Look upward and see the wonders I've seen
No. I am all done with this author and narrator. I understand the author wrote fanfiction. It's too bad some publisher picked her over the hundreds of others I have read. This book was not erotic, well written or even interesting. The plot was missing, these characters had no spart and I did not buy the attraction for one minute. The overuse of 'holy', 'inner goddess', 'oh my', 'hot' and 'Christain Grey" made this book more annoying than anything else. Once you sleep with a man, he loses his last name forever. When the main character spends so much time wondering why he picked her, we start to feel the same way because she comes off as boring and unreal. We are supposed to believe that she has never had a relationship by the time she is 22? She lives with the editor of the school newspaper who comes from a wealthy urban family and has remained 'naive'? EL spend some time watching American television and you will realize there is no way thsi person exists.
Absolutely NOT. She is horrible and should stand aside to let better performers obtain the job.
The emails, and the endless talks with her subconvious and inner goddess.
I wish I could get my cedit back!
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...
This book needs a disclaimer. "Attention Sexually inexperienced young adults - the material herein is not love, or even normal sexual behavior. There is nothing in here that you should aspire to, or even try." Book 1 is nothing but very dark porn, with somewhat of a story line . Profoundly disturbing. Moreover, the concept that an intelligent and educated young virgin, with no prior sexual comparison, pursuing such a (S&M) relationship, is very un-nerving and quite frankly, ridiculous (I hope). My initial thought was of other young women reading this, and thinking ... oh, ok ... this is an acceptable kind of relationship, Wow, that frightens me. This is not a book for vulnerable young adults, and I worry that the heralding of this trilogy, will make the specific s&m/dom nature of sexual content here, appear mainstream to impressionable young people.. S&M RELATIONSHIPS ARE NOT HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, AND CERTAINLY NOT LOVE! Individuals who can only find sexual gratification from this type of relationship, are severely damaged, and most probably sociopaths. Book 2 had a better story line. However, ... I got to the point, fairly quickly, where I completely glossed over the multitude of sickening move by move s&m sex scenes, in the hopes of returning to some significant story line.
