    In the wickedly bittersweet and hilarious You Must Go and Win, the Ukrainian-born musician Alina Simone traces her bizarre journey through the indie rock world, from disastrous Craigslist auditions with sketchy producers to catching fleas in a Williamsburg sublet. But Simone offers more than down-and-out tales of her time as a struggling musician: she has a rapier wit, slashing and burning her way through the absurdities of life, while offering surprising and poignant insights.

    This is a very funny book. Worth listening! I laughed a lot, and could sympathize with Alina.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Story

    This is one of those books that pulls you into a whole new world, where you begin to believe that it's all very real while you're in the midst of it. Captivating would be a good word. Anyone who is a history buff along with being a vampire/witch genre fan will get a real kick out of this. A must read! This is intelligently written but also fun all the way.

    When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees. Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    The story line is unbearably predictable. I rolled my eyes about 50 times (ha ha) before finally turning it off about 3/4 of the way through, never to listen again. I like the first two books OK, but not this one. I got really tired of the characters, too, what with Ana's lack of a backbone or self identity and Christian's appalling lack of anger management or respect for Ana. I just got weary of listening to their codependency. I could put up with their character flaws when there was a more interesting overall story happening, but the story line in Freed is appallingly dull.


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

    Maybe.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    Her voice for Christian is one dimensional and sounds silly. It would be better if she put more flavor into his voice and less of an attempt to sound like a man (fake lowered voice). So, yes, I'd listen to her again, but I urge her management to rethink the way her recordings are mastered.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Christian. He has no redeeming features other than his money. Imagine him without money, and he no longer seems appealing, despite his sexual skills. Without money, he wouldn't be able to cover up his control freakishness in stylish ways like he does. Imagine Ana actually growing up into a self-assured woman who wouldn't allow herself to be flattened by whatever whims this man has.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. So far, it doesn't seem to work. I've listened to it every day for a week and a half with no lucid dreams. I'll keep trying for another week or two just in case.


    Any additional comments?

    The end is awful. See, this book is very nice to listen to, very soothing with birds, water, bells, rain, etc. all mixed together. Then, at the end, it just abruptly stops, with no fade out or anything!
