    Kris Jenner executive produces and stars as matriarch on the hit reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!, now in its fifth smash season. Here, this ambitious businesswoman who has catapulted her family into the public consciousness reveals what it’s like living under the celebrity spotlight and touches on themes of love, loss, marriage, divorce, and motherhood.

    Story

    I prefer personal memoirs read by the author - thinking this was also read by its writer.

    HOWEVER - only the introduction is read by Kris Jenner - the rest of the book is by someone else - they are fine - but it's not at all the same or as "advertised".

    Please change the "Narrated by" to reflect the actual reader of this audiobook - it is NOT Kris Jenner, and I would not have purchased it under these circumstances. Kris has a flair and a way of speaking that I wanted to hear - it is unfortunate that she could not have read the whole book. Introduction just left me wanting more of that same pizzaz - that lacked in the rest of her story.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    I had not seen the Oscar winning movie, but knew the story, obviously - but the details and timeline in this book made the even of Lincoln's assassination so real. Great listen, I wanted to listen again, it was that good.

    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.

    Story

    Since it was the #1 bestseller, and in all the talk at work... I thought I would see what this book was about. I'm only half way through the first book, and it's not worth the Audible credit.

    Not only is the author a horrible writer... they use the same juvenile terms and phrases over and over (get a VOCABULARY) but to make it worse, the narration is distracting and really bad. She changes her voice to be "Christian Grey", and I don't need that augmentation to the story. I listen to it at double speed on my iPod just to get through it... but I have to stop, it's just not good.

    There must be better 'erotic' literature out there, this one is a waste of time.
