    Woman in a Dressing Gown review [Movie]  2017-10-13 21:50

    The rain falls hard on a humdrum town... Woman in a Dressing Gown is directed by J. Lee Thompson and written by Ted Willis. It stars Yvonne Mitchell, Anthony Quayle and Sylvia Syms, melody is by Louis Levy and cinematography by Gilbert Taylor. It's something of an inauspicious title, a title hardly conducive to making this piece of movie leap out at you, to scream that it's essential British cinema. How unbelievable to search that not only is it a title completely befitting the material being played out, but that it is actually essential British cinema. It's small known and very under seen, in fact myself was only introduced to it by a Canadian friend! The story centers on a London family of three, husband is away earning the corn at the office, teenage son is just starting out in life after school, and mother? She's on housewife auto-pilot, but disorganised with it. Her auto-pilot globe is shaken to the core when it is revealed that husband is having an affair with his private secretary, a intelligent and attractive younger sort who is demanding that husband divorces wifey or it's all off... It sounds very kitchen sink, but actually it's not, it's a very smartly written picture giving credence to mental illness, to the shattering blows of infidelity, of a crumbling family dynamic, a family that in truth is homespun. Ordinary? Yes, but safe as the red brick built poky flat they dwell in. We are not asked to take sides here, to chastise or judge, Thompson and his superb cast merely ask us to delve into their world, to understand it, the psychological humdrum of 50s Britain, the starkness of marriage does mean growing old together, but that nobody ever said it was going to be easy. Looking at it now it can be viewed as a very necessary movie in the trajectory of British cinema, Mitchell's hero is the fulcrum, making the movie a must see as regards the evolution of how women have been represented in Brit cinema through the years. Thompson, better known for tough macho fuelled films on his CV, does a unbelievable job in letting us feel the anguish and emotional turbulence. Hazy camera shots couple up with stark framing of the objects in the cramped flat, all marrying up to the fractured nature of Amy & Jim's marriage. There's even humour to be found, very much so, with Louis Levy's musical cue accompaniments deftly shifting from seething passions to Ealing like comedy as the home life of Amy is scattergun in execution. Kitchen sink, social realist, proto realist and etc? No! This has no pigeon hole to be placed in, it's just terrific movie making, from the writing, the performances, the direction and its worth to anyone interested in classic British cinema, this demands to be sought out. And for the record, the latest 20 mins of movie will move and invigorate the coldest of hearts. 9/10

    Beauty Rivalry: Dress up Story review [App]  2018-12-29 21:0

    The user interface is confusing and half assed, and the plot directly rips off Royal Chaos. Have fun with your lawsuit when y'all obtain one. I only gave this another star because at least the emperor in this android game isn't a total douchebag like in Royal Chaos.

    okay, I swear, this is just a knock off ver of Royal Chaos. which that android game is actually ten tikes better and even better quality. the art is amazing and I had hoped that this wouldn't just be a copy. the voice acting is also strange and unclear.

    I'm not sure how i feel about the android game developers completely ripping off the long existing series Empresses in the Palace(just happened to have watched it on Amazon). this also feels like Royal Chaos with its own twist which is not poor but still this story line is literally someone elses work......please think about giving credit where its due. content creators have no morals as of late

    It is like royal chaos. But like in royal chous the ad says you can walk around and do all that stuff, but i cant seem to obtain far enough to do all the fun looking items that you see in the ad. So until it gets better and not hard to do the items i would like to do i wont play. It is a fun android game if you havent seed the ad and expected nothing from the ad.

