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.

I loved this book...it took me a few chapters to get into it, but I will definately get the next one. The only negative to listening to it on audio is that the voices are all done by the same person and then there is 'erotic' dialogue and it sounds silly. But that's it. Other than that, I would recommend.

  • The Glass Castle

  • A Memoir

Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family; she called herself an "excitement addict."

The Glass Castle was recommended to me by a friend and my mother-in-law as an incredible book. I was apprehensive because I read some comments by other aubible users about the narration being quite dry. However, I listened to the sample and purchased the book anyway...I thought that the narration was fine. This book was wriiten in first person and told, not as a story, but as an account of what has happened in the author's life. Also, the author narrated it herself and told it as if she was talking to a friend, literally sharing her life story. I have a ton of respect for the author for sharing her story and for overcoming so many obstacles. It goes to show, life is more about what you make it, as opposed to settling for what your given.

Sylvia Browne showed us how to get in touch with departed loved ones in The Other Side and Back and Life on The Other Side. In Visits from the Afterlife, Browne journeys even deeper into The Other Side. She describes visitations with ghosts and travels to haunted homes and ships possessed by the otherworldly forces who walk their deserted decks. Through these spiritual visits, she explains the reasons behind many of the world's most bizarre and mysterious hauntings.

I am a true Sylvia Browne fan; as far as I'm concerned, she can do no wrong. I love the information that is provided in her books, although this is not the best book by her, I still loved it. One thing I wish was different would be for Sylvia to have narrated it herself...the last book by her I listened to, she narrated it, and it was a nice personal touch.
