Hi there. The last reviewer, Harver, gave this book one star because it was too mature for his/her son. I don't see how this is a reason to slate a book. Beast is a Young Adult novel and the protagonist is 17 years old. Rate it on the writing not the fact that someone too young for it managed to get their hands on it. I guarantee they hear worse in the playground anyway.
Beast has an intense stream of conciousness feel and Stephen is a very likeable narrator despite law-breaking tendencies. I enjoyed it very much.
