    For someone who is just starting out this is the place to start. I know some Spanish so it was not helpful for me to start with this lesson. I would recommend this to those wanting to learn Spanish though.

    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 be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    Yes, I enjoyed the story. Definitely interested in trying another E. L. James work.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm an avid reader, this is actually the first audiobook I listened to. I thought the story was good but I'm not sure how much I enjoyed the narration. Becca does a decent job but I found many parts of the book VERY annoying (not sure if that is because of the story or Becca). A friend of mine has downloaded it but hasn't gotten very far because she does not enjoy Becca's narration. That being said, I would suggest that you preview before purchasing and really listen when you do.

  • The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    This is the disturbing tale of the dual personality of Dr. Jekyll, a physician. A generous and philanthropic man, he is preoccupied with the problems of good and evil and with the possibility of separating them into distinct personalities. He develops a drug that transforms him into the demonic Mr. Hyde, in whose person he exhausts all the latent evil in his nature.

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    JP does a good job voicing the different characters in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the books up to this one and I'm a big fan of the show so I was hesitant to listen. That being said, I really enjoyed this production and thought it was worth listening to.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 59 mins)

    Story
    (670)

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    This is one of my favorite works by Oscar Wilde. I have seen the old and newer movies and read it. Listening to this dramatization was an awesome experience. The players were spot on! I could see what was happening as I was listening. Would suggest this to anyone!!

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Karen Downes says: "Colin whispers in my ear, and I melt"

    I thought this book was fantastic. The story was beautiful and sad. And Colin Firth's narration was spectacular.
