    The original version. So intricate and WEIRD compared to the didactic and kind of blah de Beaumont version. Lots of strange animal motifs (totem-like, really), and some interesting--if not self-reflective--explorations of social class. A must-read for fairy tale enthusiasts.

    This is a super sweet, easy short story to read. Totally unexpected because of my obsession with the Disney version, but it's my understanding they didn't use this version in their concept planning. Anyway, I enjoyed it.

    I'm unsure if the version featured in this page is the one I read. The version was written by Madame de Villeneuve but it had 108 pages. In any case, I'll just leave this review here. I find the original version of Beauty and the Beast much better than the contorted version of Disney. The Beast is actually kind and intelligent and likeable but is cursed into his hideous shape by his virtual foster mother with pseudo-incestuous tendencies. He is forced to act dull-witted so as not to charm a woman I'm unsure if the version featured in this page is the one I read. The version was written by Madame de Villeneuve but it had 108 pages. In any case, I'll just leave this review here. I find the original version of Beauty and the Beast much better than the contorted version of Disney. The Beast is actually kind and intelligent and likeable but is cursed into his hideous shape by his virtual foster mother with pseudo-incestuous tendencies. He is forced to act dull-witted so as not to charm a woman with his looks or wit. There is no imprisonment of the father in this version. The father is a merchant instead of a hazardous inventor. The father, indeed, does get lost but the Beast offers him a place to spend the night and food, and in the morning when he tries to pick up a rose in the garden does the Beast "get angry" and strike up a deal with him to bring his daughter. The caveat is that the father must not mince his words in describing how hideous and vile the Beast is and the girl must still come willingly. All of it is part of the curse and the plot to undo the curse, not just the Beast acting like an aggressive jerk. The Beast is allowed to appear in the Beauty's dreams as he is in reality but isn't allowed to tell her it is him she dreams of and as such there is a bit of a "love triangle" between the Prince in her dreams, the Beast and Beauty. I suppose there may be a lesson there. It is, shall I say, very French in how it depicts the romance between the Beast and Beauty. It is a bit similar to Erec and Enide by Chrétien de Troyes in that everything else in their life seems to fall wayside in their love for each other. The plot of the original is also set off by a woman (the fairy foster mother of the Prince) and is resolved by the machinations of a woman. The Prince's mother is a queen locked away in a war but that happens in the background. So if women doing things is your cup of tea you may or may not like this. Also, the Prince and Beauty turn out to be cousins so if that isn't your thing you may want to give this one a pass. This review was quite long but I hope it is helpful to someone!

    Although this is a very short "book" (I would consider it more like a pamphlet), it was still wonderful. However, after finding out that this is a condensed version of the original story, I'm now on a quest to find the original.

    قد تقع الجميلة فى حب الوحش لكن ابدا لايحدث العكس على كل حال هى واحدة من القصص التى لا يسأم منها المرء ان كان كبيرا او صغيرا

    It was a joy to rediscover this story after having been for years told the story by Disney. The gist is there but this original story is powerful in its own way. A classic for years to come.

    I like some of the elements in the book...beauty is very brave and the beast is kinder and more polite than in the film. If read critically, a lot of stereotypes can be found in this book. I read this for research purposes only, but I don't think it is a suitable book to be read to children as a fairytale (might be overprotective of me but still). In this manner, the film was definitely far better than the book since it removed most of the gender roles in the book.

    Completely different than the Disney versions! Glad I read the very brief original story.

    I am currently reading all the children’s books that I have missed over the years. This original tale was just as brilliant as the Disney adaptation.

    I came to read this as the Disney film is one of my favourites, but the book has a lot of differences. There is a lot more information about both Beauty and the Beast's backstory: how he came to be cursed, what happened to Beauty's mother as well as in interesting subplot about warring Fairies. Unfortunately this is all given in one colossal info dump after the main story (the Beast turns back into the Prince less than half way through the novel), and I will admit, I fell asleep while reading it.

