This was a big disappointment for me. I am obviously in the minority, I just did not like the book at all. The narrator was not very believable which may have been part of the problem, but I really did not find the idea good either. I did not like the book at all. I would never put myself in the situation to be a submissive first of all.
I much prefer a much different life style then this.
She was just not believable. I did not like the narration.
Don't waste your money. I don't feel to know how the book ends so I won't buy the other books.
Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.
I am not hard to please with narrators, but this one made sure I never heard this book. The main character sounded like a 14-year-old, (not good in this setting, to be certain.) The attempt at a man's character was like that same 14-year-old trying to convince her school she is her dad calling her in sick to school - and failing miserably. I gave up after less than an hour. I couldn't listen any more. I have heard good enough things that I will try to find time to read the actual book.
Have courage and follow your own faith...
Two noble and quite smart characters being VERY free to explore what is lying deep in their souls
The first interview
Besides the content of the book itself I would like to express my gratitude to AUDIBLE.COM making this novel available for listening with a VERY crystal clear flow...
Yes, it makes the book come alive and sadness you money on a paper back our hard covert book.
The interaction between the characters.
The whole book.
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
Yes, but it takes a while to get accustom to the reader.
The decisions, the anticipation, the love, the new expierences
Her voice is fine but when she tries to differentiate the characters it is horrible. I eventually got accustomed to the different voices, Christians is horrible.
Its at the resturant and he speaks about Mrs. Robinson, explains it to her.
Whats not to like but the different voices.
I did like some of the story.
It has taken me some time to get thru this book. I found it to be very slow listening, except for some parts. I do not like the person narrating. I find her boring and when she changes her voice to the male form it's not very good. She makes the story go slow. I am told that the 2nd book is better. I hope that it is better on audible.
I was recomended to this book by many friends. I just don't know if it's that good on Audible.
A young voice yes. A person with more harmoney to her voice. Someone who can change her voice to the male form that it's convinsing. The best bet would be to have a male reader for the male part.
It will be a move and I hope to see it.
.. Preview your own books. Have other people preview them and give you their opinions before you sell it to the public. The books is not terrible just that the narrator make it un- interesting. The parts that are good in this book you have your imagination help there
Never say never, but probably not.
Her intended inflections of character were lame and otherwise, she was simply reading the book. I never felt she was telling me a story.
Hope - that I might be able to write a successful book. The story line was preposterous.
My husband also listened to this and it has spiced up our intimate life (without copying stuff in the book.) Believable characters and inner dialogue of Anna is spot on.
I really have no idea how this book became so popular. I suppose housewives must be that sheltered to find some type of newfound sexual satisfaction from this book. I personally found it to be very poorly written, and very boring. The phrases "oh my" and "my inner goddess" made me cringe....all 1000+ times they were used. Anna comes across far too naive, and the sexual dialogue was too much. It's funny to think that an author could go overboard in both directions, but she somehow did.
Now, I'm not one to easily dislike a book. I certainly own my fair share of chic lit - and I mean really bad writing in many critics eyes (Sophie Kinsella, Emily Giffin, Lauren Weisenberg), and I thoroughly enjoy these reads. But I found myself anxiously awaiting the end of Fifty Shades. Very disappointed, I was looking forward to a good beach read.
Keep looking up .. Because that's where it all is. Kidd Kraddick my he rest In peace
The story was not as good as I thought
No... I like the 2 nd one a lot better
