As a long-time (over a decade) Audible listener, I was intrigued when a friend chastised me when I told her that I knew nothing about the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy. Out of curiosity I downloaded and listened. I was sincerely shocked that this is a best seller, that women don’t find this insulting and offensive, that the insertion of soft porn into every 10 pages could make a sophomoric storyline into a best seller (ok, I guess that one is no big surprise). Maybe I’m just annoyed that I didn't think to write this and reap the profits? Who knew?? I obviously think way to much. I have listened to over a thousand books in my travels. Some fantastic, some awful; however, even the awful weren't in the same intellectually shallow category. They might have not been my cup of tea for whatever reason, but I could say I learned something. I guess I could say what I learned here is how far such a large portion of our society has slipped intellectually. Terrorists should be laughing hysterically! They should be doubled over saying "that's hot" and "oh my." They don’t have to plot to destroy our country. We have apparently dumbed down our educational system and expectations to the point of diminishing or possibly no return.
Makes no difference when there are lines continually repeated like "Oh my" and "that's so hot"
Anger, sadness, disappointment AND disgust.
I am not a prude. If you are going to write something erotic, do it well. This was CRAP.
I used to like to read Dean Koontz novels. Perhaps they are a better "read" then "listen" or perhaps I just evolved as a reader. This book was old "B" movie predictable.
Touching and wonderful. I laughed and cried. I will never look at my dog in the same way.
This book comes from the heart and touches your heart because it is real....full of real, raw emotions, about good stuff gone bad and the bad stuff that makes us complete.
Maybe it works for a Seinfeld episode or even a season, but 13 hour books about nothing don't work.
