    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 listen to Fifty Shades of Grey again? Why?

    Yes, why do you think....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Inner Goddes parts in the book would have been lost for me if I hadn't listen to this read rather than read it.


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

    The riding crop......

    Story
    (1339)

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Amy Huber says: "Susan Ericksen is amazing!"
    "True to the In Death series"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Celebrity in Death to be better than the print version?

    Yes, audio gives a more involved feel for the story


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Nothing


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    The In Death series wouldn't be the same withour Susan. If you've listen to other books in this series you'd miss her voice and it would feel the same.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really

    Top 10


    What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

    Not sure

    Yes

    Would like to more from this author in future story lines with these characters.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunger Games to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audiobooks. Reading isn't my favorite thing to do. So using audio books is the solution. Yes, I would promote the Hunger Games in audio format.


    Would you recommend The Hunger Games to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes I would, has a very different storyline. Kept me interested through out the book.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Her voice and inflections she used


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure
