Reviews of Beauty (1991)
Review by sqbr (2003-06-30)
I have to say I hated this book, but a lot of other people have disagreed with me so don't let me stop you reading it! The writing/plot etc was fine, but the whole book was a lot of smug, exagerated didcatic swipes at a number of targets without any real point.
Blaming christianity for the end of magic while also presenting most magic creatures as pretty nasty etc made me end up disliking everybody (including the author), which I don't think was the point.
