Narrator Ann Marie Gideon shines in this "Sleeping Beauty" remix, which explains how Princess Aurora falls victim to a sleeping spell that leaves her sequestered in a tower of thorns. Of course, in this version of the tale, the villain who puts a curse on the princess also happens to be her true love. Gideon brings emotional depth to Alice, the villain, coaxing listeners to sympathize with her and question whether she really deserves that title. Gideon provides a unique persona for each of the seven leading women in the story, allowing listeners to follow along with ease. This is required summer reading for LGBTQ lit fans.
