    "The Open Boat" is considered Stephen Crane's finest work and one of the great short stories of all time. The story begins with four men in an open boat, subject to the vagaries of the sea after their ship went down. The Captain, though injured, retains control over the boat and its occupants by force of habit and uncanny skills. In this trial, he proves his worth, putting his men first, guiding them at every step of the way.

    Would you try another book from Stephen Crane and/or Deaver Brown?

    yes


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen Crane? Why or why not?

    I dont think the book was bad, just the narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Deaver Brown?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I read the reviews where others gave the book a low rating, but I figured, 1 hour and less than 3 bucks...how bad could it be. Well....I could barely understand what Mr. Brown was saying and the narration didn't flow. The bad narrating really took away from the book. I really don't recommend this version.

    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.

    What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    The book is just bad. I read the original fan fiction...which is a little better. The story fell flat when it's original characters were removed.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get someone who sounds like an adult to re-record the book. Nobody wants to listen to a valley girl. She made Christian sound more like a dumb immature jock than a multimillionaire.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
