    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.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Nope. Couldn't finish this one....and I was using it as a sleep aid.


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe take a writing class?


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different reader....different material.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Hmmmm....maybe the main characters "subconscious" and "inner goddess."


    Any additional comments?

    Have you ever wondered what goes on inside the head of an idiot? Then you may find this book interesting.

    One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure....

    Bob says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "Well done"
    Overall

    Like the story, like the narration. I didn't miss Davenport as much as I thought I would - Virgil is becoming more interesting!

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    "Well written, well narrated"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this. The characters were well developed and the dialogue true. Paced well, story line believable, entertaining. Loved the narrator. Overall, a good buy!

    Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

    Erin says: "Entertaining & Edgy"
    "Time for some changes"
    Overall

    I think it's time for Davenport to get some new outside interest to enrich these stories. Life is settling in a bit too predictably for these colorful characters. I appreciate that the "yeh yeh" comments were trimmed down. Solid story but if it were the first "prey" story I had read, I would have not looked for anymore in the series.

    Her name is Elise Freeman, and her chilling cry for help to whoever may be listening comes too late to save her. On a DVD found near her lifeless body, the emotionally and physically battered woman chronicles a year-and-a-half-long ordeal of monstrous abuse at the hands of three sadistic tormentors. But even more shocking than the lurid details is the revelation that the offenders, like their victim, are teachers at one of L.A.s most prestigious prep schools.

    Jonna says: "Really disappointed"
    "Same old..."
    Overall

    Nothing new here. And the suspects "lick their lips" and "blink" all the time, which is just annoying.

    Forensic pathologist Janis Amatuzio first began recording the stories told to her by patients, police officers, and other doctors because she felt that no one spoke for the dead. She believed the real experience of death, namely the spiritual and otherworldly experiences of those near death and their loved ones, was ignored by the medical professionals, who thought of death as simply the cessation of breath. She knew there was more.

    Londa says: "Forever Ours"
    "Ok....."
    Overall

    Nice stories but I wish she had collected quite a bit more personal testimony before she wrote a book.

    Fegan has been a "hard man" - an IRA killer in Northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by 12 ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he's going to have to kill the men who gave him orders. As he's working his way down the list, he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too.

    David P. McGivern says: "What an unexpected good read!"
    "Brutal"
    Overall

    Well crafted - but....so descriptively violent.

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    Tony B. says: "Another winner for Davenport fans"
    "New character"
    Overall

    Davenports daughter Letty and her voice add some new life into the series. I "binged" and listened to the entire book in less than two days.
