The triology is really amazing. It really goes into the mind and explores the damage of abuse and neglect at an early age. The subsequent way Christian regains control of his life can be considered shocking, but it really explores the way one mind chooses to cope.
You can't judge this trilogy based on expecting a normal romance novel, now ever the closest I can come to a comparison is Megan Harts "Broken"
It was okay. Not tremendous, not bad.
Struggling for Control
Would make a great mini series, but don't compromise the book by trying to fit it into a 2 hour movie!
No idea...I dont have time to read..I have to listen during "life"..it was read by Becca Bardot...she did a great job.
The college graduation...the narrator read it awesome. Made it very real.
F--k the contract.
Prepare for desires you never knew you had!
I am HOOKED to 50 shades...have read all 3 books in less than a month...cannot wait for a movie rendition!!
Maybe ....but no hurry
The readers were fine
Seriously? I am no prude but this was just wierd.
Just go rent porno. At least it doesn't pretend to be anything else. But hey ...to each his (her) own. I wouldn't argue with anyone wjo enjoyed it.
California Gold Rush
THe narrator in this book absolutely ruined the whole story for me, and when she tried to lower her voice to sound like a man, it made the whole story seem RIDICULOUS!!! What a waste of time and money!
The voice of the narrator was the most annoying voice ever. Drove me nuts. The content was gross and monotonous. I'll never choose another book just because it is a New York Times best seller again.
Less sex scene details and more story line.
Totally detracted from the book. I couldn't stand her voice. Valley girl voice. Ugh!!
80% of the sex scenes. I normally like that part of books but too much in this book
Unfortunately I did not read what this book was and just bought the first 2 based on Audible best seller-- this book is a cheap roamance novel , erotica with little or no story line-- extremely disappointed, and sorry I bought the second before reading the first, defintely not interested in the hird
Write an interesting story with some plot--
yes, the reading was fine
It had no redeeming qualitites
I do not understand how Amazon can publish this kind of material without some serious warnings. Careful not to allow this into the hands of young adults/teens.
omg, this book is so good, couldnt put it down!!!
of course Grey himself, but Anna was just as good
After all the hooplah I found this to be shocking boring and predictable. The narrator sounded very California girl and even whiny at times. I frankly couldn't finish the book.
Could not keep me interested, particularly the droning on and on with the emails being read between the characters. The responses of the female lead were extremely repetitive, such as "Geez!" and "Holy Crap" over and over.
Different narrator and some really interesting developments in the story.
Emails and repetitive female responses
Will not read this author again
First, I really don't understand what all the hype is about. The writing was average. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't all that great either. The story was okay. Yes, there is erotic content, but is that why everyone is buying this? There is much better writing out there that is also stimulating, if that's the goal in reading this book. I was sadly disappointed that this wasn't the "page turner" I had expected.
Second, the narrator was terrible. Her voice, inflection, tone, pronunciation; all of it was off. It was almost painful to hear her read. Normally a narrator's voice fades away into the story, but in this case the story wasn't good enough to get past it.
Third, I have never returned a book before, in print or electronic, but I returned this one.
