Description-
  • A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright -- a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

    You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever -- ruined -- unless I can break the spell.

    Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she urn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In this contemporary take on Perrault's "Beauty and the Beast," Chris Patton's narration ably renders 16-year-old Kyle Kingsbury, a guy with looks, money, and peer adulation whose world is irrevocably altered when a witch turns him into a beast. Most characters are defined with pacing and inflection, among them Kyle's distant and uncaring father and his compassionate--and blind--tutor. Other characters are more distinctly voiced, such as the hilarious "transformed" frog and bear Kyle meets in an online chat room and the wise, loving housekeeper who looks after him. While some of Patton's accents are not entirely believable, his ability to portray Kyle's cruelty, anguish, and eventual redemption will keep listeners captivated. S.G.
