Always in touch with my inner child. Crazy about alternate realities and science fiction. Oh , I am also pretty stoked by books where people get pregnant. Very loyal to good authors but always looking for another to add to my list
a single sitting book. The outlook from the point of view of the beast is wonderful.
I struggled to finish this book. It was a bit too cheesy for my taste. It is exactly like every other Beauty and the Beast retelling you have ever read or seen, and there was nothing original at all about it. The performance was pretty ok, just a few cheesy moments again that I thought were over the top.
Interesting interweaving with "chat room" fairy tale characters hosted by Mr. Anderson, but story of boy becoming beast could use some editing where he becomes overly introspective and doubtful that he will win the girl in time.
I rarely write reviews but I found this story awesome on so many levels. It struck a chord with the way it mirrored the trouble so many young people have! Hat's off to the author for his insight into the lives and problems of so many people!
It was a good book. The modern way of telling the story was well done and the reader was good at making all the characters believable. Overall it was a beautiful story
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Yes!! it was soooo cute...teenage angst and all!!!!!!!
I liked how Kyle/Adrian became the man he was supposed to be...it touched my heart to tears!!!
Oh he was soooo good...I would listen to him narrate anything....he gave a great performance..emotional, raw..and funny!!
I was so touched when he told Lindy she was not a prisoner...that she could go...even though he really wanted her to stay forever!!!!
I started this book thinking ok...maybe it will be a 3 star listen...it will be quick...and fell in love with it!! this was a terrific re-telling of an age old tale that will make you laugh, make you angry at times, and will make you cry...this is a very special story...I loved it very much!!! I will listen to it again...and now want to read more of Alex Finn's books!!! :)
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.
