Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge Reviews

  • Aimee ♥ | Aimee, Always

    This is as unique as a retelling can go, but unfortunately, the writing annoyed me so much that I pretty much cringed every time I read any dialogue. Really, call the heroine “girl” ONE more time,

    I'm one-starring this because I'm mad. Very mad. Let me explain.

    This book turned me off very early with a brutal rape scene, so MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING for that, and it should be in the Goodreads blurb so that any rape survivors know ahead of time before stumbling on that by accident.

    I read 22% of the book in and I cannot possibly see how this man can get transformed into a beast and redeem himself. Because, see, here's the thing: I don't give a SHIT if the beast acts like a completely differen

    This book turned me off very early with a brutal rape scene, so MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING for that, and it should be in the Goodreads blurb so that any rape survivors know ahead of time before stumbling on that by accident.

    I read 22% of the book in and I cannot possibly see how this man can get transformed into a beast and redeem himself. Because, see, here's the thing: I don't give a SHIT if the beast acts like a completely different person that expresses remorse for what he did. The fact of the matter is that he's not. He's still a man that RAPED someone (and maybe others) and I don't like how that is completely brushed aside. It's problematic as FUCK. I don't like that somehow Lucie falls in love with the beast (HER RAPIST) because that is disgusting and not at ALL realistic.

    I'm not sure how this book got published. But I'm FURIOUS.

    SPOILERS FOLLOW, SO DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO READ THIS AWFUL, AWFUL book.

    This should be titled: How to ruin my favorite fairytale 101.

    “Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge” begins with Lucie a girl in need of a job who finds her place working as a maid under a cruel master and when he finds himself transformed into a hideous beast to pay for his crimes and she too is bewitched to watch his suffering until a girl arrives with the ability to set him free if and only if she can fall in love with a monster.

    This should be titled: How to ruin my favorite fairytale 101.

    “Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge” begins with Lucie a girl in need of a job who finds her place working as a maid under a cruel master and when he finds himself transformed into a hideous beast to pay for his crimes and she too is bewitched to watch his suffering until a girl arrives with the ability to set him free if and only if she can fall in love with a monster.

    Let’s get right to it and say this is not your Disney fairytale because guess what ladies and gentlemen the pre beast prince is a serial rapist! But wait before you get upset just know that it’s not his fault because why should a man be responsible for his actions when you can blame another woman and in this case it’s his mother, because why not?

    Please for the love of god stop writing stories that romanticize abusers. I don’t care that they tried to make this as though he was a beast as a man and a man as a beast just stop it. And to have his victim fall for him over the course of this curse is absolutely disgusting and not to mention the complete and total willingness for a three way “agreement” between Lucie, the Beast and this versions Belle because at the end of the day he still can’t be faithful.

    I’m at a loss really this was so awful.

    **thanks to the publishers and netgalley for providing an arc in exchange for a fair and honest review**
