    What disappointed you about Sweet Tooth?

    There is no real story, no excitement, just boring...
    I found it hard to finish the book and would not recommend it. Absolutely boring!

    On the sunlit Greek island of Skios, the Fred Toppler Foundation's annual lecture is to be given by Dr Norman Wilfred, the world-famous authority on the scientific organisation of science. He turns out to be young and charming - not at all the intimidating figure they had been expecting. The Foundation's guests are soon eating out of his hand. So is Nikki, the attractive organiser. Meanwhile, in a remote villa at the other end of the island, Nikki's old friend Georgie waits for the man she rashly agreed to go on holiday with.

    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind – until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out. Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more.

    Masha says: "Frustratingly bad read"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Its boring and very predictable. The sex scenes are very naive.


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

    No, I do not like her pronunciation and her voice for men is pathetic.


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

    Big disappointment because of all the hype. I found myself skipping to the next chapter all the time because it was so boring.
