A teenager who would probably skip through to the erotic sections might enjoy this more.
This was a genre? Ugh!
Anyone but...her Valley Girl inflection was so very annoying as was her raising and lowering her voice depending upon which character role she assumed.
Ugh...none. The writing was basic and elementary, the irrelevant incessant repetition of e-mail dates, times, to, from, subject, ugh!!!! The character development was totally lacking. The story line was totally implausible (26 year-old billionaire pursues a twenty-one year old naive virgin who's never been kissed, never had sex, doesn't have a cell phone, no pc, etc., etc.) Really? I mean, really?
I should have read the reviews before I wasted a credit on this book!
I thought this book was as plotless as a no budget porno, with a reader who sounds approximately as intelligent as a porn star. Wasted Credit! I kept waiting for a plot to develop... I mean, there are three of these books. I only made it through about half way. I will never get that time back.I suppose this is Rated X "Twilight".... weak stupid girl plus old creepy guy. I should have known better, I just expected more from a best seller.
The voice of the computer in War Games could have done a better job.
The part where Becca Battoe speaks.
Add a plot.
It is the worst book I've ever listen to. It is poorly written with dull, overworked, childish love crap that goes on for pages with sophomoric dialogue and e-mails. Ana, the female lead did not sound like a collage graduate. She sounded more like an immature teeny bopper. Oh the irony, Ana has a degree in literature.
I can't imagine how anyone could think this book is in the least bit interesting or worth reading even with the erotica.
The narrator is monotone and sounds as bored with the book as I was.
The only one who has won with this book is the author who is probably laughing all the way to the bank. I just wish I had not contributed to that deposit.
I found myself wanting my I-touch within easy reach at all times in case I had five minutes to get a Fifty Shades fix. I have read a fair amount of erotica and this just hit all the right spots.
I thought Becca Battoe's narration was lovely. You spend alot of time in the main characters mind and her voice brought the emotion of the passages out.
The only thing I would warn others about is to have the second book already downloaded and ready to go. The first book will leave you hanging. If I would have had to wait for the second book to come out I would have been pissed!
I am so glad I didnt read some of the reviews written here, it might have turned me away from a very enjoyable experience.
the prolonged intraludes and how she wanted more.
I don't, I feel this book is in a class all by itself
When Anastania interviewed Christian.
the love she has for Christian
I wasted my money on this audio was poor kept skiping and the reader need to put some drama in to her reading
Will not I canceled audible reader
I ended up buying the hard cover books loved the books
Would like to get a refund on the books
The narrator is so whiny and annoying! I could only get through 3 chapters before I went out and bought the book. I would NOT recommend this series as an audiobook - I couldn't imagine HOURS of her voice. I actually made a few friends listen to see what their thoughts were and they agreed they her voice was absolutely dreadful!
Couldn't stand the narratoe's voice and couldn't get into the story at all! It would have been best if Christian's voice was a male.
Would have been satisfied if I had read it myself but had a credit on my acct for the second book.. It's best to read yourself!!
Say something about yourself!
Listening to Becca Battoe is like nails on a chalk board. Her voice is so whiny and valley girl like. Awful. And holy hell, i have never listened to a narrated book with SO many mispronunciations!
E.L. James, PLEASE do not rebook Becca Battoe for any future readings!
I must admit, I like a little smut every now and then, so this book was sure to be on my list to check out. It did not disappoint. I was a little apprehensive at first, having seen some of the reviews about the narrator, but I thought she did fine. It wasn't the best book I've ever listened to, but I wasn't expecting it to be some great literary novel. I like to listen/read romance novels because I can lose myself in the story and discover different roles to fantasize about - this book was perfect for that. If you like some spice in your stories, then this is a great choice. Will I finish the series? Heck yes, already into book 2, with book 3 waiting in the wind!
