The sixth week of AudiobookSYNC 2017 offers eAudiobooks for prom-goers, prom-avoiders, romantics, and cynics alike. Both take inspiration from the folktale of Beauty and the Beast. Considering the new Disney live-action version is in theaters now, these eAudiobook titles offer a unique perspective on the classic story.
Donna Jo Napoli’s Beast, set in Persia, is presented from the Beast’s point of view. This prince has been cursed and now lives trapped in the form of a lion. Sentient and sensitive, his emotional struggles are keenly felt.
Stacey Jay’s Of Beast and Beauty, is set in a world where humans and those they deem monstrous mutants both threaten and avoid contact with each other. The princess and the monster’s relationship moves from captive and keeper to familiarity and salvation for their own romance and that of both of their cultures.
Prom or no prom, this pair offers elegance, pageantry, and memories for a lifetime.
Available for a Limited Time
Remember — grab these titles before they are replaced by a new pairing on 6/8/2017! While the download time is limited, your listening time is not. Once you have downloaded the MP3 files, the eAudiobook is yours to keep.
