Publisher's Summary

Belle wants more out of life than the small provincial town of Villeneuve can offer. There she stands out from the crowd with her unique point of view, her strong-willed independence, and her love of books. She longs for travel and adventure, for a life as exciting as the stories she reads.

But when Belle's beloved father is taken prisoner by a beast in an enchanted castle, her path is forever changed. Risking her freedom and her future, she takes her father's place, secretly vowing to escape. But as she learns more about the Beast and his mysterious castle, Belle realizes that there may be more to his story - and her own - than she ever could have imagined.

Bleh

Just as bland as the movie. The film remake over explained everything to try to get rid of the "plot holes" from the 1990 classic. They also got rid of the soul and passion. This book takes that mistake to a new level. Didn't even make it half way.

Tale as old as time...

Storyline stays pretty close to the 2017 Beauty and the Beast movie. The narrator does a good job reading the story. One of my most favorite stories!

Matches The Flow Of The Movie

If you loved the movie you will love this reading. it's basically a written run down of the movie with a bit more detail. They do use both the 1991 2D animation and the 2017 love action adaptations to create this book. But mostly it relies on 2017.
