    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.

    I know this book is meant for adults. However, I shudder to think of some young adult women thinking this may be fun or interesting to try with WRONG CHOICE OF MAN!!
    I agree with other listeners about the narrator. She is NOT suited for this book. Editor should have changed some multiple uses of the same words over and over again. I may be sick if I hear "oh my", "hot" or " my sex" EVER again!!

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Mother of Pearl is populated by wonderfully rich and original characters. The paths of Even Grade, a black man who grew up an orphan, and Valuable Komer, a white girl who is the daughter of the town whore, cross through Joody Two Sun, a seer, who becomes Even's lover. Both Even and Valuable are seeking the family, love, and commitment they never had, and their search ultimately takes both of them to places they never dreamed they'd go.

    Overall

    This probably could have been a much better book if the narrator was better. I love listening to audio books, but this one was really difficult to get into and stay focused on. This is the only book - from a large library - that I had to be alone in a quiet room to try to follow. I also had a hard time knowing which character was speaking. I couldn't tell the boys for the girls! It certainly wouldn't be a book that I would recommend for a first time listener!

    This mesmerizing first novel tells the epic journey of Lin, an escaped convict who flees maximum security prison in Australia to disappear into the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The keys to unlock the mysteries that bind Lin are held by two people: his mentor Khader Khan, mafia godfather and criminal-philosopher; and the beautiful, elusive Karla, whose passions are driven by dangerous secrets.

    Overall

    I was afraid I couldn't listen to a book of this length and keep my attention, however, Shantaram has become my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK. Humphrey Bower has an amazing voice and brings all the characters alive and vibrant. I laughed, I cried, I loved. Before I listened to Shantaram I thought Pillars of the Earth was the best book ever (even though the movie was awful), but now I recommend Shantaram to all my reading and listening friends. All around AMAZING!! If there were 10 stars available - I would give it a 10!
