Yes and no - but mainly because I love reading - but listening to it was just as good, plus I could listen to it at work
"F*ck the paper work" - it's a moment in the elevator....you can feel the emotion, it's awesome.
I felt like I was in Ana's head....it was easy to imagine Becca's voice was Ana's voice
All of it....but I love this book after I read chapter 1
Becca does her best - I could not stop laughing after she did Christian's voice the first time and it took a couple chapters for me to REALLY get used to it - but if you love the books, and I do - you can look past all that and listen to what she is saying rather than vocusing on her voice.
Not sure what to say really. I love listening to audio books. :)
I was absolutely captivated. Teased. Excited. Could NOT put it down. I may need to have a talk with my husband! LOL
It was dark and romantic.
She has a very soothing voice. To hear that voice describe such dark matter was captivating.
Absolutely! It turned me on and opened my eyes to a side of myself I had NEVER even imagined existed. I cannot put into words it's full effect on me.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? lol. I totally did.
I did warn her that it is a bit intense, kinda twisted, and very hot.
This book is only for the open-minded, but I actually like it more than the sequels because I think they get a bit tame. . .in comparison. :)
P.S. I actually liked the narrator. It worked for me.
P.S.S. Check out the E L James web-site. The soundtrack is AWESOME!
Oh god, the ending for sure. I admit, I couldn't wait 10 more days for my new credits and actually bought more.
never knew what to expect
lots of twists and turns. She was able to bring him out of his horrible past
I think she did a fine job
On my second listen
I would listen to this book again. I got all 3 and loved the story line. I love this Trilogy so much I also got the books for my shelf.
There so many memorable moments that I just can't name one.
I love the way Becca Battoe reads and and her ability to differentiate characters.
Well now (fans blushing face), that was an interesting listen. The story definately had threads of Twilight-likeness to it. Ultimately I was able to separate out the two stories pretty well. Interesting and erotic to say the least. One thing that kept me from adding a few more stars to the review is Ana's inner monologue. It's partially the author's fault and partially the narrator's fault for the annoyance I think. "Oh my" "Oh my" I'm a bit of a geek and every time she said "Oh My" I thought of George Takei... awkward!! But the frequency with which she says it and the way the narrator speaks it was grating. Of course that isn't enough to stop me from downloading books two and three...
I have loved books every since I could read. During my elementary & high school days I spent my time in libraries getting books to read.
Romance, adventure, intrigue, and mystery laced with erotic episodes makes this novel sublime. It was worth listening to and should be heard again.
The e-mail's (better while reading the books not listening), SHOUTY CAPS ;), when Ana goes off on Mrs. Robinson...
Everything!!! I read the books first, then got the audio version. Big mistake. I generally love reading books over again if I really like them and I did these. Listening to the audio version almost put me to sleep. They are a lot more enjoyable/entertaining to read than they are to listen to.
Anger, sadness, happiness, joy, laughter...
I experienced just about every emotion while reading these books!
I find narator's voice distracting.
A different narator, perhaps a more mature voice. Her inflections and timing is off.
I think being are being overly negative about the reader. I didn't have a problem with her. She wasn't the best but I have heard worse. I thought she did a fine job!
