    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.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    I'm not sure. That would depend on if the writing improved.


    Has Fifty Shades of Grey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


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

    I didn't care for the performance all that much. There's always hope for improvement though.


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

    Was a little disappointed especially since there was so much hype about what a great book it is.


    Any additional comments?

    Not really.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)

    Story
    (16145)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "This one would make a great movie."

    If you could sum up 11-22-63 in three words, what would they be?

    Out freakin standing!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    The return to 2011

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What would you do if you had the power to change the past?


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to see this as a movie. It would have to be a mini series though so that every detail could be covered.
    This was one of the best stories King has done. And I have read King since the 70's.
