My partner passed away and I started having questions. Thanks for the things I’ve learned.

I’m caring for my partner with cancer, or so they say. I have lots of questions in life and death, and somehow this book enlightened me on things I have not been aware of or have an idea until I read this. I may explore this further now...

I love the historical background in the story. I love the adventures of Charlie (sometimes over the top sex, but I just treat it as art). I love how the story was narrated; easy to understand. Glad this all came together in a book. :)

I got this book to try an award-winning piece on my library(it can be great learning experience, as I aspire to write myself). I have yet to compare it to another award-winner, but this just didn't fit my taste. To start with, the story was already something very familiar, as the Ann Boleyn and Henry VIII's story has been told in may ways. Next, I observed they talked a lot rather than act in the book. I have to say I hate it! But I do realise the author was so creative in her creating conversations and choice of lines, and I guess that's top of her award-winning qualities. Another thing was, the sequence of events confused me in the story-telling as it was just jumping to one scene to another without clear and bold indication. Perhaps it's just me not used to that, but it wasn't the case on my past few other read books. I appreciated the narrator, who can shift to woman to man, young to old voices. Honestly, I didn't enjoy it in general. But I guess it's different with everyone else.

An interesting medieval love story

I loved the story...from how it started and ended. It didn't sound like it was ending in the middle of the parts, and kept you want to know more. Interesting details of the life and events during the time, it made me time travel! As Christian Grey was a picture of a 'perfect man,' made me picture Katherine as the counterpart woman.



Narrator was good in the changing of voices and the French lines, although I don't understand them (no translation as well).

Somehow, I can say I was a changed person after listening to this. The churches must find it controversial, but I guess he was convincing. I always come back to the topics in everything I see and observe around me since. Powerful!

A love story with a perfect hanging ending

Interesting love story. Makes you wish that you find the same 'rich' lover in your life. I'm not interested w/ the long narration of the sexcapades so I was just forwarding it. I love the inner goddess of Ana (makes me giggle). Found the learning bits useful in some of my encounters (e.g. how to fly a helicopter, which i still haven't done in my life). I hate the repetition of the email headings, but I guess it was needed. Makes you want for more.

Sweet story (just don't mind the shagging parts)

I'm really glad Christian didn't die as I thought it would end. I was carried away with the flash backs of his personality(perhaps he was well described after all), left me crying while travelling the train in the mornings and listening to it (they might think I'm crazy). Made me picture out a perfect man out of him (difficult to find a film counterpart). Really not into the sex parts though. Becca was impressive I think.

Fascinating; annoying ending

The story brought me to the medieval times which I wished for. Still have to discover the author and her other books, but the story annoyed me of constant ups and downs; a part you thought was already the happy ending begins another tragic story. Most annoyed of the twist in the ending about niece-uncle relationship??? (Wish i never heard it, but yes, it was really a debatable side of true history). I loved the character of Richard III in this book, unlike what they say he was. I hate some of the repeated lines (e.g.about the 2 princes' death in the hands of the king), but love how 'Anne' was read as the king talks to her...so sweet. Not good in rating narrators, but she was fine w/ me, esp. becoming a sexy voice for the kings.