    While it's fun to play a android game about a various time, the happenings in this android game too closely follow the same as a more famous chinese harem android game we all know. Even the whole "you killed my beloved cat" routine.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    This book really touched me as I am a missionary and see such need for women around the globe. I cried when the girls were beaten and I laughed at the cultural faux pas. Throughout the book you can feel Deborah's love and compassion as she herself is being reinvented after an abusive marriage. The love from the Afghan women runs deep as does Deborah's love for them. May these women continue to grow in self-sufficiency and may their lives continue to heal from their different abuses.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    The reasons why I liked this book so much are that it was written by someone very, very various from myself but still coming from the heart. I would never, for example, even wear makeup, and have not visited a beauty salon in decades because I don't chop my hair. Yet i have a fascination with other cultures and highly appreciated her look into this one in a method I could never have achieved even had I visited Kabul myself. Now, of course in 2016, I wonder how it has changed. But cultures change very slowly and women are women, so I'm sure the look we got in this book is still authentic. For me, it was a page turner. I've had mates from the Middle East and knew they were unable to tell me what it was like for them there.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    This is a well constructed memoir, and seemingly extremely significant period of time and put in the author's life. It is an surprising endeavor for a woman--one passed her spring chickenhood; especially. I could go into amazing detail about her trials and troubles, but it's really her accomplishments that is the real essence of this book.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    "Kabul Beauty School", was a book that kept my interest. As a reader, I understand that author Deborah Rodriguez, wanted to support women economically by opening Beauty Schools in Afghanistan. The culture there is very various than what we know in the U. S. I felt that Ms. Rodriguez could have helped women in the U.S. by operating Beauty Schools right here. There are a lot of people in America who need support economically. However, "Kabul Beauty School", was an eye opener into a various culture. For this reason, I found it to be an interesting book.

    WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY THAT GIVES A INTERESTING VIEW OF THE LIFE OF WOMEN AND LIFE IN GENERAL OF WAR TORN KABUL. YOU WILL BOTH LAUGH AND CRY ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES THERE. IT IS EYE OPENING HOW SHE COPED WITH CULTURE AND TRADITIONS IN THIS VERY CONSERVATIVE SOCIETY. YOU ALSO GET GOOD INSIGHT OF WHAT LIFE IS LIKE WITH THE TALIBAN AND HOW ALL THE AFGHAN PEOPLE HAD TO SUFFER. DEBORAH RODRIGUEZ WRITES IN A VERY SENSITVE AND HEART WARMING WAY.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    This book was a surprise. Unlike most books that come out of the latest Middle Eastern focus (Kite Runner for example), the author of this book doesn't spend much time at all with the why's of people's behavior or even her own. A beautician, the author decides to leave the US to do something for Afghani women by providing a beauty school that would give women a job. She gets NGO status and lots of donations and sets e's a kind of dolly parton of the NGO set. She wears lots of make-up, goes through marriages like toilet paper, smokes and throws temper tantrums when things don't go her way. She sounds unappealing, but she isn't. Her perspective is uniquely various from the "high brow" lit usually read by those from outside the middle east and probably provides a more honest perspective of what everyday life is like--and, it e non fiction book is hopeful even though it ends with the beauty school closed down (again) because of the Afghan government's concerns--this time about terrorism but in the past she had been closed down because of "immorality".The book provides a unbelievable insight into the actual everyday lives of the residents of Kabul but does not provide any insight into their mental life. In some ways, this absence was e author also seems completely clueless about her impact on the Kabul women until after the fact and creates havoc and horrible situations because she doesn't create any effort to understand the culture. This attitude though may be beautiful accurate for a lot of of those who go to the middle east hoping they can "help" and, in the meantime, causing more issues as they attempt to shape the globe around them into the one they are used to from the US.

    Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil review [Book]  2017-11-21 18:0

    Really interesting read, and coming from a related Western background, I could see where her perspective was as she wrote this. But I also understand that her perspective was skewed, and what she experienced and saw for herself meant something various for the women of the country.Having read other reviews, I agree that perhaps Deborah gave away so much identifiable info that she actually placed some of her mates in danger, and I hope this was not the case. Perhaps she should have been concentrating on her own experiences, rather than what was event to the true people she had connected with, who did not give their permission for their story to be told.

    Fascinating book. Provided a behind-the-curtain look at both the life of an ex pat in Kabul and the lives of the women of Afghanistan. The author may have been culturally insensitive on a lot of occasions, but it's that same "damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead" attitude that enabled her to create the contributions to the women of Afghanistan that she appears to have made.

