I didn't read the print version, but I choose audio over print anytime I can.
when Christian showed up at the bar to rescue her from herself.
When he wanted Anna to meet his Mother
Even if you took all the "mommy porn" out, the book is still a great story.
No I don't think so. Others who have read the whole series tell me to hang in there it gets better. I guess my feelings are I shouldn't have to hang in there to get to the best part of the story.
Less email, more development of the characters other that "how perfect and hot" they are
I hated the endless emails....part of the reason I read is to get away from day to day stuff- like email.
The story kept me enthralled. Very errotic!
The elevator scene when Christian said "F**k the paperwork"
Very hard to distinguish the characters at times.
The end of the book was a cliffhanger. It absolutley needed a follow-up book.
The book kept me interested and I was able to push past the less than great narration. I think I will buy the books and see if I can get a different prespective. I wish that the book was read by someone else.
I bought this because all of my friends were raving about it. I don't see what the fuss is about. The author obviously never entered into any form of BDSM herself as she doesn't have a clue how they work. This is chix porn. There is nothing wrong with that if it is done well. 50 Shades is not. I am so glad I didn't buy the trilogy! Wasted CREDITS! The narrator sounded like a teenie bopper which I found distrubing for this subjet matter. Anna is supposed to be 21.
The repettitive use of "oh my" got on my nerves. The reading of the emails with time, date, subject matter and full signatures had me saying blah blah blah over the top of them.
Who was this girl's editor??? Seriously!
If I wanted to listen to a valley girl, I would have asked a teenage girl to read the novel for me. In the first five minutes, all I could think was, 'I hope she doesn't talk like this the entire novel.' When listening to a book in this category, I want to hear a seductive and mature voice, let it be male or female. I bought the trilogy and am upset that I couldn't even make it through the first book because I felt as if I listening to some sort of weird erotic teen sex story. Awkward. I made it about halfway through the novel and had to stop. I now have three audiobooks that I will never finish and now I have to go out to purchase the "paper" books so I can finish the novels. I would not recommend this audiobook to others simply based on the narration.
I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey much better in audio than the printed version. Becca Battoe did a wonderful job with this book.
In my reading experience there is nothing to compare it with.
In Fifty Shade of Grey it was the interview, throwing up in the flower while Grey held Ana hair back, flying in Charlie Tango.
Yes I could not sleep or eat listening to this book. I want to listen to it again.
I am recommending to everyone over the age 21. I wish this was written 30 years ago. I will be giving this book as a Bridal shower present from now on.
This book was completely rediculous. The storyline was utterly childish. Anastasia is an idiot and Christian is a weak P.O.S. I got to a point (when all the emails were flying) that I actually had to turn down the volume or pull out my earphones. It was infuriating.
Waste of time and money.
Not write it
Becca is not at fault. She had to read an implausible story with dialogue that sounded like it was written by someone in junior high school.
the love that formed between the dominate Grey and Ana.
For the most part yes.
It was horribly read, the storyline was dull.
Just takes forever to get to the point.
She sounds like she is talking through her nose.
Too hard to say
i was really disappointed.
