    A Beautiful Story

    The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle is about how a unicorn, who has lived alone in the woods for years, learns that she is the last unicorn on Earth. However, from page 1, it is stated that ¿Unicorns are immortal. It is their nature to live in one place,¿ so she knows that she cannot really be the last. Determined to find the rest of her kind, the unicorn sets out to free them from whatever has them all captive. Along the way she meets an inexperienced magician name Schemdrick and a woman called Molly, who join her in her quest. Their journey ultimately leads them to a forsaken land where they must fool an evil king and defeat a demon known as the Red Bull to find the unicorns. Overall, I found this book enjoyable and I believe it is one of the best fantasy books I have ever read. In this novel, many issues were mentioned. Perhaps one of the biggest is the strength of love, and how strong that really is. As you read, a lot of love interests develop, and some of the turn out good, others not so much. I, for the most part, agree with the author on all of this stuff. However, there was one thing on the issue of loyalty that I disagree with I think that if the Prince wanted to travel with Molly and Schmendrick he should¿ve been able to, instead of rebuilding the town. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. The Last Unicorn has a plot that is in every way unique and entertaining. I was able to relate to most of the characters, and I found all of them memorable. Even if you¿re not a big fantasy reader, like me, you will probably still like The Last Unicorn. This novel was very well-written, and is rightly called a fantasy classic.

    ¿The Last Unicorn¿ is a true classic of its time. The imaginatio

    “The Last Unicorn” is a true classic of its time. The imagination and riddles surrounding the unicorns and Red Bull are wonderfully panned out. The characters are much different than the cartoon (something I saw back when I was a kid and adored). In the book, Molly wasn’t quite so harsh or haggard, the unicorn’s actions are more understandable and Schmendrick isn’t quite the dweeb. The dialogue, however, can get a little carried away with itself and go nowhere for several pages.

    The book is very much like the cartoon as you can imagine, but it was good to get to know the story through my imagination rather than the television screen.

    This book is pretty good.

    I was so excited when this book was finally in my hands. I thought it was going to be better than it was. I don't know, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. But, it was still pretty good.

    This book was good!

    Ok, the first thing I wanna say about this book is that is was VERY well written! I think it is the best book that describes a real unicorn. I mean, just how Beagle has the most beautiful, decriptive words for the unicorn really gave me a new look at how unicorns really are (in the fantasy world). And as for the book, I thought it was very good! Although there was one part that was incredibly boring and confusing for me, thats the reason why I gave it 4 stars. And that one part, I think, had no reason to be in the book, really. But the rest of the book kept me hooked because of its well thought out characters and plot. I will definetly remember this book for a long time. :)

    A Wonderfully Put Together Piece Of Literature

    The Last Unicorn displays the way of life in a beautiful piece of writing. It shows hardships and difficulties with picturesque disis criptions and wonderful charaters.Yet, Peter S. Beagle also shows the good things in life and shows how to hang onto them. This book is the perfect example of what we go through day by day but makes it interesting.

    I found the book very intrigueing. The book was also read by my mother who is 40. She normally would read smut books. She loved it!The magic and the loneliness I found in the book was almost overwhelming. I think that this book is not JUST for kids but is also for anyone who thinks they would like to read it. Especially if my MOM read it! I also thought that the imagination put into this book was unrealistic,that is how good it was.
