    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?

    H- No


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    Terrible writing, cringe inspiring dialogue, boring characters, Christian Grey is annoying, Ana has no brain cells.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    Doesn't matter who reads it, the book is cheesy as heck.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    all the sex scenes, Christian needs to STFU during sex, all the dialogue, every "OH MY" and "HOLY CRAP" phrase, every mention of Ana's Inner Goddess, and Subconscious.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know it was fan fiction, it is written by a total amateur. I want my credit back.

    In Before You Quit Your Job Robert shares his successes, but more importantly, he shares his failures and the lessons he has learned from them. This audiobook will give you a jump-start to becoming a successful entrepreneur. Robert Kiyosaki has been an entrepreneur since he was 9 years old. You may be familiar with some of his million-dollar products.

    What disappointed you about Rich Dad's Before You Quit Your Job?

    Too long, too much talk about the Board Game


    What was most disappointing about Robert T. Kiyosaki’s story?

    Too much bagging on his poor dad


    What didn’t you like about Tim Wheeler’s performance?

    A bit robotic


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like what he has to say in general but hoping the book had more to offer than what I have heard before.

    Ever since she discovered that she's pregnant, Elena Michaels has been on edge. After all, she's never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who's given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough---only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London's underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers, unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.

    Samantha says: "Great story..bad narrator"
    "Broken Series"
    Overall

    I miss the wolfpack. I miss the action. I miss the change and the hunt. Yet another disappointing book in the story of the wolves. What a sad turn of such wonderful characters from the first novel, "Bitten". It all began with the introduction of too many Supernaturals in "Stolen". There is even less wolf action in this book, the story takes you on a wild goose chase but with no real satisfying results, a lot of boring dialogue and yet more boring supernatural characters I do not care about. I was hoping the wolves would be running around in Victorian England, but alas no, they are mostly in Toronto. In addition, the main characters are no longer real, just more one liners and more sarcasm. I miss the wolf behaviors and the feeling the first book gave you, of wildness, nature and love, bonding and gore! The narrator doesn't help as all the voices sound the same and Elena sounds like a younger Bea Arthur from the 50's. I suppose I will read Frozen to see what happens to Elena and Clay, but I won't have high expectations.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Real apocalypse will happen before this story ends"
    Overall

    I like many reviewers found the first part of the book very enthralling. I invested in the original characters and wanted more. BUT, I have started part 2 and find myself falling asleep during the reading....repeatedly! I cannot seem to get very interested in the new characters at all and it is so hard to follow who is who and starting to ask myself, do I even care? After reading the many negative reviews here and on amazon, I am wary of investing more time only to have to wait the next 4 years for the books to be completed (2nd book out in 2012, 3rd out in 2014). I think I will take a break and maybe read a little in the next two years to draw it out, or maybe I will just get another book, like the Road, and forget this one altogether.
