    About 100 pages into Beauty I wasn t sure whether I was really going to like the book, as it kept moving from subject to subject without staying long enough with each one to make it work About 200 pages in, I was convinced the author had far too many ideas for her own good, and no idea of how to weave them together into a cohesive story Despite my misgivings, though, I...

    When people force me to choose a single favorite book, I often name this one It begins as a retelling of Sleeping Beauty Then the time travelers show up and things go crazy from there The book has apocalypse,fairy tales cinderella, snow white, etc , visits to Hell and Faerie, horror, andThe familiar elements react to make a very original whole The book wears its environmentalist and feminist hearts openly, but lack of subtlety doesn t mean lack of power Every time I reread it When people force me to choose a single favorite book, I often name this one It begins...

    This is a deeply strange book, twisting fairytale tropes to tell a story of environmental collapse, destructive religion, sexual abuse, feminism, and gender politics, among many other things including the loyalty of cats, who so rarely get their due in literature I don t know how well it h...

    Now is not a good time to write a review of this, because I am in a bad mood I will do, nonetheless, it.I did have to remove two stars from my 13 year old rating I did not find this particularly beautiful, or as tragic as I remembered, or even particularly clever Luckily, though it did not descend into the overwrought sentimentality I was dreading, except perhaps a little towards the end Even then, though, I maintain that it retained something of g...

    Part speculative fiction, part philosophy, part patchwork cosmology, Beauty is intense It chronicles the life of someone who starts out as a mistrusted halfbreed in an age that values genealogy, and who progresses through multiple worlds, back and forth in time, being entirely too curious about what makes her situation unique Tepper ...

    It took me a while to finish reading this book In fact, when I wasthan half way through, I almost quit, but Jackie encouraged me to finish the story There are several reasons for my reluctance to finish reading the book 1 I wasn t able to fully grasp or keep track of the plot because the main character, Beauty keeps moving back and forth between different time dimensions and different worlds, meeting different characters That was confusing to me So there was a sense of vagueness as It took me a while to finish reading this book In fact, when I wasthan half way through, I almost quit, but Jackie encouraged me to finish the story There are several reasons for my reluctance to finish reading the book 1 I wasn t able to fully grasp or keep track of the plot because the main character, Beauty keeps moving back and forth between different time dimensions and different worlds, meeting different characters That was confusing to me So there was a sense of vagueness as I read One of the GR reviewers called the story convoluted.2 There were too many characters to keep track of Perhaps they weren t fleshed out enough for me.3 The story is unevenly paced It would catch my interest and then lose it again.4 The story seemed disjointed at times, perh...

    I think the most twisted variation on the Sleeping Beauty legend remains Sheri Tepper s Beauty That was a great book, BUT Grim Down, down to Happyland Disposal chute, for unwanted infants Ugh Ol Sheri don t do subtle.Critic Gary K Wolfe said Beauty remains one of the genre hopping masterpieces of the last 20 years, and I guess I d agree, but it s Well Pretty gross at times Sti...

    I loved this book immensely It weaves a tapestry of fairytales, linking Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Snow White in a timeless fantasy.It transported me to the Realm of Fae and I was completely immersed in the novel Sympathetic characters made it easy to love.I s...

    This book is a big hot mess I kept reading because it was such a train wreck, a sick sense of fasciation held my interest The plot is ridiculous Tepper throws countless fairy tales, Bible stories, and unrelated fiction into a single storyline But instead of cleverly weaving together disparate elements, it feels disjointed, haphazard, and nonsensical Her writing frequently throws us such delicious awfulness as his eyes glittered with hectic abandon On top of that, here are my two major pr This book is a big hot mess I kept reading because it was such a train wreck, a sick sense of fasciation held my interest The plot is ridiculous Tepper throws countless fairy tales, Bible stories, and unrelated fiction into a single storyline But instead of cleverly weaving together disparate elements, it feels disjointed, haphazard, and nonsensical Her writing frequently throws us such delicious awfulness as his eyes glittered with hectic abandon On top of that, here are my two major problems with the book 1 Inconsistency The misconception of poor fantasy writers is that anything goes if writing within the fantasy genre Instead, the rules that govern a fantasy story must be evensolid and clear than regular fiction for us to believe it and buy into the world In Beauty, the characters are inconsistent, acting one way for a single chapter and then rand...

    A half fairy girl goes on a long journey to discover the fate of magic in a changing world Normally I approach Tepper like Atwood s genre writing message driven to the point of transparency, but sympathetic and consistently well written But Beauty is a mess of a book It begins as a Sleeping Beauty retelling but crams in Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, and the Frog Prince, growing increasingly predictable it spans a lifetime and jumps between half a dozen settings, the worst of which is an A half fairy girl goes on a long journey to discover the fate of magic in a changing world Normally I approach Tepper like Atwood s genre writing message driven to the point of transparency, but sympathetic and consistently well written But Beauty is a mess of a book It begins as a Sleeping Beauty retelling but crams in Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, a...
