    Maybe it was those extra five pounds I'd gained. Maybe it was because I was about to turn the same age my mother was when I lost her. Maybe it was because my husband and I seemed to be running out of things to say to each other. But when the anonymous online study called "Marriage in the 21st Century" showed up in my inbox, I had no idea how profoundly it would change my life. It wasn't long before I was assigned both a pseudonym and a caseworker. And, just like that, I found myself answering questions.

    If you could sum up Wife 22 in three words, what would they be?

    Easy Mindless Entertainment


    What other book might you compare Wife 22 to and why?

    Not sure


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Wife 22 and Researcher101 create Facebook pages.


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

    When Alice was crying in the car after her husband told her he had lost his job, and her son came up.


    Any additional comments?

    I could relate to the age of the main character and her husband, as well as the phase of life the entire family is in. This book was easy, yet entertaining. I needed the brain break that this book gave me.

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    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.

    Story
    What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    I am not sure anything could have made this book better. the writing was horrible and the narrator was even worse.


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This has got to be the worst narration of a book that I have ever heard. At first I thought it was just the epic fail of the masculine voice, but as I very painstakingly tried to continue listening I discovered it was just the narrator in entirety that I did not like.


    Any additional comments?

    I tried to feed into the media hype and I should have listened to my gut telling me that this was just bad. I wasted a credit on this horrible listen!
