    It's been just over a year since Edmund Blithe died, and just over a month since his fiancee, Emily, stopped wearing her engagement ring. Emily has finally begun to move on - until Edmund mysteriously and inexplicably returns. Edmund is only just the beginning. Around the world, people's loved ones are returning from beyond, seeking only to reenter the lives they left behind.

    Story

    Whatever sort of magic Jason Mott weaves, he has completely captivated me in the 34 short minutes of this prequel. As one who is easily disappointed by this genre, I am actually looking forward to August 27 and the release of The Returned.

    The prequel promises much while not giving away anything - a difficult trick to pull off! During this brief introduction to Edmund and his "situation," which is apparently not limited just to him, the narrator immediately brings to life the author's portrayal of the characters' personalities.

    Both writer and performer have left me spellbound and anxious for the story to continue. Well done

    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 did you like about this audiobook?

    I cannot think of anyone who might truly enjoy this book. The writing is dumbed-down, the story uneven, and the narration poor.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Improve her writing skills.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Voice uneven. Sound like she's wearing braces.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Waste of time and money. I CANNOT believe they are making this schlock into a movie! Well, yes, I can...

    I am glad I only bought the first book. Now I just need to figure out how to delete this junk from My Library.
