    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    I love this book, but the voice of the narrator is terrible!!! Her impression of male voice is super irritating and makes me want to stop listening to it. Our Cristian cannot sound the way she "sounds him out" UGGGGH!

    Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just 16 years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling as a college student, he met a young boy begging on the streets of India. When Braun asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, he simply answered, "A pencil." This small request became the inspiration for Pencils of Promise, the organization Braun would leave a prestigious job at Bain & Company to start with just $25 at the age of 24.

    D. Goess says: "Brilliant and Inspiring!"
    "Loved it, very inspiring and Great Cause"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Promise of a Pencil?

    Basic, simple dreamer who went for it. I dont know much about his personal life, weather he was wealthy or not to be able to take this risk, yet the Cause is fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Coming from a 3rd World Country myself, I know the importance of a simple pencil and paper. Education is such a commodity in poor countries. When someone actually takes the change and gamble that Adam did, and start something as Incredible as POP, My Gosh, Where would society be. Bravo Adam! I applaud you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Adam travels to Guatemala and spends a few weeks with a local family to educate each other.


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

    When Adam goes back to Guatemala and learns that the family he had spent a few weeks with earlier, actually spoke fluent English. How the helping of each other inspired him and helped that family.

    Story
    (916)

    The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's portrait of the Jazz Age in all its decadence and excess, is, as editor Maxwell Perkins praised it in 1924, "a wonder". It remains one of the most widely read, translated, admired, imitated, and studied 20th-century works of American fiction.

    Redhawk Readers says: "Something you won't fall asleep to..."
    "I Hate Daisy!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Great Gatsby the most enjoyable?

    I loved Tim Robbins Reading of this book. It was clear and crisp.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I cannot understand How a Driver like Gatsby could fall for a woman like Daisy. She has No Backbone, Nothing special about her. Its maddening..


    What about Tim Robbins’s performance did you like?

    You actually are able to understand what he is saying. NO Accent, It was perfect.
