    Would you listen to My Beloved World again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to My Beloved World again in a heartbeat! Such a Humble lady, Brilliant, Focus, Determination, Ethics, Family, ANYONE can achieve what they WANT.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Beloved World?

    Sonia made a classmate return the bacon he stole for their sandwiches and never talked to him again. She did not want to be associated with a thief. She, at a young age, and I suspect even now, walks her talk.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Refocusing her mother to study even in her toughest, trying moment. She will help people she cares about to stay on focus/task.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her breakup with Kevin because he could not handle her being ahead of him - educational, job wise.

    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 love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    well written, choice of words, could "feel" the authors words.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Annastasia was my favorite character. She was young, spunky, vocalized her feels and point of view.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Half way thru the book, between all the erotic discriptive acts, what moved me was "why" was Christian like this. It had to be something that happened in his past. Immediately ordered the next two audio books in this series. Now on last third of Fifty Shades of Freed and enjoying the transformation of each character.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed hearing how each character evolves and lets go of their inhibitions which is holding them back on life. Thus, what an appropriate title for the last book . . . Fifty Shades FREED.
