    Story
    (12512)

    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
    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    NO! The story line is as predictable as any romance novel. Becca Battoe has anything but a professional voice. I felt as if I were listening to a 10 year old reading porn.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E L James again?

    Probably not unless James can come up with multidimensional characters. Ana and Christian were both a little flat. To title the book 50 Shades of Gray is wrong in so many ways. I agree Mr. Gray had many psychological issues, but his character was also predictable.


    What didn???t you like about Becca Battoe???s performance?

    Her voice is too childlike with the inability to change it to sound like different people.


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

    I probably wouldn't publish any of it. Take out the sex and what you have is a love story for teen girls. Also, the sex became predictable. Totally a waste of a credit and listening time.


    Any additional comments?

    Even the cliffhanger scene at the end is not enough to get me to purchase the second or third book.
