Beauty and the Beast captured my attention because it is still my all time favorite story - and this book delivered in every way. James does a great job of moving the plot along while developing the characters in such a way that you fall in love! There are so many ho-hum audio books out there that I want to express my humble opinion that this one is definitely worth it - IF you are a true believer in Beauty and the Beast.
I have been reading Cathering Coulter's books for many years and fell in love with her characters and story plots - but as hard as I tried, this one never ever engaged at all on any level. I really encourage you to read her early historical romances - but do not waste a credit or your time on this one. I saw the bad review and decided to give it a chance because of her past books - I am sorry that I did.
I downloaded this book based on the reviews comparing this to a Diana Gabaldon book - it is actually a kinder, gentler version of her books. Kearsley does a good job of making history come alive with all the human elements- but if you do not enjoy history, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you do enjoy history and a good story, enjoy.
