The book is pretty good but the narration is bad. I am terribly disappointed with the delivery.
Doubtful. The expressions used in the book were annoying, even more so when spoken out loud. They made Anna sound like she was 14 yrs old, not a recent college graduate. Also, I may be naive, but the basic premise of the book was too bizarre to be believable.
Probably not. It's not the type of subject matter that is likely to interest them (at least as far as I know).
I really disliked the 'valley girl' way the book was written, and I don't think the narrator helped to tone it down.
I barely finished the book, but I kept reading to see if Anna would grow a backbone and walk away from this nut case.
She could have been a little more convincing. Also there needs to be male voices to play the male parts.
the story line was great
I'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book.
It was a great tease until the end. There was nothing sexy about the reality of what he really wanted in the end. Flat out abusive ending made the preceding story a waste.
The ending, the assult
No I have not and will not
Anger, disappointment and pity for the girl.
I refuse to read another book because I do not wish to see her go back to him or any other such stories. The only resolve to this story is prison for him!!!!...
Homemaker, married to Dave Bargar, mother of 8, Christian, Seventh-day Adventist, love to read!
Trash. Poor grammar. Poor plot. Trash. Did I say trash? I am no prude, but this was a sad piece of literary work. Unfortunately the hype intrigues many. One word if you are intrigued.....Library. I want a refund.
This book is for suppressed, sexually frustrated, and simple minded women. Top 10 readers.
No. She is an awful narrator. Obnoxious.
Not really. It seemed like it was written from a shovunistic guys point of view of what he thinks women who want them act like.
Dont believe all the fuss. This book is not good.
Creating characters that one cared about. Although, one must take into account that I didn't finish this "novel". Also, drop the email crap. I almost went mad listening to the headers on the emails (and there are plenty). How did doing that add to the growth of the story? Very annoying.
Tweaking the characters: creating a female who was less gullible, less obtuse and more protective of her self-esteem. A male character who wasn't the stereotypical: rich, powerful and ultimately, irresistible miscreant. He wasn't bad enough to be evil nor human enough to care for. Getting rid of that "email" thing.
It just wasn't pretty.
I don't understand the appeal of this book. One friend described this book as "hot" and extremely addicting. Interesting how different our opinions are. I found it far from "hot" and actually couldn't get past the first half. I found myself flinching, not because of the sexual forays involved but, because I was so irritated with the characters. Has she not heard of self esteem and he, therapy? They should have listed this book as "juvenile porn". Sorely disappointed I wasted money on this book.
It was a bit awkward at first listening to erotica by someone elses voice but i did enjoy it overall
Yes i would like to continue the series
The best friend Kate
Both, i felt very attached to the characters by the end.
I did enjoy this book. However, i felt it lacked a bit of originality since the author had previously read twilight and there were so many simularities. Furthermore, i will look forward to finishing the rest of the series since she seemed to add what twilight was lacking; sex and reality!
EL James story is good the narrator not so much.
Don't like her voice and she wasn't believable
it gave me a spark :)
yes..it keeps your attention
it has steamy details but better than that it was about love
yes but i couldnt but it was addictive
listening to book 2 fifty shades darker now
