    One thought on “Beauty”

    1. This is an interesting retelling of Beauty and the Beast I really enjoyed seeing the relationship between Alix and Lee, the painter and the deformed man It was beautiful and convincing as it unfolded However, the ending really didn t work It felt rushed, sloppy, and, in some key ways, unnecessary SPOILER What I wanted to see was how their relationship progressed as they worked at being married That really had to bring up a lot of issues for both of them, but it was all skipped over as suddenly A [...]

    2. Alix Miller is hired to paint a portrait of Lee Crompton, who is a disfigured recluse For practicality, she lives with him while she works on it I m not going to say on the plot because the synopsis is pretty self explanatory What I will say is that I absolutely loved this book I ve had Beauty since 1996, and it has made it through every book donation clean out that I ve had It is a quick read I can read through it in a few hours and it is a fantastic story It s on my Keep Forever shelf, and I [...]

    3. I could have sworn I reviewed this Oh well I should have liked this It had all the elements I enjoy It s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast for crying out loud How could I NOT like it The beast was a man from a wealthy family with a disfiguring disease The beauty was an artist who was filling in for her ill father, commissioned to paint the man s portrait Good so far LOVELY so far After they meet, great, I m along for the ride and enjoying it, despite some minor issues I had with the actual sty [...]

    4. I ll love any book that has a disfigured leading character, and what was good about this book was that instead of it being At first, I was taken aback but I can see the beauty there Beauty is in the eye of the beholder it was He s ugly No, ugly ugly Aside from that, the leading lady was the right amount of feminine to make her believable and not annoying So that makes for two winning characters in my book.Lastly, the book is a great realistic version of a re told fairy tale and despite the mood [...]

    5. OH GOD I CAN T STOP CRYINGI love Beauty and the Beast retellings and this one, persuasively modernized to the 1990s, was a treat of a romance.

    6. Recensione referente ad un edizione italiana posteriore su licenza, tulipani viola in copertina.Titolo italiano Gli occhi del cuore.A volte le cose migliori della vita si presentano con un volto inaspettato Solo un romanzo Non importa Dice comunque la verit.Peccato solo per il finale Lo avrei voluto consolatorio e felice.

    7. I love fairy tales, and Beauty and the Beast is a favorite but not romance novels as a genre This is a bit of both.This fairy tale makeover, set in modern times, has some redeeming value in that it s not syrupy.

    8. Oh, Beauty, how you tricked me I was so ready to give this book a rave rating and review I feel so conflicted, I am going to split the difference and write a two ferWhy I want to give this book 5 stars I was in love with idea of a real life Beauty and the Beast story and from the beginning, the author did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions and complexities of Lee and Alix s growing relationship The writing, beautifully done, wrapped me up in the story and held me tight The struggles of Le [...]

    9. I don t know where to begin with this reviewI just LOVED this book It s so beautiful, heart touching and, most of all, realistic A painter hired to paint an ugly man in the backwoods of New Hampshire WHat s not to love about this tale It s bittersweet, and unlike any retelling of The Beauty and the Beast I ve read before As of today, this is my all time favourite book, and I d be reading it for a sixth time and it will still bring tears to my eyes.I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy [...]

    10. First, let me say I am a sucker for anything that reflects the Beauty and the Beast dynamic This short book was absolutely wonderful It was not very long, but that did not leave me feeling unsatisfied in any way by the end as some short novels can The characters were lovely and endearing Once I finished this book, all I could do was sigh and say Oh, my heart One of the best romantic books I ve ever read I would recommend this to anyone.

    11. I love the story of Beauty and the Beast which led me to read this book It started off well and I was enjoying this take on the Beauty and the Beast story However, the ending completely ruined this book for me It wasn t what I was expecting to happen and it is not a book I will be reading again.

    12. This is one of my favorite reads If nothing else sounds interesting, this is what I pick up Its the typical story of beauty and the beast but set in modern times, with the beast being a regular man with a genetic distortion to his body.

    13. It was a good story, but it could have been even better without the swearing and sex Lame additions that don t further the plot at all.

    14. This was a pretty enjoyable read and nicely written, but the fair lack of conflict and terrible ending made the whole thing seem pointless.

    15. Beauty by Susan Wilson is a rewriting of Beauty the Beast with a twist The setting is not a magical fairyland with household objects who are under a spell that can only be broken by true love s first kiss Instead, the story is a realistic portrait of a young man whose own self worth is distorted by a disease which has caused him to gradually become deformed Unlike Beauty the Beast where the beast transforms from a monstrous creature into a prince, the beast in this novel doesn t change his appea [...]

    16. Well, it might have gotten a 4 star rating, maybe even a 5, but the ending totally killed it for me It was such a lovely story, so sweet and romantic and real, and then the life isn t a fairy tale bombshell right at the end that ruined everything I m crushed I was so hopeful for something sweet and good, and it s bittersweet, at least, but mostly sad.I m glad I read it It s a moving story, beautifully written, funny and witty, but the ending is not worth a second read through I really hate sad s [...]

    17. Interesting version of Beauty and the Beast Beauty is an artist so I enjoyed that aspect because of my background Beast has a disfiguring disease Nice development of the story It makes me want to see if she has any adaptations The ending does remind me of the true version of our folk tales before the Disney version of happily ever after.

    18. I enjoyed this modern day version of Beauty and the Beast It s got substance to it and great characters, but I didn t care for the ending.

    19. This is a wonderful book I suppose one could technically classify it as a romance, but it is so much than that Its idea taken from the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast, Beauty brings the story into the modern world and gives it a twist.Alix Miller is an artist and has taken a job painting the portrait of reclusive Lee Crompton For centuries, Miller s have been painting portraits of the Cromptons and this time it will be no different, except it will be Alix instead of her father She arrives [...]

    20. This book is a contemporary 1996 romance based on the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast Alix, who comes from several generations of portrait painters, is commissioned by Lee Crompton, a wealthy recluse, to paint his portrait, as Alix s family has done for Lee s family for over 300 years The catch of course, is that Lee is deformed and holes himself up in his country mansion.The book was ok I definitely thought the characters of Alix and Lee were well written, sympathetic, and engaging, [...]

    21. this book had the potential to be great, but alas, it was not i m not going to lie, i was interested for about half of the book, but then my interest started dwindling Alix was kind of ridiculous She was a bit of a slut, and really shallow she talks about the boys that she has dated and slept with, and mentions that all of them were pretty much ken dolls And, she openly tells a boy that if she was ready that she would sleep with him anytime I also didn t appreciate that the author put in slight [...]

    23. This is a beautiful interpretation of the beauty and the beast story Lee, the hero, is truly hideous on the outside He has acromegaly, a totally disfiguring condition, which has utterly distorted his looks The first time the heroine, Alix, sees him, she is completely repulsed The author unveils the beautiful person within Lee layer by layer, and we slowly learn to appreciate his considerable inner beauty along with Alix as she gets to know him You fall in love with Lee along with Alix, until all [...]

    24. What a big surprise I really wish a happy ending I imagined the child would be with defeat, but I couldn t imagine Alix passed away Oh, they suffered so much to love each other and get marriedAnyway, it is a good romantic novel, and I still like it.

    25. This story had everything, maybe a little too much of it.Alix Miller goes to Riseborough to do a painting of Leland Crompton as Miller s have always painted the Crompton s every generation This was to be different as Lee Crompton was disfigured and he planned never to see this painting and was only having it done because it was a tradition.In the middle of all this Alix s father falls victim to cancer, as her mother had a few years before, and Alix goes home to nurse him to the end After his dea [...]