Unfortunately this is all given in one colossal info dump after the main story (the Beast turns back into the Prince less than half way through the novel), and I will admit, I fell asleep while reading it. interesting, but it did take a loooooong time to get there. It also suffered because everyone was either just called The Prince, or The Fairy or The Queen despite the fact there were half a dozen Fairies and two Queens. It was somewhat confusing. It's also worth noting that this was written in the 18th century, I think, and was intended to prepare young women who were about to head off on an arranged marriage. An assurance that despite what it might look like, I'm sure your husband isn't a horrible brute that will make your life miserable in exchange for your father getting some decent arable land. It is not the most feminist forward book there is. Beauty's virtues are all based on how beautiful, dutiful and docile she is rather than being, you know, an interesting person in her own right. There's also a rather confused message about rank in there. SPOILER ALERT but there's a whole scene after the transformation where the Prince's mother says Beauty can't marry her son, everyone says she is virtuous enough that it doesn't matter, and then in turns out she's actually a Princess. So... not sure what that was trying to achieve there. In short, I'm glad I read the original, but I'll stick to the modern retellings I think.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I love Beauty and the Beast. I love original Fairy Tales. So why would I rate this one only three stars. Villeneuve starts out great, Beauty and her family are wonderful caricatures. The plot moves nicely. The dreams have always confused me but they are alright. Beauty frees Beast, there are even fireworks. Then things go crazy, really crazy. Beauty is the daughter of a fairy and a human king...drama =Beauty being hidden away...there is a lot of drama that leads to the Beast being cursed I love Beauty and the Beast.

The only worthwhile part is the Beasts mother, a Queen, who kicks a**. She's more warrior than Queen and avenges her husband's murder and protects her kingdom from invaders. The good fairy is...good but more of a plot devise. This extended version is only good for explaining why Beauty was the only one to be "kidnapped". Otherwise the second half of this story is just drama, drama, and more unnecessary drama.

    Just finished this classic romance and it very much holds up. An amazing story of a young brave woman who takes on the task of saving her father from a hideous Beast when her siblings blame her for their father's fate. Reasons I Recommend: 1) Beauty is a brave young woman who takes to her fate with optimism and refusing to be afraid of what is in store for her 2) The dreams she had of the handsome man who loves her adds a touch of romance and sadness to the story - is the man real or entirely in he Just finished this classic romance and it very much holds up.

    “She bade us remember that it was cowardice to succumb to the greatest misfortunes, and that with time and courage there was no evil that could not be remedied.” I picked this one up with no Disney expectations in mind. I was simply looking for the real telling of Beauty and the Beast. It was fun to read since Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite fairy tales (thanks to Disney) and thankfully it was not tragic. Look forward to reading the rest of the original fairy tales.

    I needed something to lift my spirits back from reading something without any happy moments in it, a terrible read so I picked this up, the original. I think Beauty and the Beast is my favorite story of all time even though it wasn't while growing up because I didn't own the movie. It certainly is now. I have read quite a few retellings this year and I'm nowhere near done with the retellings.

What a girl still joking as she arrived at the castle "The Beast must be very hungry, if he makes all this rejoicing over the arrival of his prey." And how she hid her terror, lovely. And the Beast is quite civil as well. Kinda disappointed by the story.... I thought the original the beast invited Belle to sleep but not marry... somehow censored in translation?

    Very nice I really enjoyed this original version of Beauty and the Beast. I missed the rose with its falling petals but I guess that was added in a retelling. This wasn't so different from other versions and not as dark as I expected from the synopsis. A great little read for lunch time.

    Listened to on Audio I was ok nothing bad but nothing overly great a bit preachy about how wonderful, beautiful, kind and smart Beauty was. I also really shoved how horrid her sister but it was just a rather typical fairytale

    This is a timeless classic for children to read. Any age of students would enjoy it and could learn something new each time they read it. I would read this to my students to have them learn about what kind of person they should be.

    Decided to read this magical little book before going to the cinema and seeing the movie. It must be well over 15 years since I last saw/read this story but it still possesses the trance-like qualities that fairy tales have over minds.

    This is the original version of "Beauty and the Beast." At 16 pages it is really short. Despite the length, I was impressed with the story. It was beautifully written and I'm glad that I read it.
