Publisher's Summary

What if Belle's mother cursed the Beast? As Old as Time is the third book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways.

When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind - memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about As Old as Time?

    Growing up knowing the story, I was excited about this story and exploring what was different. The book was just 'eh' for me, it was not what I expected. I felt like there needed to be more, leaving things almost unfinished for me. Especially felt like there were many plot holes and unnecessary need to drag on some scenes.


    Has As Old as Time turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What aspect of James Patrick Cronin’s performance would you have changed?

    I would not change a thing, he did a wonderful job. Was one reason why I actually kept listening to the book. He caught my attention when I felt the book kept dragging and engaged very well in playing out many scenes throughout the book.

    "disapointed"
    What would have made As Old as Time better?

    I was so excited to read this. I love beauty and the beast it is one of my favorite stories. I started listening and it did not hold my interest.

    "It keeps your attention."

    I like the story, however, I don't like how weak at times the beast was potray in the story. The narrator's different voices at times would sound the same for different characters. I mean other then that it's a good twist!

    "I want a sequel!"

    Was a little hard to get into it in the beginning, but once it really started i couldnt stop listening. I sort of want a sequel! Great job differentiating the different character voices as well!

    "Terrible Writing"

    I do not like how the author writes these. The narrator was good but the writing was terrible! For all of them so far I couldn't finish them.

    "Plot Twist"

    Having a backstory for Belles parents was grand. I'd have enjoyed a bit more of their plot line as a whole to be honest. Without spoiling the ending, I enjoyed the concept behind the changes, however, there was just a looming struggle for tone. Details felt modern and off at times. I loved the depth of the beast though. I felt for him. Belle seemed less sweet and a bit too analytical. Overall it was a fun take on an old tale.

    "Amazing story view"

    This is an amazing book. Gives you an entirely different point of view in things and changes the whole story completely. I would highly recommend to read it if you enjoy different story views of Disney stories. I can't wait to read the first 2!!!