    This book presents a living accurate chronicle of the lives of women in Afghanistan. When the women cry, the reader xries, when the women laugh, the readers laugh. The reader is in turn amazed, horrified, enraged, amused, and inspired. The writing is quick paced and engaging. A mist read for those who would learn about show day life in Afghanistan.

    One of the best deep dives into understanding male / female roles in the middle east, as well as meal for thought for the historical roots of sexual roles in Western society. A amazing read!

    French Chic: A French Woman's Guide To Dress Elegantly And Live Effortlessly Chic review [Book]  2017-11-8 18:1

    I love the every style Sophie Claire shows us. French bohemian chic was made by Hardy in the late 60s. Despite that, her fashion choices are still trendy and modern in today's globe as it was 60 years ago. Francoise favored sleek Courreges pantsuits as well as Paco Rabanne chainmail dresses. I am so okay with the info and knowledge i got from this book.

    The book provided useful information, although it seems that the dress standards have been relaxed somewhat from my latest experience. Everything about this book simply resonates with what an inner voice has been telling me...we really don't need a lot to look good. . It was very informational, I would recommend it to any Francophile out there. Enjoy. I really enjoyed this book. Got everything I wanted to out of it. Such an interesting book to read! This book gives an perfect overview on French chic, but if you're looking for in depth info, this book is a tutorial that exposed the fashion sense of a French woman. You may be a small disappointed. For instance, I would've liked if the book gave more examples of the "signature looks" of several women. Overview of the French principles of style. This book provide the complete info about the dresses, scrape glasses shoes etc. Written in an simple to read and simple to remember way. I liked it.

Jennifer Scott's experience as a foreign exchange student in Paris was a life-changing experience for her and I can see why. She opens the reader's eyes to how the French live their lives on a everyday basis. I wanted to have my own copy to reread different chapters over again and adapt the lifestyle of the French. I highly recommend this book to young women so they can think about their futures and how they may want to live their commended French Chic: A French Woman's Tutorial To Dress Elegantly And Live Effortlessly Chic

    French Chic: A French Woman's Guide To Dress Elegantly And Live Effortlessly Chic review [Book]  2017-11-19 18:1

    I love the every style Sophie Claire shows us. French bohemian chic was made by Hardy in the late 60s. Despite that, her fashion choices are still trendy and modern in today's globe as it was 60 years ago. Francoise favored sleek Courreges pantsuits as well as Paco Rabanne chainmail dresses. I am so okay with the info and knowledge i got from this book.

    The book provided useful information, although it seems that the dress standards have been relaxed somewhat from my latest experience. Everything about this book simply resonates with what an inner voice has been telling me...we really don't need a lot to look good. . It was very informational, I would recommend it to any Francophile out there. Enjoy. I really enjoyed this book. Got everything I wanted to out of it. Such an interesting book to read! This book gives an perfect overview on French chic, but if you're looking for in depth info, this book is a tutorial that exposed the fashion sense of a French woman. You may be a small disappointed. For instance, I would've liked if the book gave more examples of the "signature looks" of several women. Overview of the French principles of style. This book provide the complete info about the dresses, scrape glasses shoes etc. Written in an simple to read and simple to remember way. I liked it.

    A Dangerous Woman: American Beauty, Noted Philanthropist, Nazi Collaborator - The Life of Florence Gould review [Book]  2018-2-25 18:0

    This biography was quite the undertaking--both for the author and for the reader. I had never heard of Florence Gould before, but had heard of the Gould family, so I was going into this with no expectations, other than the title and the synopsis of the seems Florence was living an earlier ver of the Kardashian lifestyle, albeit without the constant glare of cameras and social media. Just about every aspect of her life was a paradox. I never really felt that I got to know who Florence was and I can’t blame the author, considering the estate was not helpful in providing a window into Florence’s life. There is also the chance that any documents or diaries that Florence possessed may have been r the first half of the book, I saw Florence as a vapid, cash hungry woman who was desperate to be noticed among necessary people. As she created her method in life, the author mentioned numerous individuals from her personal life, the arts, the hotel industry and people in politics. In fact, there was so much name-dropping that at times it was difficult to hold track of Florence.I almost abandoned this about halfway through, but as WWII got underway, I thought it might obtain more interesting and it did but even so, Florence kept getting lost in the recounting of other individuals that were weaving in and out of her life. I understand the need to tie these people into her life, but it was very hard to hold track of the latest part of Florence’s life, the story seemed a bit more private and it was probably easier to document what she had done in more latest years. She was a huge philanthropist, but also spent most of her life trying to work happenings to her l in all, this was not a very favorable view of her Susan Ronald did an outstanding job of researching in order to write about the life of Florence Gould. It’s a shame the estate was not willing to let the author access because it most likely would have added to her y thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing me with an advance copy. It was my pleasure to provide my honest review.

