    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    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.

    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The narrating was horrible.


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

    She could've taken out 75% of the same ol same ol sex scenes and still had a decent story. The narration made the book a difficult one and an unenjoyable one to listen to.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    Anyone else but Ms. Battoe.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could get my credit back. Simply a wasted credit.
