    "I haven't read this book, but I can confirm that the title is about opposites. I don't understand why anyone would be interested in titles that are opposites, but I suppose it's just one of those things. Now that I've given it some thought, I'm inspired to buy this book, for no other reason than because the title involves opposites."

    "Of Mice and Men, Beauty and the Beast...these tales of opposites entertain us (and sometimes break our hearts) by the strong character contrasts they show. Of Beast and Beauty is a sci-fi re-telling of the Beauty and the Beast story. I bought it on the basis of the title and premise, and can't wait to dive in!"

    "I doubt it would be possible to obtain a full list of all books that have a title with opposite concepts in it, so I suppose this would be one of the better ones. The ideas contained within will definitely make you think and are worth considering as Nietzsche is a well-known but often misunderstood writer and thinker. I might have to caution against getting this particular book though as some people did mention having various "technical" issues with this printing, translation, PDF, etc."

    "A Great and Terrible Beauty (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy) is a book that is ok. It is a little exciting and interesting, but not great. The basic idea wasn't so bad, but the one dimensional characters and absolutely horrendous writing were too much. I had to literally MAKE myself finish this book."

    "From the title it sounded like she would be funnier in the book doing her normal thing. Ellen at a certain point just goes into a stream of conscious thoughts which in some cases can be very interesting but with this maybe the audio book version would be easier to let it run."
