I loved this book. I don't know how many times I have said I loved a book, but I really mean it this time. The only picture in the book is the cover art, yet there were times where I could see what was happening. Not all the time, but a good majority of it.
Beauty is a retelling of 'Beauty and the Beast'. The story line itself is the same. While reading, I was asked why I was reading it if I already knew how it ended. The answer is simple. A) I love reading, so why not read it? B) Besides, Robin paints a new light on everything. Reasons for why they lived where they did, why beauty went home after months of living with the Beast... the feelings were strong.
I have heard that books tasted good. No, people did not rip out pages and eat them, but the words were well chose, the sentences well structured, the characters were not flat, but had substance... I believe Beauty is a desert... maybe even chocolate.
