What did you love best about How Beauty Met the Beast?

Fresh ideas and take on a classic. I love that stereotypes are not stereotypical or not predictably so.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters are likeable and engaging. I could find myself hoping for friends like these. I want to live in the underlight!

What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms Plummer gives life to the book. Listening to the book allows me to sink into the story and live it.

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

I listened in one sitting and was online looking for the second book immediately.

Any additional comments?

The book starts with a very "adult" bang. Don't abandon hope it quickly moves into a true storyline.
