love listening to great books while I work, clean, and drive...a great way to experience great books!!!
the anticipation of what the characters would do
When Christian gps Ana at the bar and comes to her rescue.
the voice work was ok but the emails: listening to the heading of each email prior to the actual message was madding!!! "From Christian Grey CEO...." OK WE GET IT!!!!!
when Ana enters the elevator for the last time and Christian is a live wire of pain...it is a haeart breaking moment when one knows they have lost love.
A BETTER ENDING...
A familiar author...I know then I will like the ending for sure.
She does pull you into the story with her reading.
Bring out another book with a continuation and a better ending!
her voice for the man was too cheesy
both the main
I had heard great things about this book but it was not interesting or unique in any way.
I did not read the print version of Fifty Shades of Grey however, I am reading book 2 in the Shades trilogy, and I do miss the narration....I may have to purchase the audio version of the second book.
The scene where Ana first experiences pain as pleasure in the Red Room Of.....
I did have an extreme reaction to this book and it made me hot.
I have read a lot of comments where listeners did not like the narrator....I have to say...Give her a chance. I did not immediately like her either, but as the story cranks up....she really grew on my and became Anastasia Steele.
I am just a little surprised to see that this racy book is such a best seller....who is buying it??? What is the demographic?
I never re-read/listen to a story.
I have not listened to her before. I think she reads well, but i thought her voice was a bit young for the role, it was a little distracting. I think she would have been an excellent young Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries.
unconventional adult love story
wouldnt want to give anything away. it is a lovely adult love story.
Christian. He is a very troubled man and Ana helps him see that he's a good person.
It made me laugh and cry.
I've read all 3 books and they are very well written. I like the email exchange between Ana and Christian. I think it was needed to read all the lines of the emails as they change the subject line and signature lines in the emails. I do agree that it would have been nice to have a man read Christians parts. Overall it was good. I will probably listen to this trilogy more than once.
I am gonna listen to the rest of the trilogy. I'm hoping she's gonna kill this bum!
She needs to loose about 95% of the holy comments. Holy crap!, Holy Moses!, Holy Sh!*!, etc. It made her sound like a 13 year old.
I didn't think her voice for Anastasia was bad like everyone else is raving about. I just thing the author wrote her to sound too young with a lot of her terminology. I think she should have made Christen sound like more like the pervert that he was!
Angry at the idiot that Christen was. And happy at the end.
I think Christen need to invest some of his fortune into therapy so maybe he can have a normal life...Pervert!
Better writing, character development (i.e., not relying on stereotypes), and scene construction. Dialogue is poor at best. The interior dialogue of Anastasia is preposterous.
Learned to write. Her use of adverbs is appalling.
Sort of-- the Christian Grey character voice is laughable. But of course, the narrator had horrible material with which to work.
This "novel" seems like it is written by a teenager. I'm embarrassed for the person from my book club who chose it. Good grief, I will have to suffer through it for her sake. I cannot believe this got published in a world where Russell Banks, Dennis Lehane, Barbara Kingsolver, P.D. James, Tom Franklin, Michael Koryta and others exist-- all of whom write 80 levels above E.L. James.
I don't know, but it's really popular so a lot of people do.....
She was fine
I couldn't cut a character. I just wouldn't read the book.
I am a total ROMANCAHOLIC and I have read and listened to plenty of books that were edgey but if the story was good and in decent taste I am fine with the books. After getting into this one, I felt very sick to my stomach and couldn't finish it. That's not how I want to feel when reading a romance.
I have not read the book so I cannot comment on the honestly. I would guess I would speed read the E-mail portions- because I could - a little hard to do when having it read to you.
It is an interesting look from Anastasia's point not having any clue about the lifestyle of Christen-
She does a good jobe of switching characters. Believable in the varied emothions.
