    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Beauty before Disney's Beast"

    The story of "Beauty and the Beast" has always been one of my favourites.The theme of the true nature of beauty is so strikingly illustrated in this story. Unfortunately Disney reinterpreted the story and changed it that this jewel was lost. It was a pleasant surprise see that Audible has made available the "original" story.

    I initially thought that Sara Barnett is a little girl reading the story. Her melodious unusual voice complemented the story nicely.

    If you like classic fairy tales you must own this story. It will transfer you to a magical realm away from the issues of this world until you find the beauty in your beasts.
