I am a beast.
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. 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.
Its ssssooooo different from the movie. You dont even know. Not going to lie though. I saw the movie, loved it to death and was like,.. I need the book.. Like yesterday! So I bought it within the day and it arrived about 2 weeks later. I started reading that same night and within the first page I was like oh... Okay this is already super different. I continued to read it, I would picture the characters from the movie. It was hard though, since the characters are younger in the book XD But like seriously, it was such a great book. There are many details that are different, but I really liked the whole in depth thoughts that Alex had and just that a lot more time passed in the book than it did in the movie. I love the way Flinn writes, I am just in love with the way Alex writes. I cant even.
