THE BEAST'S HEART A Novel of Beauty and the Beast

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jim Dale

Fantasy • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jim Dale gives a captivating narration of this alluring adaptation of the classic tale "Beauty and the Beast," told from the point of view of the Beast. Dale's portrayal of a beastly man who is trying to hold onto his humanity is powerful and moving. Dale's heartrending tone trembles with the anguish of the Beast's loneliness. Deftly controlled modulations convey his bittersweet moments of joy, which are at once surprising, satisfying, and sad as the prospect of remaining in a beast's form looms. With evocative high tones, Dale depicts the beautiful Isabeau, effectively conveying her inner conflict as her tenderness for the Beast grows. An enchanting performance of a magical story. M.F.
