Gaston's Tale by Celeste K. Ramirez
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Thank you so much to Olympia Publishing for the review copy! ( I really hate doing this, but I promise honest reviews, below is my review)
Blurb: A different and slightly
modern approach to an already well documented fairy tale, Celeste
Ramirez follows her fascination with this genre and yet still provides
the necessary ingredients to retain the expected magical mystery aura.
our heroine, and her brother, Gaston, enter into the world of the Beast
with an added sprinkling of the arch rival, LeFou. With castles in the
air and magical inventions the plot unfolds. As Celeste Ramirez reminds
the reader, this is not the sweetest tale and there is no happy
ending... just two sides to every story.
This one really disappointed me. I was so hoping to enjoy it...but I really didn't. I couldn't stand Christine, and though its called Gaston's Tale, its really more about her.
It was an interesting take, and held potential, but impress me. I hate giving low reviews, but this one left so much to be desired.
If you enjoy this I would love to hear your thoughts!
I read all the time, so perhaps I'm just used to books being a certain way, who knows? :)
Nevertheless, I loved the cover, and did enjoy a different take on my all time favorite Disney Princess story!