    A Dangerous Woman: American Beauty, Noted Philanthropist, Nazi Collaborator - The Life of Florence Gould review [Book]  2018-2-25 18:0

    "Florence understood instinctively that beauty, as well as money, was power; and she had both in abundance."Florence Gould was an intelligent, conniving, self-centered, savvy business woman, but most of all she was a survivor.  She survived the San Francisco earthquake and fire as a child, a major flood in France, Globe Battle I and Globe Battle II.  Her survival skills came into play again with her questionable connections with top officials of The Third Reich which was a contention with FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, after the war.  Hoover tried everything to obtain her convicted for aiding and abetting the opponent to no avail.  She was definitely a force to be reckoned with.Her begin marriage to a very wealthy and shrewd American multimillionaire, Frank Gould, gave her the opportunities she required to become an independent wealthy woman in her own right by investing in true estate and art, though obtained under dubious conditions.  It's known that a lot of of her art purchases were bought from collections taken by the Nazis from French Jews.  Though rumors said she was an anti-Semite, Ronald supposes that Florence didn't care one method or another.  She preferred to have fun rather than worry about "political rumblings", and being the self-serving woman she was, she chose to support both sides when it suited e was equally loved and hated, but she was only interested in power, sexuality, luxury and excess.  With an ego that was larger than life she succeeded in becoming the wealthy, popular and notorious socialite she always wanted to be no matter who or what she had to do to obtain there."She was selfish, egotistical, generous, gorgeous, promiscuous, quick-tongued, and quick-witted. She was never dull, never boring... Above all, she moved with the times and, given the risky sweeps of history in which she lived at the height of society, she became—perhaps, despite herself—a risky woman."In her final years, she was very charitable in giving her time, and cash to amazing causes though instead of creating a foundation in her husband's name her ego got the better of her and she made one in her own nald notes that "Florence’s estate on her death was estimated to be worth some $123.8 million, or around $300 million in 2016."Ms. Ronald does a superb job in her research as seen by her copious notes and extensive bibliography even though The Florence Gould Foundation would not give her access to their archives and created it known that they did not want to have her book published.  I especially enjoyed hearing about the a lot of popular people Florence hobnobbed with--and there were many--including Coco Chanel, Maurice Chevalier, Charlie Chaplin, Winnaretta Singer, Princesse de Polignac, and daughter of Isaac Merritt Singer, inventor of the sewing machine, Ernst Jünger, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Pablo Picasso.  Though the book is about Florence Gould, a very unlikable woman, it is filled with fascinating historical locations and figures.  If  you like autobiographies filled with French history during Globe Battle I and Globe Battle II, you will have fun this book.I received a free copy of this book that I voluntarily chose to review.

    A Dangerous Woman: American Beauty, Noted Philanthropist, Nazi Collaborator - The Life of Florence Gould review [Book]  2018-2-25 18:0

