book but Missing Complete Lines!!! Feb. 15 2012
By Cyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this book because I like the movie (no matter how many people rag on it). And believe me, I loved the book after I read it.

BUT!!!! In this particular edition (which is the one I bought, though not off this site), it is missing complete lines. ESPECIALLY in part 4. I don't know if this was in a few printings or all of the printings of this particular edition, but be cautious. It is after a break in part 4 and lasts throughout most of the rest Beastly. It occurs between the last line of one page and the first line of the next. There will be a complete line that will be missing due to a screw up in the margins, and one of the easiest ways to tell is that the page number is higher in this part of the book than when it originally started.

I haven't read Lindy's Diary to know if it does it there also, but I would rather spend my money on buying both books separately than waste money on this one, as I will be demanding a refund from where I got it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Beastly April 11 2014
By Haley Keller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'd been wanting to read this book since I learned about it back when the film was coming out. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, and I was excited to read an adaptation of it. I have to say, that this book is really similar to the Disney version of the fairy tale except more modern. There are differences, but once Kyle had been cursed, I could easily follow along with what was happening and it seemed to follow the plot of the Disney version fairly closely.

It took me a bit to get into the book because of it being told from Kyle's perspective. Since he is the beast, it is no surprise that Kyle is not at all a likeable character at the beginning of the book. I'm not someone who thinks characters always have to be likeable, but he was someone very frustrating to read about for quite a while. I stuck with it because I knew that was the point of the book and he was likely to grow over the course of the novel. And he did. I actually think the author did a great job with that. The progression happened at a nice pace, and it was gradual. He wasn't suddenly a better person. He gradually realized how horrible he had been and it was a process in order for him to become a better person.

I have two somewhat negative things to say. The first is that there were occasional parts of the book where there would be awkward wording. A lot of it was in how Kyle talked after becoming the beast, and that was even acknowledged at one point when Kyle said something about how Lindy made him talk like a romantic lead from one of her favorite books. I didn't like that at all. It felt extremely out of place and unrealistic. I think it might have been an attempt to make things more fairytale-esque, but it didn't work for me. Most of it just seemed off, and I don't think it gave off whatever feeling the author was trying to create.

The other part I didn't like that much was the random chat room sections. I didn't think they were necessary, and the book would have been better off without them. They didn't connect to the rest of the story, and you would never know Kyle was visiting a chat room if it weren't for the actual chat room sections of the book. It felt like they were just there to throw in other fairy tales to the story, and I didn't like it at all.

Overall, I did enjoy the book. It definitely gave off a similar feel to the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast. I'm not familiar enough with other Beauty and the Beast stories to say how it compared to those. It was a cute story though. It wasn't realistic, but I was expecting that going into a book based on a fairy tale. I thought it was fun and enjoyable.

because instead of having her point of view that was great it was false advertising because it had the whole book beastly @ beginning so I wouldn't have bought both books had I known
4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome new take on a well-known fairy tale! Jan. 22 2013
By Sherlyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Oh, believe me when I say I wanted so much to give this book a five star rating!!! Unfortunately some elements didn't really mash up to make Beastly a five star book for me, making this a 4.5-star rating!

First off: I thought I knew this was going to be a five star book when I read the first page. Flinn had me hooked on Beastly from the start and I was thoroughly enjoying everything from Kyle/Adrian's POV. Seriously, it was a real good story. The only thing that just spoilt it all was the anticlimax sort of ending. I think Flinn could have wrapped up the ending with more flourish.

Nevertheless, it IS a really great book by its own standards and I really liked how it parallels Disney's Beauty and the Beast (I loved the snowball fight part!!) to a great extent. Though predictable (and by predictable I mean it in a good way), it's nice to see a new take on already-familiar events and how other circumstances lead to the more important scenes. Flinn did that very well.

Flinn had me guffawing at Kyle/Adrian's hilarious attempts at romance. I did hate him at the beginning, of course, but when he's trying to break the spell he's sooooo desperate and willing to try anything to get his normal self back. I feel sorry for him when he tries so hard but eventually fails at things he attempts on. Lindy was...okay, but I think she could have shown more passion. Will is an all-time favourite character and Magda's simply wonderful!

I'm hoping to see the movie adaptation of Beastly (: I really hope Cloaked gets made into a movie someday as well!
