What drew me to this book was not the sex, but the potential of a love story! I loved listening this book because it made it somehow easier to relate to the main character. At first, I didn't live the reader's voice, but the more I listened the more it became the voice of Ana.
I loved the story between Ana and Christian. They had chemestry and neither could deny it! I really loved the emails between the two!
Becca Battoe brought forth the voice of Ana. She read it very much the way I envisioned how the characters would sound. I really enjoyed how she got into the story and whispered when it was stated or giggled when it was written. Loved her!
Honestly, I think I laughed, cried and giglled!
This is not a book just about sex, although that is what 90 percent of the book is about! You will fall in love with the main characters and will not be dissapointed! I promise!
Es la primer novela erotica que escucho y me encanta porque en el tiempo que dedico para mi misma funciona a la perfección.
El mundo real desaparece y solo somos el libro y yo!
Porque??? No hay palabras tienen que leer el libro.
El cambio de voz que maneja con cada personaje, EXCELENTE!
La verdad todo el libro me mantuvo atenta, así que no podría escoger un momento espacifico.
I love this series, one profoundly beautiful series and each book better than the last.
I'll never forget Christian and Ana!
Yes, I thought it was very good. What a love romance! Now, don't get me wrong, there is a lot that the characters like that I don't like but the love they express makes for a wonderful story!
The love - of course!
Good series. Yes, it's smut. Better than most 'romance novels', though. Obviously I didn't pick it for character development or literary genius, so those of you who want to criticize, remember the point of this book. I personally had a little trouble with my own impression of the characters' ages, but nothing that spoiled the book for me. Again, it was all in good fun, and has made other books of similar content a little boring by comparison.
This Audiobook is fun, well read/acted by Becca Battoe and can be an addictive listen! Plus, it leaves you wanting more and it delivers with 2 revved up sequels.
When it was revealed that Anastasia was a virgin-unexpected twist!
Anastasia AND Christian
This book had me gasping and red faced, as well as laughing. You really get involved with the characters and story.
This serried is a highly erotic, intelligent modern day fairy tale...that could be absolutely true which makes it all the more fun. The characters are well developed & you really can get caught up in all the "fireworks". The erotic areas leave nothing out and had my heart racing. I'm sure I will listen to the series multiple times.
I never read the print version.
I don't have anything that I've read too compare it to. I usually only read true crime and suspense/ horror type books.
Don't have a favorite part, so far I like it all.
It's definitely very explicit at times, very erotic, but written tastefully. This series has kept me wanting to keep listening to see what happens next!
I would consider the print version to be better. The story itself is phenomenal. Becca Battoe did not do such a great job narrating the book. I envision a much more manlier voice for Christian and I am not too keen on her "valley girl" sound to depict the females in the book.
Aside from the sex. The relationship between Christian and Anna is in the process to grow into something beautiful.
Possibly, if I find her voice more suited for a different type of character in a different book. I probably would have enjoyed it more if the voice of Christian was performed by a man. I don't think one person should narrate the book for all parts.
There were many parts of the book that moved me. Makes you wonder how a guy like him chooses a girl like her. A particular moving experience was when he took her flying early in the morning to see the sunrise. And when he visits her at her mothers because he missed her. It is moving when you see Christian genuinely caring for Anna. Christian can be so forceful, yet loving and caring. Anna is like a lump of clay ready to be molded into whatever Christian would like her to be. In the end you left to wonder why she leaves, a cliff hanger till the next book I guess. But I really think I will purchase the next book and read it myself. Becca kind of ruins what I would imagine what the characters would sound like. Plus, the cost of purchasing a book compared to purchasing an Audible book is significantly less.
Overall it was a good first experience. I'm looking into which book I might download next.
Amazing trilogy! I hope there is more Christian Grey! I read comments on how bad people thought the woman doing the reader was but I thought she was great, yes when she did Christians voice it did sound funny but wouldn't any woman trying to do a mans voice? thought it was great and poeple shouldn't be so harsh.