    Susan Ronald's "A Risky Woman" sets out to document the life of Florence Gould. From a young age, Florence seemingly already knew what she wanted out of life - a relationship with a wealthy suitor and the freedom to take and leave lovers as long as she had the desire and ability to do so. Surviving the San Francisco earthquake, which in a lot of respects ruined her family business for the moment, her family sought comfort in France. Her initial marriage was hardly worth the paper that made it. All too soon, she was once more free to search a suitable husband worth her attention and desire and someone who came with a fortune that could offer her security for life. She found all of that and more in the form of Frank gether with Frank, Florence began to sink millions into French true estate, creating a hotel and gambling empire that at times rivaled Monaco/Monte Carlo. The Amazing Depression hardly created a dent in her finances thanks to some fortuitous timing in the sale of stock in the US and the ability to start buying up property throughout France for bargain prices. Her collaboration activities during the Second Globe Battle ensured she hardly suffered from the occupation as she continued to host lunches and dinners, creating a "salon" atmosphere where artists, writers, aristocrats, and other public notables could mingle and seek financial support for their projects or simply have fun the company of other like-minded time went on and Frank's health began to deteriorate, Florence only continued participating in activities that would eventually bring her to the attention of French authorities and the US FBI for her role in different collaborationist activities. No matter, thanks to her cash and connections she hardly suffered any consequences in the postwar period and continued to have fun a life defined by wealth and san Ronald's look at Florence's life also contains numerous digressions to support steer the reader in understanding the globe Florence inhabited. She describes how the Gould fortune was initially made and the infighting that took put among the Gould family before and after Florence's arrival. Having previously written on the period of the Third Reich, Florence's activities during the occupation take up about a quarter of the book but offer a lot of detail with some analysis as well. An problem that might problem some readers are the conclusions that Ronald sometimes reaches without adequate documentation/sources. Otherwise, this is a highly engaging look at the less well known side of a woman acknowledged for her philanthropy and enormous wealth.

    Florence Gould’s French parents did very well in turn-of-the-century San Francisco amassing a substantial true estate portfolio. The San Francisco earthquake changed all that. Although the family was safe, the buildings were damaged or destroyed. Florence’s mother fearing a worse catastrophe took her daughters to om an early age, Florence knew exactly what she wanted: cash and love. Marrying Frank Gould, son of the railway magnate, Jay Gould, she achieved financial success. With Frank, she moved to France where they amassed an entertainment empire of luxury hotels and casinos. Globe Battle II ruined a lot of fortunes, but Florence and Frank stayed in France and prospered much through Florence’s contacts with the Nazis. Not only did she continue to be wealthy, but she bought a substantial art collection much of it looted by the e book is a fascinating, well researched look at Florence’s life. The early chapters show a picture of the young Florence and her determination to obtain what she wanted from life. The middle chapters describing Frank and Florence’s forays into French true estate are interesting, but I think the best part of the book info her activities during the Nazi occupation of France. Florence was a hard-headed woman determined to obtain what she e book is not a fast read. I found parts quite boring. However, the ending chapters were worth waiting for. If you’re interested in the WWII period, I recommend this book. It gives an overview of the period and one of it’s colourful characters.I received this book from St Martin’s Press for this review.

    What can we say about Florence Gould? That she was an opportunist who knew how to obtain and live the "good life", regardless of what was going on out in the world? Yes, that's beautiful much it. From the beginning of the book to the end, author Susan Ronald paints the portrait of a woman who goes after what she wants, usually gets it, and likes eating, drinking and being merry. Even if that meant eating, drinking and being merry with Nazis when so a lot of others in France were starving, freezing or being killed. Florence Gould always had heat in the winter during WWII, always had an abundance of food, including fine chocolate. She never appeared to be in any true danger, even after the battle when collaborators were often murdered or brought to trial. There's lots of well-researched history in this book, but no true hero study. It's just lots of history with opportunistic Florence Gould being in the center of it all.(Note: I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher.)

    I was given an ARC of this book by Netgalley for an honest review. I had heard of the Gould family but not Florence. This woman seems very cunning, the fact that she wanted a certain lifestyle and did whatever was required to live that life. I was a bit overwhelmed with all the info but stuck it out and found the ending was worth it. I think the best part of the book info her activities during the Nazi occupation of France. Florence was a hard-headed woman determined to obtain what she wanted. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history and a small gossip

    A Risky Woman is an in depth look at Florence Gould's life. It was a very interesting read. She was an active participant in the political and social circles of France and Germany. She interacted with the movers and shakers of the era. It was interesting to read the value of her estate. The Gould Foundation refused to give the author access to their archives, but she managed to produce a amazing biography based on the sources she utilized. Thanks to NetGalley for the advance read.

