Fans of Beauty and the Beast will recognize the characters and the setting of this novel. The author has added two new dimensions to the story, one of the journey of Belle into the hidden world of the book, the other into the enchantment of the Beast's castle. Recommended.
This new obsession launched a frantic search of books related to Belle and the Beast. Thanks to my bookish friends having an equal obsession...I came across quite a few titles. Marissa found Lost in a Book at her local bookstore....I got on Amazon and ordered it that night I think. However, I had to force myself to wait to read it because of prior commitments.
Lost in a Book is an original story set during the time Belle is a prisoner of the Beast. He gives her the library (My hubby built me a reading nook...that's pretty close to a library...) in the beginning of the book, and the rest of the story is all about the adventures (or misadventures) she has in the magical book, Nevermore, that she discovers while cleaning up the library.
One of the themes of this story explains really well that getting lost in a book is good. An escape can be needed on occasion. However, don't take for granted the reality you have been given. Even if life is hard, and your path is heading in a direction that you weren't expecting...It is important to see the beauty in the life around you. Because even if it may be hard, it is REAL.
I purchased a print copy of Lost in a Book from Amazon. I was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
I loved it. All the principle players were represented in the book with an added element of a magical book that literally is a doorway into another world - a world that appears beautiful and amazing but my in fact be an elaborate illusion designed to destroy not only Belle but curse her new friends and the Beast to stay in their enchanted forms forever.
The ending was not quite as strong in parts than I would have liked as the two protagonists who had been staging the whole alternative world - Death and Love could have had a better resolution but it was still an interesting scenario and some of the dialogue between the sisters was indeed quote worthy.
All in all a delightful story which added without undoing the story we all know and love.
