I think that the choice is just something they'd have to come to terms
with. Yeah, I know it sounds like some silly cliche, but sometimes people
have to do things best as they know. Beauty's choice was particularly
difficult. I think one thing I like abt the book is that, well, sometimes
stories of ordinary people struggling with their lives can be as
interesting as that of the stars. Yes, I'm disappointed that the beast
didn't turn into a prince, but I guess McKinley's exploring the idea of
what's considered a happy ending here. What IF the choice went the other
way is an interesting speculation, I must say.
