I think this book is better suited to an audience who is just discovering fantasy as a genre. The protagonist is a 16 year old boy, so the audience for the book is likely of a similar age.
I believe the author could have done something... anything interesting. The entire things was trite and predictable. You could easily predict every single character action and reaction the whole way through. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop- and it never did.
Wow, that's a hard question. Chris did a lovely job bringing all of the characters to life. He helped redeem the story in my opinion. I quite enjoyed the Frog Prince though.
I did enjoy the actual 'sessions' when the protagonist had come together and was discussing life with some of the smaller characters. I think those interactions were about the only unique element that was added to the tale.
The author did a good job of taking you into this boy's life.
The pinnacle moment at the end of the story--can't give it away!
He became "the Beast". He sunk into the character.
No, no extreme reaction. It was fine, but nothing very special.
A beautiful written story of self discovery and love. Chris Patton's narration makes the pages come alive. You can feel all the characters emotions and anxieties, visualize the surroundings through the descriptions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Alex Flinn's Beastly is so good. I love the way Chris Patton narrates it. He changes his voice very nicely so its easy to picture everything he is telling you.

I bought this as one of their sale books for $4.95. Even at that price it was a waste of money. It started as a conversation in a chatroom. It was very difficult to listen to. And VERY weird. I hated it. A very bad beginning to a book. Plus the narrator was not the greatest.
