Love the series of the Butlers. The narrator Annie Aldington brings the characters to life. Listening to this book as opposed to reading it is so much better due to the narration. Unputdownable.

If you could sum up The Jump in three words, what would they be?

London East End

What did you like best about this story?

gritty

the narrator definitely adds to the story by the fantastic accents of the London east end. I have listened to all Martina Cole's story's because of the narrator.

What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

more realistic characters, less perfection of the characters

Has Fifty Shades of Grey put you off other books in this genre?

yes

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

no, emphasis in wrong places.

What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

all

Any additional comments?

just like a Mills & Boon meaning perfect characters: rich, beautiful, perfect but with more sex which was not exciting for me.
Also I think the male character is obsessive/possesive; and just because he is rich and handsome its ok. Cannot believe this book is popular.
