I would recommend this book for a good love story even with the kinky sex.
Christian telling Anastasia that he loves her.
yes, made me laugh and cry
Absolutely not! Maybe if EL decided to actually learn to write, but I will hopefully never listen to another book narrated by ms Battoe. It felt like I was listening to a 14 year old girl reading her fanfiction, which isn't too far from the truth to be honest.
A better understanding of the BDSM scene first anad foremost. Better characters, better narrator, so in other words, a different book.
This book rates somewhere in the upper middle.
Christian. His character changed dramatically over the course of the series. I was amazed at the depth of development that the series had.
Becca Battoe did an okay job. It wasn't the best narration ever but by no means the worse. Everytime she said "oh, my" I actually rolled my eyes. lol But I suppose that is the author's doing and not hers.
There's a darkness in all of us, it's up to us whether we choose to embrace it or not.
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.
