This book is definitely not suitable for a child. There is nudity, suggested rape, violence and strong language. Also good to know if certain themes are triggering or upsetting for the reader. However, these all contribute to the overall story about perceptions of beauty, greed, compassion and human nature presented in satirical extremes.
The color palettes are very simplistic and do great to invoke mood and setting. The art style is understated in a way that really helps embrace the theme.
spoiler ahead*** However, the ending is a bit disappointed since we readers see Beauty as someone who wrecked everything on her way (not just by her cursed beauty, but also with her stupidity and inconsideration along with her over-proud on appearance), she still managed to harm people who used to be kindes to her (one of the rare woman who used to be kind to her - queen of the North, got killed indirectly by Beauty). And finally she just seemed to not suffered from any karma but just thrived and be the queen of happy ending. The reader was in a emotion roller coaster for the main character, first we pity her, then we're happy for her, then indifferent since she just seemed to be merely a pawn in a big game of the fairies, then feel angry, then feel bad again, and finally, was not convinced with the ending. I feel the writers want to empower feminine power but the main character is just not enough a good example. Hence I love everything, except the ending.
I'll still give the book 5 stars because it was such a good read :)
While it is a very uncomfortable book to experience, by the end I had never felt more comfortable or grateful to be in my own skin.
The way the fairies are drawn is absolutely eerie and I love it.