I was a bit overwhelmed with all the info but stuck it out and found the ending was worth it. I think the best part of the book info her activities during the Nazi occupation of France. Florence was a hard-headed woman determined to obtain what she wanted. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history and a small gossip

    A Dangerous Woman: American Beauty, Noted Philanthropist, Nazi Collaborator - The Life of Florence Gould review [Book]  2018-2-26 18:1

    A Risky Woman is an in depth look at Florence Gould's life. It was a very interesting read. She was an active participant in the political and social circles of France and Germany. She interacted with the movers and shakers of the era. It was interesting to read the value of her estate. The Gould Foundation refused to give the author access to their archives, but she managed to produce a amazing biography based on the sources she utilized. Thanks to NetGalley for the advance read.

    Thanks St. Martin's Press and netgalley for this is book reads like a thrilling historical novel. It should be created into a film pronto. We can't condemn those that created poor choices in the past or we'll never be able to learn from their mistakes.

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    I loved this book when it first came out, and I still search it one that I can read again and again. This Beauty is a pragmatic, hard-working daughter in a family which has been coping with a huge change in their lives since their father's business failed and they had to move from their town home to a rural zone far inland. Her sisters, much prettier than she, are just as loving as her father - a nice switch on the more traditional story - all of them create the best of the changes in their circumstances with no 's life with the Beast is consistent with her hero - she makes the best of her life wherever she finds herself.

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    I've read a lot of versions of Beauty and the Beast over the years but I can tell you that I loved Beauty. This is a retelling of the classic fantasy Beauty and The Beast. But with this version, McKinley's "Beauty" doesn't quite live up to her nickname (her true name is Honour) and can be more accurately described as an awkward teenager,a girl who prefers to spend her free time with books, scholarship, and horses. I liked her immediately. I loved the storyline that lead up to her father accidentally stumbling upon the bewitched castle of the "Beast" where he is forced into a promise that will forever change Beauty's life. While Beauty may be a Young Adult book,I think it will appeal to anyone who loves a magical and heartwarming,love story. McKinley's characters are well-drawn, sympathetic and just plain lovable, right down to her horse, Greatheart. I loved Beauty's Sisters and the love Beauty has for her entire family. This created it all the more difficult for Beauty to leave her family to go to an unknown fate with a Beast that has even frightened off the birds and animals of the forest. This is a another one of those books that I had a hard time putting down and I slowed down my reading at the end so I could savor it all the more.

