Count me as another one who likes it.

I seem to be weird in that I love _Beauty_ *and* _Rose Daughter_ (though I 
must admit that it's been a while since I've read either). Probably _Beauty_ 
has a greater emotional resonance for me, though, because I read it first, 
and it made a stronger impression, even though I totally agree that _Rose 
Daughter_ is a much more complex, mature novel.
