Started off promising. Quickly got repetitive. Ending didn't work as well as it could have. Probably could have passed on this one. ( )

I do believe that you are NEVER too old for fairytales, and as with all fairytales there is good and a LOT of evil in The Beast is an Animal. Marketed as a YA book, this is definitely one that many adults will enjoy as much as I did.

I adored the setting of the scene with a farmer and his wife being blessed with twin girls, Angelica and Benedicta. Now these twins are the mirror image of each other but they both carry the mark of the beast (a simple birthmark) so it isn't long before the farmer succumbs to the pressure of the village and casts his wife and daughters out into the fforest. For a while he visits them but as time goes on, they are forgotten. Left to fend for themselves, the girls return and take their vengeance on the village - eating souls of the kind of people who have harmed them. Only little Alys, who struggles to sleep, saw the girls and she is so unafraid of them that Angelica and Benedicta leave her unharmed. The Beast is an Animal is Alys' tale of how she survived and her fight against the thing they call....The Beast.

I have Welsh ancestors so I loved the Welsh setting of The Beast is an Animal, and the story flowed as effortlessly as a babbling brook through the Welsh valleys. I was completely sucked into the story and felt both sorry for Angelica and Benedicta as well as mightily scared of them. They have such power - they can eat your very soul and I, for one, didn't want to come across them on a darkened night.

I completely underrated Alys' strength at first. She is a young child left orphaned but, against the odds, she survives. She goes from strength to strength and like any heroine, I really rooted for her as The Beast continued to cast its shadow over her life.

Don't be fooled by the YA label, this is a dark and scary tale for all ages. It's so imaginative, dark and dreamlike that you will find it hard to put down. You WILL enjoy this or The Beast will come for you! ( )

I took this book out on a recomendation from the library, and I loved it. I think it was my first time reading about Soul Eaters as the supernatural creature and I thought they were fantastic and really well done. ( )

3.5. I liked it well enough until the romance kicked in (the type where she feels tingles for the first teenage male she sees other than the ones she grew up with). Granted, the romance wasn't intrusive or anything but I always linger on it no matter how small a role it plays. ( )
