The old narration sounded like a 13 year old girl that just inhaled helium. She was "chirpy" and "squeeky" and "nasally". It was the worst narration I had ever heard for the numerous audiobooks I have listened to. The new one sounds like a young woman, as it should. Much better! However the story is a joke. It is witten like a bad daytime soap opera. A 21 year old VIRGIN hooks up with a 27 year old self made multi billionaire that acts more like he is in his 50's than 20's. No 21 year old virgin that is extremely SEXUALLY REPRESSED is going to jump into the middle of a severe BDSM relationship. It is not erotica at all, if anything I would say it is a poorly written romance novel. I cannot fathom what all the buzz is surrounding this book.
Great romance story
The entire story is great, but particularly the part when the couple run into various problems and they are solved succesfully.
I cried at the end when she leaves him. Luckily I have read the following two volumes on my Kindle and know that it is not the end for them.
I loved the story line of this book. What a great story!
The most memorable was the ending....I loved it.
Not listened to any of her recordings, this is the first and it was good.
Yes, I listened to this book everywhere I went.
I had heard that this was an extremely good series before I ordered this audio book. I read the only review on the site I saw and almost didn't order it because the reviewer was so down on the narator (voice too young, etc.) Yes this narator does sound very young, however, keep in mind that the character is only 21 years old. Since I wanted to listen instead of read, I took a chance. The narators voice was a little distracting sounding more like a 12 year old, but I was able to get past that and finished the audio in less than a week leaving me waiting for more.
I am writing this in the wee hours of April 17, anxiously waiting for the next two books to come out in audio,. I will pay for book two, and on the 19th buy book three with my monthly credit. When I finish all three, I plan to listen to them all again.
This is my first venture in to this genre of books. I love them. These are not for the fanit of heart, nor are they for teenagers, but for mature adults they are some of the best books I've ever listened too.
PASSION, LOVE, CHRISTAIN
WHEN ANA ASKS CHRISTAIN WHAT SHE GETS OUT OF THE PROPOSAL AND HE SAYS "ME"
LOVE LOVE CHRISTAIN, AT SOME MOMENTS I WANTED TO SLAP ANA. BUT I LOVE THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER.
Im Chante, 25, Ilove 2 read!!
I would highly recommend thsi book but to a mature reader!! The audible version takes you on an romantic, erotic journey! It's as if your watching a movie!
one the top 3
i laughed allot and i really can understand it. going through allot of the same life details
It opens a window into an untold side of a sexual relationship with a great storyline.
This story is about something few speak of out loud. It gives inside into an unexplored part of life for many.
At times the narration was to slow compared to the stories pace.
When Ann finally realized that she could no longer compromise but even leaving was detrimental to her fame of time, heart and even physical being.
I have not read a book for fun in almost 10 years. This is in part to my work schedule and what my occupation Intel's. After years of being too busy to read anything not related to work I chose this book to get back on the wagon. I obviously chose wisely. This book was absolutely addictive. I finished this book within a few days and started the second book by the end of the week. By the end of the second week I finished the second book then started the third book. This trilogy was a breath of fresh air which made me feel emotions and curiosity that I never thought that I could experience from a book. I still did not have time to actually read this book so I listened to it in Audio format so that I am still able to continue to do other things while I enjoyed this book. For the first time I am truly in LOVE with a book... (Smiley Face)
My favorite character was definitely Christian Grey. I aspire to be more astute and driven like his character without the 50 shades of "Fu(expletive) Up"
Again this was the first book I listened to in Audio. Becca Battoe was magnificent
Absolutely.. The only reason I didn't was because I have a job to do
Love.. Love.. Love
I blushed and gushed and all the rest that comes with it. I was completely thrilled to find out there were 2 more books. I loved loved loved this!!
It doesn't compare!
Oh my. Thats hard to say I had tons of favorites. The one that made me cry was when she left 50. I knew it was going to come to it.
Almost all. It was very hard to put down. I was eager to read more and hear Christians voice in my head.
Fabulous job to the author and becca for reading it!
