Romantilise “Kaunitari ja koletise” muinasjutu tõlgendus, milles kaasaegse New Yorgi rikaste ja ilusate laste lillelist elu kirjeldav sündmustik muutub kiiresti dramaatiliselt süngeks ja mõtlemapanevaks. Raamatu peategelane, eliitkooli staar Kyle, on tõeline tänapäeva maailma “prints”: ta isa on meediatäht ja raha on neil nagu raba. Ja otse loomulikult on ta pealiskaudne, enesekeskne, julm ja kiusab neid, kes pole piisavalt “ilusad”. Karistuseks muudetakse ta koletiseks – täpselt selliseks kihvade ja paksu karvkattega elajaks, nagu muinasjutuski. Ja päästa saab teda vaid tõeline armastus.
Kuigi loo käik on kõigile hästi teada ja kirjanikule võib nii süžee arendamisel (kohati liigne konstrueeritus, kust traagelniidid läbi paistavad) kui oma tegelaste motiveerimisel (eriti kangelanna Lindy puhul) nii mõndagi ette heita, julgen “Koletut” siiski soovitada. Lugu on kirjutatud väga hästi tabades kaasaegset keelt ja andes edasi noorte mõtteviisi ja suhtlemismalle, mis eriti nauditavalt on esitatud koletiste vestlusgrupi veebilogides, kus Koletis arutab oma probleeme samuti moondatud Grislipoisi, kusagil Euroopas asuva näkitüdrukuga (kes peab plaani armastuse nimel loobuda oma häälest, et saada jalad ja lahkuda merest) ning muudegi veidrate olevustega.
Eraldi väärib äramärkimist Alex Flinni loost koorusv nn teine moraal klassikalise ja ilmselge “oluline on sisemine ilu, mitte väline” kõrval – nimelt on ilus Kyle kasvanud sisemiselt koletiseks oma vanemate hoolimatuse tõttu, narkomaanist isa tütar Lindy on aga tema vastandina suutnud sellest hoolimata seesmiselt kauniks jääda. Raamat tõstatab teravalt ühe praeguses ühiskonnas palju kõneainet leinud probleemi vanemate vastutusest oma laste ees.

so a few weeks ago I watched the movie version of this book and that in turn made me curious about the book. I actually adored this book. Given that it had it's total cheesy moments, it was still a lovely little, quick read. There are some changes with characters, but that's to be expected when dealing with a "novel-to-film" work. There were moments in this story when I just wanted to snuggle the characters with love. My only thing with this book (and it's not major or anything) is the "chat room" experience. I've seen some reviews saying that they don't like it, or that it's distracting and whatnot, but I actually became more curious as to the whereabouts of those characters once the story was over. I'm still trying to find out who the bear was though. And what happened to the mermaid (Ariel)? Is her story based on the original book where she turns to foam (I know it's mentioned, but did it HAPPEN?) or was she able to swoon her prince in the last minute and have happily ever after (like in the animated film - though I seriously doubt it). Cute, modern day twist on one of my favorite Disney movies. I will be continuing the story.

I give the writing two stars, but the readability four stars, which averages out to three. As a re-telling of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" tale, it definitely honors tradition while adding a lot of modern shenanigans (most notably, online chat rooms scenes where the Beast commiserates with other transformed fairytale characters through a kind of support group).

Honestly, I don't know why I liked this as much as I did. It's really not that great, but I couldn't put it down. It's kind of like a less offensive Twilight. ( )

I read this one next because of two reasons--I wanted to figure out if I would like Alex Flinn's writing style enough to buy 'A Kiss in Time' and because hey Neil Patrick Harris is in the movie! I will overlook the fact that Vanessa Hudgens is in it, because Neil Patrick Harris is in it! Playing my favorite character too--go figure! And for the record I find it incredibly funny that Vanessa is older then the guy playing Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) by about two years.

Fairy tales redone tend to make me happy. I can think of very few remakes that I haven't liked and those very few are movies (such as the 'horror' movie of Snow White) so don't really count anyhow. The book opens up with our MC, Kyle, entering a chat room for those who have undergone magical transformations (or are seeking to). You can guess what each user is from (Little Mermaid, Frog Prince, Snow White and Rose Red), but I found it interesting to see from their take on what happened to them. Its kind of like a therapy session for them in a chatroom--Kyle hits on the Little Mermaid, but she rebuffs him easily.

What then follows is Kyle's recounting of his being cursed and how unfair the whole deal was. Each new 'session' then charts his progress as he adapts and learns from his mistakes. And he takes a little while to learn. If what the witch, Kendra, says he did was true to some his classmates over the years...he deserved far worse.

Will (the character NPH is playing in the movie due out next summer) was my favorite character with probably Kendra coming in second. I liked Lindy, but I think her common sense was totally misplaced.

The book is pretty faithful to the Beauty and Beast fairy tale, with obvious changes to account for modernizing it. The end left me a little dissatisfied, and I wasn't completely cool with who Kendra turned out to be, but all in all it was a quick, fun read. Its full of witty banter, fairy tale allusions and a fair amount of 'Beauty is within us' and 'Don't be fooled by outer appearances' sort of moralizing that is at least delivered with humor. ( )

Teens will LOL. They will also find their preoccupations with looks, status and pride explored thoroughly.

Flinn follows the fairy tale's original plot points closely, but falters in her depiction of the story's bad guys, over-the-top caricatures that simply ring false in her up-to-date setting.

Beastly has romance, true love, tragic circumstances, magic, action adventure, and hope.

A rare fairy-tale-inspired novel with equally strong appeal for boys and girls.
