    Story

    Overall, the story was interesting and kept my attention. But there is one think I remember most about this audiobook. Mr. Stechschulte kept pronouncing "javelina" with a "j" instead of an "h". Now, maybe that's the way they say it in Texas, but it's not the way we say it in Arizona. You may be thinking that word wouldn't come up much in this book, but it did quite a few times. Each time it was like nails down a chalkboard.

    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

    I didn't give this book 1 star because I did actually listen to the whole thing. However, I was annoyed most of the time. I guess there was only so much the narrator could do with the material, but I found myself telling her to "shut up". The book was very repetitive; it could have been much shorter (and better). My reaction at the end of the book: it's about time! and yay, it's over! Although a friend said if I made it through this one, continue with the 2d (but skip the 3d), I will move on to something else.

    Story

    Chillingly current and filled with more intelligence secrets than Tom Clancy, Digital Fortress transports readers deep within the most powerful intelligence organization on earth - the National Security Agency (NSA), an ultra-secret, multibillion-dollar agency, which (until now) less than 3 percent of Americans knew existed.

    "Good story"
    Overall

    This was my first Audible book so I wasn't sure what to expect. The story was good, but the sound quality varied. It seemed as though they switched readers in the middle of the book and tried to patch in certain sections. Also, the file cut off partway through the epilogue. Given the convenience of downloading the book, it was definitely worth a listen.
