no, better books to listen to. I was just courious about the book, since many people commented on this book.
did the author get payed by how many words he wrote? Ex: communication between emails, from, to, subject.
What a waste of my life! Might have been interesting to a co-ed but too stupid for an adult.
How naive the girl was and that she lacked such self confidence that she would allow herself to be used in that way and under those terms. Even if the earth was life changingly good, that was just bad judgement.
Her voice was too immature.
This book was a huge disappointment. The story line is immature and disgusting! I have no clue what all the hipe is about for these books.
There really is no story. It just takes you from one poorly written sadistic sex scene to another.
Refused to perform such a poorly written book.
Embarrassing; I'm embarrassed to have anyone know I read this series.
The marketing agent for this book must be a genius! Definitely not sold on content or literary excellence!
Not my preferred reading. Decided to listen to it to see what the hype was about. More geared to younger people.
She could have created more plots. Used same adjetives alot,
Well spoken except for man's part.
gluttons for punishment
less porn and more closure
The performance was fine, the material is what what was lacking
I thought it would be more than just a sexnovel - I was wrong
Less sex, more story
Yes, she didn't do anything wrong.
Take writing lessons!!
She read material, that in my opinion, no one could have helped!!
Its hard to relate, the conversations are unreal, real conversations with real people just are not so passive. However, someone liked them, I can't fathom how this book made ant best seller lists, it has to be the intrigue or probably the lust factor. I found it dull and boring.
Love listening to books.
Christian and Anna are weak characters without any real depth. They are fated lovers that dance around each other, each afraid to speak their feelings for imagined risk of the other leaving. The whole of story winds around the central premise of trust, either earning or losing.
To accomplish trust, they must overcome their barely controllable lust for each long enough to communicate. It is like watching primates in heat. Perpetual rutting with grunting as the only form of communications.
Whenever they come close to any form of real communication with each other, the author injects a seemingly random and trivial plot complication. Of course, these complications spiral beyond ability of the characters to handle, causing totally implausible make-up scenarios.
I am guessing that romance and beyond (this book is in the beyond category) uses mono-dimensional characters as a norm, but in this story, the lack of any depth to these characters leads to such predictable outcomes. It is truly painful to work through the story when the characters don’t provide any compelling (or non-compelling) reason to like them. I was more interested in the side characters. In fact, I felt Taylor was a more interesting character than his boss.
I do see why some might enjoy the attempted romance of the story. Grey is the pinnacle of perfection to some. Endless skills in nearly everything and endless money to pursue them. Of course with little or no time commitments.
I cannot recommend this book.
I think the terriible writing makes for unbearable narration. I couldn't listen for more than 2 minutes. Its not an appropriate book for audio.
she wasn't the issue. It was the writing.
no idea, I couldn't listen for more than 2 minutes
please refund me.
The Story is ok, but the character's have same conversation over and over.
She is blown away about how rich and good looking he is.
He is amazed how simple she is.
They repeat this excitement over and over again.
