    Eugénie R., born in foie gras country, follows the man she loves to Paris but soon finds herself marooned. An outcast, she charts the treacherous waters of sexual commerce on a journey through artists’ ateliers and pawnshops, zinc bars and luxurious bordellos. Giving birth to a daughter she is forced to abandon, Eugénie spends the next 10 years fighting to get her back, falling in love along the way with an artist, a woman, and a revolutionary.

    Would you listen to The Unruly Passions of Eugénie R. again? Why?

    Yes, and I plan to. It's a stunning story that weaves initiate portraits through historical events. The language is beautiful. the narration is spot on for multiple voices, without being campy. The story, my god, the story. This may be the single best book I've listened to.

    Story

    Obsessed with creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material to fashion a new being, which he shocks into life with electricity. But his botched creature, rejected by Frankenstein and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy his maker and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelley's chilling Gothic tale was conceived when she was only 18, living with her lover Percy Shelley near Byron's villa on Lake Geneva.

    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.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    valley girls?


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

    more reasonable history for Christian Gray. Less "Surprise" from Anna. Really is anyone that naive at that age


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    her voice is irritating over time


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

    it kept me company on a long drive
