Probably with the performer.
Yes. I made read the next in the series.
Someone with a softer, lower voice to fit the mood better. She sounded like a geeky teenager, not a young woman. No humor where it should of been, no awe where it should have been. A pretty flat unsexy performance.
It was o.k.
I had heard a lot about this book and was anxiously waiting for it. Just a bit of a let down, seemed like a cheap romance novel and the performance didn't do anything to help.
Possibly the worst narrator I have come across. Very difficult and annoying to listen too.
anything by a different author or narrator. Something with a bit of depth and fun
None. I have no interest in this second rate novel
After a lot of hype, a mediocre novel with a bad narrator. Waste of a credit
This was my first audio book because I wanted to listen when I am driving and not having too much time to read the actual book. I am hooked now... The book is very good adn the narrator is awesome! So much passion and so many emotions. Love it! I can't wait to know what is going to happen through the whole trilogy.
Christian Grey of course :-) Because he is kinky, good looking, rich and bossy.
She has a very sensual voice and great at describing emotions with her voice.
There are too many moments worth of remembering .
I didn't like the book. I didn't like the narration, I foolishly got all three books at once. I listened to the first one, if I stop there I can tolerate that as an ending. The thought of continuing any more of that annoying monotony makes me need a nap. I was allowed to return the second and third but for some reason not the first. Bleh, lesson learned.
I dont kow if its better but I loved it! Listened to it on my way to work and home every day!
Oh there are so many!
The narration was so bad, it sounded like a 14 year old trying to be soooo coy.
At least the rest of this series.
educated readers on doms and subs, if one was curious. showed how childhood /abuse atrocities created the character of Grey.
This book need to be READ, not told. Kept listening, hoping for a story. And, the endless e-mail chatter, naming, to, from, date, time, was excruciating. that portion needed to be abridged for sure.
Ok. I get that this is a book with lots of drama, emotional highs and lows. Lots of dialogue repetition! I think the book could be 50 shades shorter without the constant repetition. After listening to book one i have to say i smiled a couple of times when the couple enjoyed themselves outside of the playroom; and felt the disappointment the characters felt.
This is my first exposure to this type of book... I kind of felt, well get on with it, because i was loosing interest.
I do need to see how it ends and may buy future books, but i'll probably take a break.
I'm seeing some growth of character towards the end... we'll see how it turns out and whether i can complete the trilogy or not. I' d almost prefer to have someone tell me rather than going through the long, repetitive dialogue to get to the end.
This must be one of the WORST narrations I have ever heard. It was painful to listen.
Terrible reading, awful tones.
First, I have to say that the book was painful because of the narrator. Listening to her nagging childish voice would have made me want to go to drastic measures to silence her. When she was reading the emails I thought I would go crazy just wanting to know what the text was instead of what seemed like hours of "From:... To:....Time:...Subject... From..." There were dozens of these emails. On another issue, the book had far less of a porn aspect than I expected. I was expecting one episode after another, but they were scattered enough that I felt there actually was a good story buried deep inside. This is where I felt the book was worth reading. I want to know more about Christian Grey. I plan on reading hard copy versions of the other two books so I can skip the email nonsense if it still exists, and to escape the narrator. I really hate this because I am addicted to audiobooks because I walk at least two hours a day just to listen to my books.

Yes, I would. It's a great book and even better when your on your feet and don't mind listening to story while you work.
Only one? There are many.
No, this is my first.
Both, where it is suitable...many more laughs than cries.
