Publisher's Summary

La Belle et la Bête est un conte très ancien, qui a été rendu populaire par Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont en 1757. Un marchand ruiné fait une halte dans un château isolé, ignorant qu'il s'agit de la demeure de la Bête. La Bête consent à laisser repartir le marchand, à condition que l'une de ses filles le rejoigne pour mourir à sa place...
"Ne me raisonnez pas ; partez, et si vos filles refusent de mourir pour vous, jurez que vous reviendrez dans trois mois."

Le bon homme n'avait pas dessein de sacrifier une de ses filles à ce vilain monstre ; mais il pensa : au moins, j'aurai le plaisir de les embrasser encore une fois. Il jura donc de revenir, et la Bête lui dit qu'il pouvait partir quand il voudrait.

A rare and moving telling of the original tale

Alain Couchot is a master storyteller who creates utterly believable characters. This is a masterclass in audio work. Wonderful for intermediate or advanced students of French as well as native speakers. Should be on the French learning pages...a bilingual version would sell like hotcakes!

Speaks too quickly

This book is not for beginners or intermediate French learners. The man speaks way to quickly so couldn't understand many words. But his delivery not too great. Over dramatic for me
