Publisher's Summary

"I heard a horrible screaming sound, like an animal being slaughtered ... then I realised it was me."

When Katie Piper was 24, her life was near perfect. Young and beautiful, she was well on her way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a model.

But then she met Daniel Lynch on Facebook and her world quickly turned into a nightmare....

After being held captive and brutally raped by her new boyfriend, Katie was subjected to a vicious acid attack. Within seconds, this bright and bubbly girl could feel her looks and the life she loved melting away. Beautiful is the moving true story of how one young woman had her mind, body and spirit cruelly snatched from her and how she inspired millions with her fight to get them back.

    Story
    "Inspiring"
    Would you listen to Beautiful again? Why?

    I would listen to Beautiful again as it was an inspiring audiobook. It detailed the life of Katie before and after the attack. Listening to her struggles and strength in dealing with them was inspiring and humbling.


    What other book might you compare Beautiful to, and why?

    I'm not sure what I would compare beautiful to as I haven't listened to anything similar. It is very unique. Though it does illustrate the importance society places on external beauty.


    What does Emilia Fox bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Emilia Fox as an actress was able to bring the characters in Katie's autobiography to life by changing accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a book I wanted to listen too all in one sitting. As a listener you want to know what happens next: how Katie dealt with one struggle after another with the attack and ultimately enduring multiple operations.


    Any additional comments?

    Katie's autobiography should be listened to by everyone, particularly women. It detailed an abusive relationship - flagging warning signs of this.It is also the story of a survivor, she went through every woman's worst nightmare and overcame it.
