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.
Didn't live up to the hype, in fact it was a load of rubbish.....Last time I get drawn in by hype!
not the other two books in this series for sure!...Probably a good Herman Wouk story
So-So but she had little to work with in character development anyway!
Poorly written. In fact, downright boring. I kept waiting for it to get interesting and half way through I gave up. I don't understand all the hype.
Rewrite the entire book
I truly wished I had gone on reviews of others and not listened to this book. The narrator was so, so, so bad that I envisioned the female character as a complete idiot and had to just stop listening. Also, not into the whole S&M thing.
This gal ruined this story. She was soooo bad, I can???t believe she was chosen to narrate anything much less this book - i gave up after an hour - couldn???t handle any more err???s - who say???s that in real life?? - I may read the rest.
There was a lot of negative about the narrator but I thought she was fine, I really wish they had a male and a female narrator. I love the characters in this book and the story is fun.
I love his obsession with her.
I think she does a fine job, she sounds like someone in her early twenties.
I have laughed several times.
Narrator sounded stupid trying to make a guy's voice. The overall feeling I got from the main character, Anastasia was that she was a fickle idiot that would have a nervous breakdown if the cashier let her make the decision "paper or plastic". I get that this book is about submission and dominance but for real, you could have given her a brain. Also, the constant rants and ravings over Christian being so dreamy was insanely over the top and made me feel like I was reading a 12 year old's diary, lol. Not to book for me, wasted a credit, wahhh :P
This was the most ridiculous, poorly written and narrated book I have ever listened to. It sounded like the author had a third grade education with phrases such as, "Oh my," "crap," "double crap," "holy crap," and yes, even "triple crap." I sat through the main character blushing and flushing and turning every color of the rainbow. If I had to sit through one more cliched phrase, my head would have exploded. If you want to listen to someone raising an eybrow, cocking his head, smirking, saying jeez, and the absolutely worst of all, the biting of the lip about 10 million times, then waste your money. I actually feel embarrassed for the author and editor because it's so poorly and childishly written. The sex seens are completely laughable and are the antithesis of erotic. If you want to become celibate, buy this book.
I will if I can get past this narrators voice. I don't know she just doesn't quite catch the tone of the book for me. I would also like to point out that I never write reviews..good or bad...but I have been waiting all month for my credits to get here so I can get these books but I have only have been listening for 10 mins and I still cant get past this girls voice. I am not happy. I hope that they will do a recast. That's all for now.
I love a challenge...and to get a man to change his world upside down is the ultimate challenge...Christian has so many sides to him that you could never get uninterested.
I don't know but definitely not this young lady...I am open for suggestions...
