Yes and I have, however, I also warn them about the voice of the narrator. I'm not sure why she chose to use a whiney "valley girl" voice for the character of Ana, but it was very hard to get past.
Not really sure there is anything currently out there with the depth and layers of these two characters comparable.
"Fifty Shades of Grey, Hollywood ruining another book because they don't take the time to get it right".
At first? Hot! At second? Hotish, and a bit... WHOA? But by the seventy millionth time you hear the same sex scene repeated... it just gets lame. This first book was just ok. Enough story to keep you going, but couldn't the author get more creative with her adjectives?! The 2nd and 3rd books have a better story, but the repetitive stuff doesn't stop.
It was ok
It definitely made you feel
It would of been nice if narration was done by a woman for female parts a man for male parts! That is my only complaint!
If Ana had been more realistic. She was so naive
NO!!!! NO!!! Her whining was annoying
NO, I could barely make it through the book. I skipped chapters because it was so boring and Becca Battoe was awful or maybe it was the character
Ana was so needy and naive and then christian was sooooo needy. It was just to unrealistic to me. Anyone that has ever been in a relationship before will find this a hard read. This book is meant for women that are lonely virgins and dream of a man coming along. to will love them. More power to you ladies but I will never read another one of these books and will discourage my friends from reading it too.
After only so many repeated verses saying how incredibly horny this woman got being around the guy, it got old really, really quick. Is it possible that because Im a guy that I don't get it? Do women really want this kind of trash? I like well written porn as well as the next person, but this is unimaginative and poorly written. And there are three parts? Good lord! Total waste of time and my Audible credits.
If Ana wasn't so naive and if she didn't do what she ended up doing to Christian despite everything he tried to tell her.
Cut out the To and From in all the emails and the signatures after each email. One full reading of an email was fine I didn't want each email read all the way out from whom it was sent from the time the date and so forth. Got very repetitive. Needs more to the storyline as well. Nothing against the sex but there just didn't seem to be much of anything else to this book plot wise really.
Anger at Ana, frustration with Ana, and annoyed with her. I felt sadness for Christian and a pain for all that he suffered/suffers.
No, did not care for the reader. Was very dissapointed
The whole book
No, I would not.
It did not make sense for a girl who is new to sex to be so eager. The body takes time to adapt... not a realistic view. It just is not really like that. It was just a copycat version of "Nine and a half Weeks", which I liked much better. It ended almost exactly the same. Was very predictable.
I would not read any others in this series.
she said certain words too much. like murmer, bright eyed, etc. poor writing
I love reading. I enjoy a little of everything. It's a way for me to relax.
Yes, this book just opened a new can of worms to say the least.
Christen is my favorite. Sexy, Sexy Sexy.
She very good but I really would prefer that the men sound more like men.
Out of control sex maniac.
Each book gets better and better as the stories unfold.
yes, even though it got a little hard to listen to her sometimes, i really enjoyed the hands free listening. I can listen to it wilthout stopping. In the car or the store did'nt matter.
I liked how much she got into the book, but i did'nt like how she went over every little detail in the book, maily the emails, it drove me insane, i fast forwarded through most of it after a while.
When she told him to grow up and go jump at the same time.
I would read this series over and over again, it is one of my top 5 series. But i will buy the books from now on, the audio version cost way too much,
