    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Story

    I couldnt get past the grating, sing-song voice of the child reader The writer chose to omit the word "the" from any sentence the child spoke in the story. Not sure why, but this wasnt cute or funny or endearing, just totally annoying. There was a story there someplace, but it was totally unlistenable for me so I did not end up hearing much of it.

    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

    After only so many repeated verses saying how incredibly horny this woman got being around the guy, it got old really, really quick. Is it possible that because Im a guy that I don't get it? Do women really want this kind of trash? I like well written porn as well as the next person, but this is unimaginative and poorly written. And there are three parts? Good lord! Total waste of time and my Audible credits.
