    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 recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Just because everyone else is reading it doesn't mean you need to. It's definitely popular right now, but I don't think it was particularly well written.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    "Seriously?!"


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Frustrating. Annoying. Mispronounced.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. Because I read the book. ;)

    When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees. Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy.

    What did you like best about Fifty Shades Freed? What did you like least?

    It had been a while since I finished the Twilight series, and I needed some more fluff in my reading diet. It started off a bit shocking but by the end I was over all of the 'juicy details' and just wished the story line would cut to the chase.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Again, NOT a fan of Miss Battoe's reading. At all.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yeah

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook! It's a quick, silly, totally relatable tale that most of my friends would very much enjoy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    I very much enjoyed her "Top 10" (although not always 10) lists.


    Any additional comments?

    Do it.
