    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
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    everything. scenes lifted almost wholecloth from Pretty Woman and various other movies... so lame I couldn't even listen to the whole thing.


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    pretty much anything... take a writing class, stop "borrowing" from other sources so heavily and obviously... hello what movie that I have seen a million times has the rich guy order the entire breakfast menu at a fancy hotel for the poor girl that stays over in his hotel room??? have an original thought.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    NO WAY!!!! she doesn't emote well - not a good voice actress. While I realize she was to protray a college student as the main character the voices weren't well done.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    well in my version I cut everything after hour 2 - couldn't stand to listen to more drivel. but really should have stopped after the first sentence...


    Any additional comments?

    I am stunned at all the people who have gone crazy for this book. It does not deserve any praise. People must be hard up for the smut I couldn't stick it out to get to. Smut just isn't enough of a draw for me to stand the crap writing.
