    Dr. Jamal Bryant takes a step into a controversial and exploratory zone of relationships and sexuality in this hard hitting three part series featuring "Vitamin C", "Ride With Me", "Take One For The Team", and Conversation with Zane!" The latter is a special encounter with the world renowned author and publisher Zane in a exclusive conversation on black sexuality. Most women, generally, don’t have much trouble attracting men.

    Would you try another book from Jamal-Harrison Bryant and/or the narrator?

    Book? This was more like church.


    What was most disappointing about Jamal-Harrison Bryant’s story?

    I did not expect someone to preach to me through the whole thing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Make it a book not a serman.


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

    No. Not even the interview with Zane......she is one of my favorite authors and it was disappointing in the questions he asked.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, I would just say go talk to a pastor instead.

    Jonquinette has always been nervous around men, but on the weekends her alter ego, Jude, goes on intense sexual escapades. When Jonquinette seeks the help of Dr. Marcella Spencer, the psychiatrist Zane originated in her best-selling novel Addicted, Jude’s response is to go on a sexual rampage. Meanwhile, Jonquinette becomes interested in her new neighbor, Mason, but Jude has no intention of letting Jonquinette fall in love—not when Jude’s having so much fun.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nervous to be better than the print version?

    No, I don't think you can replace how u interpert it in your mind for how someone else makes it sound.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nervous?

    Unexpected ending!


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

    I cant wait to see the movie since they are making it into a movie starring Boris Kodjoe. I would title it Green Pastures.


    Any additional comments?

    One of Zane's best books!

    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would defiantly broaden the vocabulary in this book, u hear the same words often. I also would change the person who read the book.


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

    When she acts out the man's voice it is so annoying, makes him seem unattractive.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    They would have to tweet it alot and then perhaps I would go see it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book may have been better for me if I had read it myself!

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Best Book I have read in a long time!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Pillars of the Earth the most enjoyable?

    I loved how this book brought you in right from the beginning and made u yearn for more.


    What other book might you compare The Pillars of the Earth to and why?

    No book comparies to this book, it is just great from beginning to end!
