yes, even though it got a little hard to listen to her sometimes, i really enjoyed the hands free listening. I can listen to it wilthout stopping. In the car or the store did'nt matter.
I liked how much she got into the book, but i did'nt like how she went over every little detail in the book, maily the emails, it drove me insane, i fast forwarded through most of it after a while.
When she told him to grow up and go jump at the same time.
I would read this series over and over again, it is one of my top 5 series. But i will buy the books from now on, the audio version cost way too much,
Fast paced romance about a forbidden subject
Anastasia because she was loyal, innocent and strong
too many to mention
a troubled love story
great series! I have reread it now 3 times!
This was my first audible and I am hooked! Just don't like the reading of emails especially when they are short....ugh!
Find different reading format for emails. reading just a little faster too.
nice voice, good reader, just too slow
yes! the way it ended made me want more, but knowing there was another was helpful and made me want to move faster to continue the story.
It was so bad I had to turn it off. Maybe if I had read it instead an audio it may have been better (not real sure) The part about the email did me in.
This is the first time I have read E.L. James. I will try one more book to see if I keep as an auther.
I auto most of my books and without a doubt this was the worst I have ever heard. So bad I had to write a commet
I think I would change the reader. I did not like her voice impression of the characters.
I'm told from co-workers who read the trilogy that book 1 comes together after you read all three. I am on book 2 now hoping it will tell me what the storyline is for this book.
Not if I didn't have to.
I will be able to give a better synopsis of the book once I have read all three.
The performance isn't really up to par with others I have listened to. And I mean no disrespect to the reader, but she sounds a little too much like the Valley Girls of the 80's. She got pretty annoying. As for the story...I think it was a bit too mild and too much of a romance. I still haven't talked myself into buying the next book.
I will more than likely try the next "Grey" book in the series, but if it is too much like the first one...I doubt I will waste my time with the third.
Too much like a Valley Girl and didn't really come across as intelligent as I think Anna was supposed to be portrayed.
I couldn't get passed the first 3 hrs. The characters were irritating to say the least. People kept telling me to keep listening, but if a book doesn't grab my attention in the first 3 hrs., I doubt any more time would make a difference. Poor writing, don't think there's anything the narrator could have done to change my mind.
not sure what's all the excitement about. Sounds like a good story if a high schooler wrote it. Formulaic descriptive sentences.
Ok so only got through part 1 of 3 maybe it picks up, but doubtful. I got it since EVERY female under 50 I know said I MUST read it. I figured my Name is christian, would be silly if I didn't know what everyone is talking about.
So pick it up if you need to know what the fuss is all about, but I'm pretty sure you can find better.
its just ehh.
I guess, maybe a duo would of worked better. The "male" Gray's voice made me laugh every time.
well depends who's playing the parts.
As far as books of this genre go, the erotic scenes were embedded in the whole story and were done well.
However, in gereneral, the writing quality of the book is quite poor. There are too many unnecessary repetitions that irritate the reader. Also the whole book is like a TV show where you have product placements on the scene. Some parts really sound annoyingly like advertisement.
The narrator was just OK, but she wasn't very successful with the different voices, especially the male ones. I usually was not able to understand who was speaking.
On the whole, I think it is a very sad story. All throughout the book, my dominant feeling was of sadness.
did not read the print version
Anastasia. It was interesting to hear her female perspective when she was thinking out loud.
