The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
February 2013
9 hours 9 minutes
From bestselling author Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquleaure. In the traditional folktale of 'Sleeping Beauty,' the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince reawakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him…as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience.

Ending was horrible the writer did nothing to keep me interested. It was the same thing over and over! Ugh! I wanted them to get revenge! If revenge is being sent to the townspeople.... lame!

This book was my introduction to erotica…. Way before 50 shades was beauty book from Anne Rice , it takes you to the world of sleep beauty with a erotic twist in a world where princess and prince are claimed in many ways and punished in many different ways ways. This book explores sexual fantasies from every possible Angle this is not a boy meets girl boy loves girl and lives happily ever after. This full on bdsm and more enjoy as it’s my personal favorite had-read-and listened too many times never fails.

If you want erotica, don't buy this book. If you're into sadism, violence, pain and degradation, this might be for you. After taking a few pages to establish the premise, there is literally violence on every page thereafter. The dialogue is nonsensical and extremely repetitious. There is no plot to speak of. The actual sex scenes are few and far between and most of them feature violence. Above all, the book is boring.
