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.

The background music is so moving and the voice of the women telling the story helps make a movie in your head

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!

Reading the movie

The book is written as if you're reading the script for the movie. hardly anything changes at all. The voice can become quite monotone after a while. overall very well

Very enjoyable.

I loved the original animated movie, and seeing the new live action one I also loved it. If you loved both movies too then you'll absolutely enjoy reading this, as it is more detailed version to the story read to you instead of watching, and your let into the thoughts of Belle, Beast, Maurice, Gaston, and some of the other main characters. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this and I do hope you all will too.

To the performance, and the woman's voice is enjoyable and not overly dramatic, though when she tries doing a male characters voice it's hard to take the characters voice seriously as it sounds so feminist. I laughed a few times when gaston was supposed to sound loud and in a way in hatred, but ended up sounding like a deep girls voice faking anger lol.