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    I realized when first reading this novel a few years ago, and recently once again, that Disney's story folks are incredibly original and creative, but like most creators, they had sources of inspiration from which they borrowed ideas. I believe that the creators of Disney's Beauty and the Beast found some of their inspirations in the book I am here reviewing, Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin anted, that much is various (I said I believe Disney got some ideas, not adapted the work). For instance, "Beauty" is her nickname, not her name, and she is her tomboyish ugly duckling who hatches into a attractive swan before the end of the story. Other locations of difference are that the household stuff do not talk, at least not understandably, and the servants that do talk, are invisible, and not meant to be understood by Beauty. In fact, her increasing ability to understand them as the story progresses, is a major plot point. In other words, the enchanted servants, as well as roses and so on that one will see in the novel I believe did inspire the film-makers, but that was it. The story is still quite different. Other similarities exist that I can not properly describe without spoiling the whole book. You'll just have too see for e main premise is well-known, but herein is reworked. Beauty lives with her father, sisters, and brother-in-law at his house and smithy. The brother-in-law, is a blacksmith, and a amazing one at that. He grew up in that part of the countryside where they now live after his father-in-law (Beauty and her sisters' father) suffers financial ruin. He warns the family not to go near the forest, for it is evil and enchanted.Unfortunately, not all of the family listens, and on returning from a business trip, Beauty's father wanders into the woods and gets lost. He comes upon a castle, and angers the Beast who anonymously cared for him there. His life is spared provided that he, or one of his daughters, comes to live with the Beast forever.Once the not good old man arrives home and tells his tale, Beauty volunteers to go. Upon arriving at the castle, she is settled in and meets the Beast. He thinks her beautiful, but she is disbelieving. "Beauty" is only a nickname she assumed when she was young and adorable. Now she is a plain, barely pretty, if that, adult. At least, that is how she views bin McKinley was a masterful writer, and it shows in this fanciful tale. The mindset of the overly studious Beauty is one that just drinks in the scenery and makes sometimes foolish, sometimes intelligent, but nearly always witty, observations and assessments of whatever situation she finds herself yond just a talent for prose, McKinley designed an actual system for how the old tale of Beauty and the Beast could work. Why was the Beast connected to Beauty? Why would he die without her? Why? While keeping the original tale's emphasis on love, and the broken heart of the Beast, McKinley suggested something enchanted about Beauty that connected her to the Beast in an almost psychic link that governs the life of the sadly cursed creature. Remember the importance of Beauty understanding the invisible servants that I mentioned earlier?The only part that I did not like was how rushed the ending was. It seemed like a large buildup, and a unbelievable act of world-building on McKillip's part, lead to nothing. Yes, we can see that Beauty and her family are happy, and will live amazing lives, but that is it. We see the beginning and then it is chop short with barely a couple of pages of description. I felt kind of cheated at that. I wanted to see the family meet the Beast. Read of the celebrations, and learn more of the ins and outs of how everyone came together. It was all so rushed, seemingly, and that detracted slightly from the at was, however, the only thing that detracted from the book. All in all, a amazing read, and now one of my favorite books. I used to love the Disney movie version, but the old folk tale best. Now, I also adore this novel as well. That is how amazing it was. Please read it.Highly Recommended.Rating: 4.5/5 Stars.

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    "Beauty", by Robin McKinley is a unbelievable retelling of the very old, very familiar French fairy tale, "Beauty and the Beast". As a life long lover of the genre; I spent an enchanting afternoon and evening reading this creative version. I do not know how I escaped finding Ms McKinley in all the years since 1978. For me, it all began when my eye caught the title, The Outlaws of Sherwood; whilst browsing one of the a lot of websites I find for fresh books to read. The title assured me it had to be Robin Hood, in one form or another. From Error Flynn to Kevin Costner, I have never missed a film about the legendary "hero" and read any story or book that came my way; and McKinley's retelling of the tale created her my "hero" as well. In fact, so enjoyable was her redition, that I immediately upon completion of that book, bought and downloaded "Beauty".As one would safely assume, it is pure fantasy abounding in magic, a attractive girl, a beast/man, an enchanted palace and mysterious events on every page. As this telling is actually a full length novel, it includes a amazing deal more "story" than the shorter written versions that were read to me as a child, and that I later read to my children. The story is well told, the principal characters well defined and consistent; and even knowing the story and being quite certain of the ending, the author manages to maintain a certain amount of suspense. A amazing read if one enjoys fantasies, and I cidentally, 20 years after the publication of "Beauty", Ms McKinley wrote another book with this theme titled, "Rose Daughter"; I finished it today immediately following my reading of "Beauty". . .and I am now engaged in Ms McKinley's ver of "Sleeping Beauty", which she calls "Spindle's End"..

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    Robin McKinley has (at least) two retellings of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, and this is by far the better of the se Daughter (the other of her two retellings) suffers some pacing issues, and I found myself getting bored right where the action should have been picking up. Beauty, on the other hand, does not suffer this problem, and impetus to continue reading to search out what happens next is maintained Kinley does a amazing job making the globe fit together. I liked that you don't really have any solid idea of what time period this takes place. The story would fit well anywhere in a range of several hundred years.

    I first read this book a lot of years ago and I have recommended it to my kids to read, especially my daughters. The story is told in such a magical method that I could see clearly each stage in my mind. Everyone that I have recommended it to has loved it also. Hard to place down once you start. Totally clean and amazing for ages 12 to adult. I love a amazing romance story and this one is the best!

