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.
intriguing, mysterious and sexy.
I dunno ;)
For the most part I think she did a fine job.
Great story. It kept me interested the entire time.
I'm not so sure I would listen again. I didn't think the narrator matched what the story needed. My first impression was jarring surprise. It took a while to get used to the way Christian's voice was depicted. Not a fan, sadly.
I like the story better in written form. Listening to it on Audible changed my views on it completely. Ana sounds like a complete moron when you hear the story. It's not Becca Battoe's fault, it's the content. Every sentence out of Ana's mouth is a silly question. "What's she doing here?" "Who's that?" "Christian loves me?" "Is that a car?" "Are we driving?" "How did I get in this bed?" "Where am I?" ... And on and on...for a smart girl she sure is dumb! It kind of wrecked it for me and made it a really silly book after listening to it.
Some were okay, some were fine, and Christian's voice, wasn't the best.
No pain, no gain!
This story is entertaining and not anything more which is what it was meant to be.
I thought the Twilight series was the worst written books of all times, until I wasted my time on Fifty Shades. I will not make the same mistake I did with Twilight and listen to the other two. Bad soft porn at best, and I had seen and heard way better bad soft porn. Get a better sex life America and you won't need the impossible fantasy of a 27 year old self made millionaire and his multi orgasmic virgin submissive. Rubbish!
Not a snow balls chance in hell.
New! Sexy! Exotic!
Anastasia, because she is discovering everything everything for the first time.
It did make me laugh and I didn't have an extreme reaction because I had read the books.
