    "My perfect life was a lie. Now I'd do anything to uncover the truth.... Not long ago, I had everything a girl could wish for: amazing friends, an adorable boyfriend, a loving family. But none of them know that I’m gone—that I’m dead. To solve my murder, my long-lost twin sister, Emma, has taken my place. She sleeps in my room, wears my clothes, and calls my parents Mom and Dad. And my killer is watching her every move."

    Overall

    I have quite literally fallen in love with Sara Shepard's books. I admit I was skeptical if this series would be as good as The Pretty Little Liar series, and after reading the first book in the series I still was unsure. However, this book (2nd in the series) has proven to me that this series is going to be not only very close to as good as the PLL series but just as mysterious as well. I could go on and on about what a great book/author/series this is, but if you've ever read a book by this author then you already know all that. If you haven't then start with the first book in this series or the PLL series. The best thing about the audio book itself is the person reading the book, One of the best narrator's I have ever heard.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    "WHY DID YOU HAVE TO REMASTER THESE AUDIOBOOKS?"

    What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The whole concept, everything about it EVEN the first narration of the book. Then they went and remastered it and ruined it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian of course... Hope they get someone right for the movie role. I could see Henry Cavill playing him or even Ian Somerholder. Someone with that general look is how i picture him.


    Did Becca Battoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The first time around was amazing. She sounded young and innocent and I could picture Alexis Dziena (the actress) playing her in a movie. I was so excited and was about to buy the second book when I saw they had been remastered. So, I listened to the sample. I don't think I can get into the second book as the narrarator sounds like a different person. An older person, maybe mid thirties and Ana is supposed to be 21 so this questions is hard to answer because I thought the narrarator did pretty great the first time around, but the remastered version is one of the WORST audio books ever.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If I were making a movie the tagline would be "How far would you be willing to go!"
    I'd cast
    Alexis Dziena or Emma Roberts as Ana
    Henry Cavill as Christian (someone tall, dark haired, and gorgeous..Kind of a pretty boy but in a dangerous way..I picture someone that favors Matt Bomer when I read the books, but him coming out may hurt him from getting the role.)
    Katie Cassidy as Kate ( I keep picturing Kate Hudson when I read the books but I think she might be too old for the role).


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE fix the audio books back to the sound of the original narration so I can buy them. I prefer her young sounding. Otherwise NO WAY...Just about every comment on the second book that I looked at was the same, fix them back....

    Overall

    I started watching the television series and then found out there were books, I knew I had to read them. I was a little worried because I'm in my early twenties and this is a YA series, but I didn't feel like it was dumbed down or watered down. I was hooked after the first book, couldn't even wait for my next credit, I ended up buying all of the audio books. I highly recommend this series!