    I loved this story the first time I read it, and was satisfied to search it as a kindle book. The story is so well woven and presents a new fresh look at the beauty and beast story, and ever since I first read it, I now search myself judging all other versions of the old story to this one, and unfortunately, a lot of are left wanting because this one was so enthralling.I cannot praise this story enough, or do justice to the writer's style. This is one of those stories that you have to read to appreciate the art of storytelling by the author. I just want some of her later books were as enjoyable as this one was.

    This is one of my all time favorite books. It is beyond the Disney Beauty and the Beast. Beauty is a regular girl with a realistic, loving family. I don't wish to spoil the story, but this book is worth every penny. Robin McKinley is an interesting author. In her books, I have found that even thought I have multiple re-readings, I search something new.

    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast review [Book]  2017-12-10 18:1

    Ok, allow me just say I am SO harsh when it comes to reviewing books. I almost never love a book. Usually, I like books, think their decent but would never wish to read them again and think some of the book was a waste of time. This book? Absolutely wonderful! The author is so awesome at writing, I've never seen someone be able to weave a story with such attractive descriptions before without losing the reader's interest. The storyline is amazing too, like the classic but with enough of added info and hero developments to fully engage the reader's attention. I really loved how Beauty's sisters were nice even though they were so beautiful, I was expecting the whole evil stepsister kind of attitude. I also liked the Beast's personality and how it differed between Beauty's father and herself. I liked the minor characters of Ger (one of Beauty's sisters' husbands) and the babies they have and the tips the Beast gives to one of these babies as well as the other characters. I like the neighbors and how self sufficient and kind they are with this heartfelt, rugged aspect the author gives them, like they've adapted to the raw and forlorn landscape they live in physically but without losing their sense of kindness. I love how the author portrays this landscape and how the characters depend on each other, with Beauty being the most independent yet finds a fresh sense of dependence as the story goes e really is an amazing character, one I could so easily be mates with. She's braver than I could ever be but she's an avid reader, knows what its like to stand in her sister's shadows, is a bit insecure about her appearance, is confident in herself mentally and physically but not when it comes to appearances. She's a large animal lover, particularly of horses, which I really love about the story because I love horses as well so reading about them, what they look like and behave like in this fiction story was great. I really loved Beauty's horse and how he acted like a huge puppy, following her around, protecting her, but being scared sometimes himself even though he's this giant draft horse. He reminded me of the white horse in the film Tangled, he thinks he's a guard dog sometimes lol! I also loved the castle's enchantments, it was unbelievable yet almost scary as Beauty began to adapt to it and become a part of e only critique I have!! The ending! It was a attractive ending, predictable yes but we all knew what was going to happen. However, it was just too fast. I was a bit confused as to Beauty actually seeing her family parade through the woods or just see it in the mirror? There's no method it could happen in reality, how could they even know about the wedding allow alone obtain there in a few mins time frame when the castle was hours away? It was just method too rushed and confusing, I think the author was trying to end the book on a light note but it really could have used a few more pages so that it actually felt true rather than created up. I obtain the book is supposed to be fiction but the author actually kept a realness throughout the whole novel..up until the very latest pages that it.Overall, I love this book to death! I actually had a hard time leaving its story behind, I was so ready to re-read the book again and I think I just might! Living in the author's descriptions felt so true and magical, I just have never felt that in a story before and trust me, I've read hundreds of books! I'm definitely going to be buying more of McKinley's books, but not a lot of seem to obtain the rave reviews as this one. If anyone has any comments as to which book of hers is most like this one in writing style with a amazing story to go along with it, be free to comment! There is another Beauty and the Beast story of hers, but I hear its not nearly as amazing as this one!!

    I have loved this book since I saw the cover of it in my middle school library all those years ago. I was delighted to read the back and learn that it was a beauty and the beast retelling. I have spent years searching for the printing that had Beauty wearing the pink dress surrounded by the roses. I believe this may very well be the best retelling of beauty and the beast I have ever read. It created me a fan of Robin McKinley. If you love beauty and the beast you will love this story. It is mature and well paced. It will always be dear to my heart.
