My review - 10 out of 10

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.

I absolutely adored this book...  I liked the different style of 'chat room exerpts' it had in it which featered a mermaid and a frog and another creature, whch I thought was really funny...  This book really swept me away iin a way that I was not expecting.... I am really looking forward to the movie which comes out soon and hope that the story is similar to the book....
