    Story
    (694)

    Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage, and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    What did you like best about The Hobbit (Dramatized)? What did you like least?

    I love the story. I have read and listened to and watched other versions and I never seem to get tired of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This version was simply lacking. I didn't care for the voices and general presentation. I much prefer the unabridged reading over this dramatization version.


    Would you be willing to try another one of An Ensemble Cast’s performances?

    Yes


    Could you see The Hobbit (Dramatized) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    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
    What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    Cut out all the dreadful email headers. It is pointless. We know the emails are beween the two characters. The from and subject woild have been fine. The to and date stamo got annoying fast! It just got to be too much.


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

    Probably not. With the low quality of this book I can't see reading another.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, the story was weak and unrealistic. Not a good story and not good porn either. Not something I would recommend to anyone. I can't see this becoming a good movie.

    Story
    (2419)

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Devin says: "Great Epic Scifi"
    "Great story!"
    Overall

    The story is deep and rich and has great characters. The only things that I found to be an issue is the number of story lines make it a little to follow at times and the ending just unexpectedly cuts off in preparation for the next book.
